Statement from Robby Mook on Trump’s Comments Today in Wilmington, NC

After Donald Trump’s comments in Wilmington, NC today, Hillary for America Campaign Manager Robby Mook released the following statement: “This is simple—what Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.

The message was very clear and enough is enough. We do not joke about assassination in this country - or anywhere!
