Donald Trump’s presidential campaign says the billionaire disagrees with an adviser calling for Hillary Clinton to be shot for treason. 

“Mr. Trump and the campaign do not agree,” spokeswoman Hope Hicks said Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.

{mosads}The Secret Service is reportedly investigating New Hampshire delegate Al Baldasaro over remarks he made about Clinton.

Baldasaro fiercely criticized the former secretary of State for her handling of the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

“[She’s] a piece of garbage,” he said. “She is a disgrace for the lies that she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there.”

“She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting back-up security,” Baldasaro said of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

“Something’s wrong there. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason.”

Secret Service spokesman Robert Hobackis on Wednesday said the agency is aware of Baldasaro’s comments and will “conduct the appropriate investigation.”
