With his first 100 days in office coming to an end, President Donald Trump has chosen do a series of rallies and spoke during a National Rifle Association conference. During his speech, Trump warned the audience that “Pocahontas” may threaten their gun rights in 2020. His reference was directly associated with Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Trump spent the beginning of his speech boasting his election victory, this time adding new information and state by state results. He then slipped into his speech that the audience wouldn’t have to find a pro-gun candidate in 2020 because they already had one.
However, after he hinted at his second term run, President Trump warned those in attendance that “Pocahontas” might try and run. He then added that she is NOT pro-gun. It’s safe to assume that Trump was indeed talking about Warren due to the multiple times he called Warren this during his campaign. You can also watch the entire speech below:
During the meat of his speech, President Trump reminded attendees of his success in protecting gun access and pushed his successful placement of Neil Gorsuch as the New U.S. Supreme Court judge. During his speech, Trump also made clear his stance on “responsible” gun ownership:
“You have a true friend and champion in the White House. No longer will federal agencies be coming after law-abiding gun owners. No longer will the government be trying to undermine your rights and your freedoms as Americans.”
Trump has long advocated for gun rights, but during his campaign, he made it very clear that his presidency would protect gun rights. Shortly after the NRA gave backing to then candidate Donald Trump, he said the following:
“The Second Amendment is on the ballot in November. The only way to save our Second Amendment is to vote for a person that you all know named Donald Trump. Okay? I will tell you. I will never let you down.”
Saturday, April 28th will be the 100th day Trump has been in office. Do you think Trump has what it takes to keep up the rest of his term?
