A day after presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was endorsed by the National Rifle Association, the real estate mogul took to Twitter where he labeled Hillary Clinton a hypocrite for wanting to ban all guns while having armed Secret Service security at her side, the Hill reports.
“Crooked Hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet she is surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed. No more guns to protect Hillary!” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

Trump has consistently categorized Clinton as “the most anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment candidate to ever run for office.” And at the gun group’s annual convention on Friday, Trump called for the Democratic candidate’s secret service protection to disarm.
“Let’s see how they feel walking around without their guns and their bodyguards,” he said.
According to the Hill, Clinton insists that she has not called to abolish gun ownership, but rather is pushing for “common-sense reforms.”
“I know we are a smart enough nation to figure out how you protect responsible gun owners’ rights and get guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them,” Clinton said in February, according to the New York Times.
