Trump Says Clinton’s Bodyguards Should Disarm: ‘Let’s See What Happens’

ABC News(MIAMI) — Donald Trump took aim at Hillary Clinton during a rally in Miami Friday night — suggesting that her bodyguards “should disarm” and asking “let’s see what happens to her.”

Trump has long attacked what he says is Clinton’s position on guns and gun control and told supporters in the past that she wants to abolish the Second Amendment.

“I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons,” Trump told supporters Friday night. “They should disarm right. Right. I think they should disarm immediately. What do you think yes? Yes.

“Take their guns away she doesn’t want guns. Take their — let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, OK. It will be very dangerous.”

Earlier, Trump walked out to the theme song from “Les Miserables” and in front of a full-screen graphic behind him that read “Les Deplorables.”

“Welcome to all of you deplorables,” Trump told the crowd, referencing Hillary Clinton’s claim, which she later walked back, that half of Trump’s supporters belonged in a “basket of deplorables.”

Earlier in the day, during an event at his newly-opened hotel in Washington, D.C., Trump acknowledged that President Obama was, in fact, born in the United States.

“President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” Trump said.

The GOP nominee’s statement came after years of serving as a leading proponent of the discredited “birther” movement, which has promoted the belief that Obama is not a native-born U.S. citizen.
