Donald Trump says, Barack Obama founded ISIS.
Donald Trump says, Hillary Clinton founded ISIS.
ISIS is the enemy of the USA. If the life of an American is threatened by ISIS, the citizen can shoot the attacker. The constitution gives this right to every citizen of the USA according to the 2nd amendment.
Donald Trump insinuates, the 2nd amendment can be used, in order to solve a problem one might have with Hillary Clinton’s policy.
This rhetoric troubles me a lot. These two statements combined might lead to an attack against Hillary Clinton. People who believe Trump’s lie that Hillary Clinton founded ISIS, might understand Trump’s 2nd amendment statement as a patriotic call to solve the Clinton problem the 2nd amendment way.
I hope precautions have been taken!
