"Whether this is done to provoke protesters at a rally or casually or even as a joke, it is an unacceptable quality in anyone seeking the job of Commander in Chief," campaign manager Robby Mook said. "This kind of talk should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate, just like it should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate to peddle a conspiracy theory about the President of the United States for five years."
At a rally in Miami, Fla., Friday night, Trump, while hitting Clinton for her position on gun control, said of her security detail: “Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns … let’s see what happens to her."
The comments drew comparisons to Trump's previous remark that "Second Amendment people" could do something to prevent Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices.
The Clinton campaign said Trump, despite running a more traditional operation in recent weeks, hasn't changed from the primaries.
"We’ve seen again and again that no amount of failed resets can change who Donald Trump is. He is unfit to be President and it is time Republican leaders stand up to denounce this disturbing behavior in their nominee," Mook said.
