On his way out to Ohio, Donald Trump spoke to the press about the breaking news on Thursday that New York State Attorney General Letitia James and her office filed a lawsuit to dissolve the National Rifle Association over multiple allegations of fraud and self-dealing.
Trump didn’t appear to like the news and attacked James and her office over the lawsuit.
“That’s a very terrible thing that just happened,” Trump said, via CBS News. “I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life.”
He went on to say that he’s been telling the NRA to move to Texas “for a long time” because “Texas would be a great place and an appropriate place for the NRA.”
Take a look at his remarks in the video clip below:
