President Trump went all-in on the Second Amendment, while addressing supporters at the National Rifle Association’s annual conference–and urged them to elect more Republicans in November to defend their right to bear arms.
“Thanks to your activism and dedication, you have an administration fighting to protect your Second Amendment and we will protect your Second Amendment,” Trump told the crowd in Dallas.
“Your Second Amendment rights are under siege, but they will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president.”
Trump also urged NRA members to go into the November election swinging… and not take victory or defeat for granted.
“Don’t be complacent. Don’t be complacent,” Trump told the crowd. “History says that when you win the presidency, you get complacent. You know the feeling? Like 90% of the time you win the presidency and for whatever reason you lose the midterm. We can’t let that happen. And the word is complacent.”
“We cannot get complacent,” Trump emphasized.
Trump also predicted that Republicans would do unexpectedly well in 2018–saying that “the Democrats are very concerned.”
“You watch how well we do in ’18, you watch,” Trump said.
