USA: NRA gun lobby endorses Trump for US President

United States, Louisville
May 21, 2016 at 00:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Executive Director of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) Chris Cox announced the NRA's official endorsement of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump for President of the United States, during the NRA's annual meeting at the 'Freedom Hall' in Louisville, Kentucky, on Friday.

"On behalf of the thousands of patriots in this room and the five million NRA members across this country and the tens of millions who support us, I am officially announcing the NRA's endorsement of Donald Trump for President," stated Cox before introducing Trump as "the next President of the United States."

After calling former actor and President of the NRA Charlton Heston a "great guy" and "an incredible guy" who "did battle with the Clintons to protect our Second Amendment," Trump went on to accuse Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of wanting "to abolish the Second Amendment," adding that "we're not going to let that happen, I can tell you that right now."

Trump added that if Clinton takes people's guns away "it's going to be a very unfair situation, and that's why we're going to call her Heartless Hillary," adding "somehow I like Crooked Hillary better."
