Trump says NRA ‘under siege’ by Dem officials who want to ‘destroy’ it

Trump celebrates economy, Mueller report during NRA address

Trump takes a victory lap during address; White House chief correspondent John Roberts reports.

President Trump said Monday that the National Rifle Association -- gripping by infighting and turmoil that exploded into public view over the past week -- is “under siege” by Democratic officials he alleged are working to “destroy” the organization.

“The NRA is under siege by Cuomo and the New York State A.G., who are illegally using the State’s legal apparatus to take down and destroy this very important organization, & others. It must get its act together quickly, stop the internal fighting, & get back to GREATNESS - FAST!” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

NEW YORK STATE INVESTIGATING NRA'S FINANCES; SUBPOENAS ISSUED

He then urged the NRA, which is chartered in New York, to leave the state.


The president’s tweets come amid upheaval at the organization, with NRA President Oliver North announcing he won’t serve a second term and New York state Attorney General Letitia James pursuing an investigation into the NRA’s finances.

Amid the group's annual convention, North announced Saturday that he would step down from his role as president. The move followed his failed attempt to remove NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. The rift within the NRA was fueled in part by the New York investigation.

“The Office of New York State Attorney General Letitia James has launched an investigation related to the National Rifle Association (NRA),” spokeswoman Kelly Donnelly confirmed in an email to the Associated Press. “As part of its investigation, the Attorney General has issued subpoenas.”

William A. Brewer, the NRA’s outside lawyer, said the gun lobby group “will fully cooperate with an inquiry into its finances.”

James, a Democrat, vowed during her campaign last year to investigate the NRA's not-for-profit status if elected.

“I will use the constitutional power as an attorney general to regulate charities, that includes the NRA, to investigate their legitimacy,” she said at a July 12 rally. The group began a review of all its contractors last summer after James first promised to investigate.

NRA PRESIDENT SAYS HE WON'T SERVE A SECOND TERM AMID TURMOIL IN GUN RIGHTS GROUP

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, meanwhile, for months has been targeting the NRA and its finances.

The NRA sued Cuomo last year, claiming that Cuomo’s “blacklisting” campaign threatened its ability to pursue its mission. The group said it lost insurance coverage after New York’s actions, which they claimed blocked organizations from doing business with the NRA.

Cuomo, later Monday morning, hit back at Trump blasting him for doing "nothing" about gun violence.

"President Trump: 74,600 Americans have died from gun violence since you were elected. You have done nothing but tweet about it. Unlike you, NY is not afraid to stand up to the NRA. As for the NRA, we’ll remember them in our thoughts and prayers," Cuomo tweeted.



Fox News’ Louis Casiano, Lukas Mikelionis and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The way the NRA is going they are going to destroy themselves from within. They need to get out of NYC and also they need to get out of the lobbying business and return to their roots.

Can't agree with that. I believe if it weren't for the NRA our guns would have been long gone. We have no idea what all they do to help us, unlike democrats. CHARLIE.

If they get out of the lobbying business, then who will lobby for pro-gun legislation? The Dummycrats?

they been trying since I became a member in the early 70s. Nothing new here. Maybe instead of a few words a speech writer gave him to say he ought to start really fighting for our gun rights like he promised. What has he done so far other then sell out bump stocks to appease the liberals. What he needs to understand is its him with the power not the NRA. NRA does nothing but collect money??? Without them you would have been screwed 50 years ago. Tell me who does more then they do or have????? I hear that all the time. 99.9 percent of the time from people to cheap to part with 25 bucks and figure why should I. Ill leave it to the rest of the gun owners to foot the bill.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STEEL FOR TANKS NOT FENCES!!!
