In a chilling development, the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had allegedly said that his rival Hillary Clinton should be assassinated if she became the President.
In a speech the controversial business tycoon said that the “Second Amendment people” – gun owners or those backing gun rights – could stop his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton from winning the White House and picking new US Supreme Court justices.
Trump’s intended message was not immediately clear, but lawmakers advocated that the 70-year-old billionaire tycoon had given an assassination threat to Clinton.
The Trump campaign quickly refuted any such inference and asserted that Trump meant political power to stop Clinton at polls.
