Trump made a speech in front of the NRA’s annual meeting, committing to defend the constitutional right to bear arms. But he also remarked on something quite stunning. The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump joked during the National Rifle Association (NRA) annual meeting on Friday that he doesn’t need a gun to stop the attempted “coup” against his presidency.
“Every day of my administration we are taking power out of Washington, D.C., and returning it to the American people — where it belongs. And you see it now better than ever with all of the resignations of bad apples,” the president said.
“They tried for a coup, didn’t work out so well,” he added, presumably referring to the investigation into alleged Russia collusion and the FBI’s attempts to spy on his campaign.
As the crowd of NRA members cheered, Trump slipped in a joke: “And I didn’t need a gun for that one, did I?”
Trump is right to point this out: in which country would an attempted coup NOT result in bloodshed? It is a testament to the American Constitution, due process, and the strength of our institutions that the American president remains in power despite the Deep State wanting him out of office.
