It’s crossing a major line endorsing the murder of your political challengers, and it’s this sort of shameful rhetoric which motivated the Bernie Sanders-supporter to appear at the baseball practice and shoot.Rep.

was badly injured but will totally recover. Our ideas and prayers are with him.– Donald J. Trump(@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2017 What do you think about Phil Montag’s shameful comments?
