(CNN) — A US Secret Service official confirms to CNN that the USSS has spoken to the Trump campaign regarding his Second Amendment comments. “There has been more than one conversation” on the topic,” the official told CNN. The campaign told USSS he did not intend to incite violence.
Meantime, campaigning in Des Moines Wednesday, Hillary Clinton said there could be “tremendous consequences” facing Trump following his comments.
Clinton says the remark was a “casual inciting of violence” that shows he lacks the temperament to be commander-in-chief. The comments, Clinton says, were the latest in a long string by Trump that “crossed the line” and raises the stakes for the 2016 campaign.
She says that words matter and “if you are running to be president or you are president of the United States words can have tremendous consequences.”
Trump insists he never advocated violence and his comments Tuesday have been manipulated for political purposes.
