President Donald Trump vowed emphatically in a tweet Wednesday that “the Second Amendment will never be repealed,” the day after publication of a retired Supreme Court justice’s commentary in favor of doing just that.
“As much as Democrats would like to see this happen … NO WAY,” Trump tweeted.
The president added: “We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!”
Trump’s tweet was prompted in part by retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ op-ed Tuesday in The New York Times advocating the rescinding of the Second Amendment.
