Those remarks––easily in the top tier of “Imagine if Obama said that” Trump quotes––were roundly criticized by Republicans and conservatives:
This is not due process in a free society. https://t.co/nMjoyjq1oa

So Trump just literally proposed gun-grabbing without due process. Yeah, this is going awesome.

Has any conservative org been more aggressively supportive of Trump than the NRA? Yet today he:
-Seemed open to assault weapons ban;
-Scorned concealed-carry reciprocity;
-Mocked Republicans for being afraid of the NRA;
-Advocated seizure of weapons without due process

Well, remember what Trump said about the concept of due process literally weeks ago?
Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused – life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?

That came on the heels of the scandal about the ousted White House aide who was accused of domestic abuse by two ex-wives.
There is ALWAYS a tweet.
