Trump challenges Hillary to ‘disarm’ bodyguards

Donald Trump is challenging Hillary Clinton to “disarm” her bodyguards to demonstrate she doesn’t need guns for protection.

{mosads}The Republican presidential front-runner took to Twitter to dare Clinton to put her money where her mouth is.

“Hillary said that guns don’t keep you safe,” Trumped tweeted Sunday. “If she really believes that, she should demand that her heavily armed bodyguards quickly disarm!”

Clinton has a strong record of gun control. In October, she proposed a series of executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence, which prompted President Obama to issue his own gun-control plan.

Republicans argue that armed citizens are better able to defend themselves in cases of domestic terrorism, such as the mass shooting in Paris.

But Democrats say more guns will only escalate the situation. Clinton has turned her focus toward keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
