Kaine: Trump Incited Violence Against Hillary with Call to Disarm Her Bodyguards

‘I was stunned when I saw it, although he’s done it before’

Kaine: Trump Is Inciting Violence Against Clinton (The Washington Free Beacon)

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) said Sunday that Donald Trump was inciting violence against Hillary Clinton when the GOP candidate suggested the pro-gun-control Clinton’s bodyguards should be disarmed.

“I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm … I think they should disarm immediately,” Trump said on Friday. “Take their guns away, she doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her.”

Kaine told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace he thought it was a call for violence against Clinton when prompted.

“I do believe that, Chris,” Kaine said. “I was stunned when I saw it, although he’s done it before.”
