Trump Headlines NRA Event

Former President Donald Trump received a warm welcome from members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) this weekend, arguing that Americans’ gun rights are on the ballot in November’s election. The former president made the statement just one night after he received applause from Minnesota’s Republican Party leaders, where he argued that his campaign would make a serious push for the state.

“Let there be no doubt, the survival of our Second Amendment is very much on the ballot. It’s under siege,” he told the crowd.

“We need the Second Amendment for safety. Forget about going hunting and all the things you do — we need it for safety. Because you know the bad guys are not giving up their guns. The bad ones are not giving up their guns,” Trump said.

Trump said that if President Joe Biden won another term, “they are coming for your guns, 100%.”

The event also saw the organization announce its support for Trump in the November election.

The former president was joined by a number of dignitaries, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).

Trump headlined the Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in Minnesota Friday, where he said that his campaign would push to win the state. The former president narrowly lost the state in 2016 to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. No Republican presidential candidate has won the state since 1972.

Trump’s statement also came as he plans a number of other events in states that have traditionally voted for Democrats. Earlier this month he held a rally in New Jersey that his campaign said attracted as many as 100,000 people. Trump said that his campaign would try to win the state, which has not been won by a Republican in more than 30 years.

In addition, the Trump campaign announced an upcoming event in New York. The former president said that he would win his former home state. He visited a number of locations in New York City following his court dates, where he was welcomed by cheering supporters.
