Trump Animates California Republicans With Calls to Shoot People Who Rob Stores

From an AP story by Michael R. Blood and Jonathan J. Cooper headlined “Trump animates California Republicans with calls to shoot people who rob stores”:

In an occasionally dark and profane speech, Donald Trump on Friday sought to win over Republicans in California by complaining that rich people in Beverly Hills smell bad because they’re denied water, reiterating lies about widespread election fraud and calling on police to shoot people robbing stores.

While many of his remarks at the California Republican Party convention in Anaheim were familiar retreads of Trump’s attacks and grievances, his encouragement of violent retribution against criminals marked an escalation of his longstanding tough-on-crime message.
