Trump: Black Americans Deserve Same 2A Protection Hillary Gets

posted on August 18, 2016

Speaking in West Bend, Wis., on Thursday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump pointed out again just how insulated and dismissive Hillary Clinton is of the concerns of most Americans, as she takes around-the-clock armed security as her due, even while seeking to deprive African-Americans and other minorities of that same constitutional protection, Breitbart reports

“It’s easy for Hillary Clinton to turn a blind eye to crime when she has her own private security force that, by the way, carries guns,” Trump said, before drawing a contrast between himself and Clinton: “I believe all Americans—not just the powerful—are entitled to security.” 

The necessity of an armed populace to the security of a free state has been a frequent touchstone of the Trump presidential campaign. As Trump noted, armed citizens might have cut short the Paris terrorist attacks that killed 130 people because, where good people are armed, “bullets go both ways.”
