Speaking at a Tuesday rally in North Carolina, Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, was discussing what would happen to the Supreme Court if his Democratic opponent were to win the White House in November, claiming she wants to “abolish the Second Amendment.”
 
“By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” he said. 
 
“Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know. But — but I’ll tell you what. That will be a horrible day.”
 
Trump’s comments were widely condemned as reckless, and on Wednesday, multiple outlets reported that the Secret Service had “more than one conversation” with Trump aides about his rhetoric.

As the protester was dragged out of the rally Wednesday, Clinton could be heard saying, “Some people get a little carried away, have you noticed that?

“Well I get carried away when I think about all of the jobs we’re going to create."

According to tweets from the event, the demonstrator was an animal rights activist.

Secret Service agents also rushed onstage at a Clinton rally in Las Vegas last week, when animal rights protesters tried to disrupt the event.
