Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Trump’s Latest Threat of Violence

Yesterday Donald Trump again threatened violence against Hillary Clinton, saying that Secret Service “should drop all weapons. Disarm immediately. Take their guns away, let's see what happens to her. Take their guns away, OK? It'll be very dangerous."

It’s a typical Trump line: a threat and a lie wrapped in a smirk. This time the lie is about Clinton’s position on gun laws. But the threat is clear. He either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about what happened to Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, or John F. Kennedy, who all had armed Secret Service protection, or Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., who did not.
