Clinton calls Trump’s gun policies “dangerous”

Donald Trump’s gun policies are “not just way out there” but “dangerous” and would make America less safe, Hillary Clinton said Saturday.

Republicans are now supporting Trump over Clinton by an 86 percent-to-6 percent margin, which is up from 72 percent to 13 percent a month ago, suggesting that GOP voters are consolidating around their presumptive nominee. “He needs to work on uniting the party, not scheduling another debate”. Mrs Clinton had not yet assured her spot as Democratic candidate against closest competitor Bernie Sanders.

The Vermont senator won in Rhode Island and vowed to fight to the end of the primaries process. Fifty-four percent of respondents to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll took a dim view of Clinton, while 58% looked unfavorably on Trump.

She said she’s going to reach out to unify the Democratic Party “when it’s time”.

According to ABC News in the U.S., staff at Mr Trump’s resorts and golf courses around America said guests were not allowed to carry guns around the premises.

“The reason why I stand with her is because she first stood for me”, Fulton said. “Because. things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable”. I’m like a very smart person. “I don’t want to see the American people voting for the lesser of two evils”.

“I know how hard this job is, and I know that we need steadiness as well as strength”, she told CNN, “and I have concluded that he is not qualified to be president of the United States”.

Clinton led Trump among voters under 30 by a whopping 39 percent in March but in this new poll it’s split 45 – 42 in Clinton’s favor. Forty-one percent of Latinos hold an unfavorable opinion of her, suggesting she may also face skepticism in trying to win over the 14 percent share of Latino voters who said they would either back a third-party candidate, were still undecided or would not vote for either Clinton or Trump.

Clinton, in part because she met with the mothers early in her campaign, has made criminal justice reform and addressing gun violence a cornerstone of her campaign.

Since the start of the primary campaign, Mr Trump has used his sons, Eric and Donald Jr, both keen hunters, to forge links with the gun community and counteract their father’s image as a Manhattan liberal.

This scenario would see party delegates – Republican officials and activists – choose the nominee. Bernie Sanders hasn’t been properly vetted.

On Saturday, Mrs. Clinton reaffirmed her commitment to both gun control and the overhaul of the criminal justice system, two issues that formed the pillars of her primary campaign and have helped her win broad support among African-Americans. But she says she wants to focus on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump because his is not “a normal candidacy”.
