President Trump's speech at the NRA's national convention on Friday touched on a wide range of issues, including Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media, and Kanye West. But first and foremost, President Trump used the opportunity to talk about how the second amendment is safe under his administration, especially in the midst of the recent national effort to implement gun reform.
"Thanks to your activism and dedication, you have an administration fighting to protect your Second Amendment and we will protect your Second Amendment," he said, according to CNN. "Your Second Amendment rights are under siege, but they will never ever be under siege as long as I am your president."
According to the Daily Caller, in the middle of the speech, Trump reminded the audience that midterms were coming up that he would need to tone down his rhetoric as a result.
"We are doing really well," said Trump. “They were actually saying, three months ago when the rhetoric was rather sharp — do we agree? Now I’m trying to calm it down a little bit. So I'm not going to use the rhetoric.”
This is when Trump was interrupted after a member of the crowd yelled two words.
Trump paused, realizing what the man had yelled at him.
"I know you come from Texas — whoever the h*** you are," the president said back.
Trump then continued, mocking the previous administration for what he called "silence" during times when the president should have used more aggressive rhetoric.
He told the crowd, “The last administration had a policy of silence. Don’t talk! You may make them and him angry! Don’t talk. If a horrible statement is made about the United States, don’t say anything. Please, please. Oh, my gosh.”
Throughout the speech, Trump reminded his supporters to not be complacent heading into midterm elections.
"Don't be complacent. Don't be complacent," Trump said. "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."
In recent news, President Trump might invite Colin Kaepernick to the White House.
