The Secret Service has tried to contact Donald Trump’s campaign after his suggestion that “Second Amendment people” could stop Hillary Clinton from making Supreme Court picks if she’s elected, according to a CNN report.
But Trump maintains no one tried to contact him and said the CNN report was “a made up story” for ratings.
The Secret Service said the information did not come from the public affairs office, but could not confirm whether someone else in the agency made the statement.
“Those statements did not come from our public affairs office,” said Joseph Casey, a spokesperson for the Secret Service.
This is what Trump said that caused concerns that he was promoting violence against a presidential candidate: “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
