Did Donald Trump just take a hit out on Hillary Clinton?

The United States presidential campaign took an unusual turn as Donald Trump was heard to hint at the assassination of Hillary Clinton by supporters of gun rights.

He was speaking at a rally in North Carolina about the next president’s power to appoint supreme court justices and said, “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks.” Then went on to add: “Although the second amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”

In case you’re unfamiliar with the American Constitution, the second amendment protects the right of its citizens to bear arms.

It’s a particularly contentious part of the Constitution, what with all the gun violence that seems to occur in the US, and Trump has accused his Democratic rival of wanting to abolish it, a claim Clinton denies.

Whether or not Trump intentionally suggested violence towards Clinton is open to interpretation — and Starts at 60 would love to hear your views — but many have questioned the Republican candidate over his words.

Trump has also recently claimed that the presidential election might be ‘rigged’, which many have said is an attempt to undermine the United States’ basic democractic principles.

His communication adviser, Jason Miller, attempted to explain Trump’s comments saying: “It’s called the power of unification. Second amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power.” However, at least one person at the rally seemed to think Trump had taken things a bit too far.
