Trump: I Could Shoot People in Streets and Not Lose Support
Donald Trump made a strange claim on Saturday night. The Republican presidential candidate suggested that he could shoot someone and not lose support.
Praising the loyal crowd at the Sioux Center in Iowa, Trump said, “I have the most loyal people, did you ever see that? I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
The Hill reports:
Trump made the comments as he laid into National Review, the conservative magazine that published a series of essays criticizing him. Those who submitted essays against Trump include Glenn Beck and Brent Bozell, two conservative figures who endorsed GOP presidential rival Ted Cruz.
At the speech, Trump floated the prospect of suing Cruz over whether he’s eligible to run for president and also warned that Christianity was under “siege.”
