Donald Trump said 'Second Amendment people' should do what?

"By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks". He quickly added: "Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is".

Martin Mulholland, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said in a statement via email to POLITICO: "The Secret Service is aware of the comment".

Liberal grass roots organization MoveOn.org called on every Republican up and down the ballot to repudiate Trump over his remark.

"Donald Trump is known for making his provocative, off-the-cuff statements, but it is completely inappropriate to even suggest that supporters of the Second Amendment would somehow use the right to bear arms to influence or react in any way to any nomination for any position".

"I would disagree with you on this point", Hunter told Blitzer.

According to the CNN "poll of polls" - combining the results of six major election polls - Clinton is now leading against Trump with an average of 49 per cent of the vote, compared to 39 per cent for Trump.

Several of Trump's supporters came out in his defense.

Trump's behavior since the party's convention in July has quickened the drip-drip-drip of Republicans in recent days to publicly withhold their support. She has a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania and the narrowest of edges in OH, but Florida, with the largest cache of Electoral College votes is a tie. "Why can't he stop saying stupid things?" said James Harris, a Missouri Republican political strategist.

"I gave a massive tax decrease yesterday", Trump said, referring to economic plans he unveiled Monday.

"What he meant by that was you have the power to vote against her", Giuliani said to cheers.

Democratic lawmakers expressed shock about Trump's comments. Progress NC Action, for example, pushed North Carolina Gov. "It's an assassination threat, seriously upping the possibility of a national tragedy & crisis".

Norman Ornstein, a resident scholar at the center-right American Enterprise Institute, called Trump's comments "a reckless statement from a reckless maniac".

The province held the most animosity toward Trump than any other region in the country, with only three per cent of people saying the real estate developer would be "very good" or "good" for the country.

"Second Amendment people have wonderful spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power".

A new Quinnipiac University swing state poll found Donald Trump is in a "virtual likely voter tie" with Hillary Clinton in Florida and is slightly trailing her in Ohio.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook didn't take Trump's comments as a get-out-the-vote message.

The Secret Service - which is tasked with protecting both Trump and Clinton - told USA media it was "aware" of the comments, but did not say whether they merited an investigation, which some Democratic lawmakers have said is necessary.

The polls provides a glimpse into how hard it will be for Trump to win the 270 electoral votes to become the next president of the United States.

The Trump campaign, including Pierson, initially said Trump was talking about the power of pro-gun rights voters to keep Clinton out of office ― not referencing any concerns about violence at all.

Trump has planted himself firmly on the side of gun owners with a "law and order" campaign.

Introducing Trump later at another rally in North Carolina, in Fayetteville, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani accused the news media of taking the remark out of context to help Clinton get elected.
