The Secret Service has not formally spoken to Donald Trump regarding a suggestion that “Second Amendment people” could stop Hillary Clinton from curbing gun rights, according to a federal official. CNN previously reported that the agency had done so.

Speaking at a rally in North Carolina on Tuesday, Trump said: “If [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks.” He then went on to state: “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The comments led many to wonder whether Trump was suggesting that gun owners turn their weapons on his rival.

While Trump’s critics seethed at the potential meaning behind his statement, his campaign launched a statement which insisted the remark was about “unification” of “Second Amendment people,” blaming the angry frenzy on a “dishonest media” which was quick to report a false narrative.
