Former GOP senator endorses Hillary Clinton following Orlando terror attack, cites her anti-NRA record
South Dakota's Larry Pressler slams Donald Trump for having "pledged publicly total cooperation with the NRA"
At least one Republican is so disgusted by Donald Trump’s response to the deadliest mass shooting attack in recent U.S. history that he’s endorsed Trump’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, specifically slamming Trump’s allegiance to the National Rifle Association.
“Secretary Clinton would be able to handle such explosive situations which are terrorist inspired much better than Donald Trump,” former South Dakota Senator Larry Pressler said in a statement Sunday. Pressler, the first Vietnam veteran elected to the U.S. Senate, said that Clinton “has experience and is anti-(National Rifle Association).”
“Remember that these domestic terrorists also buy automatic weapons,” Pressler explained, calling for “a much more extensive background check system for buying or transporting assault weapons.”
