Trump's Second Amendment comment and recent Israeli history

Hosted by  • 

Donald Trump and his campaign have been trying to explain what he really meant by statements he made at a rally this week.

Hillary Clinton's campaign and others are insisting that Trump's comment could incite a deranged supporter to take potentially deadly action. Trump and his aides insist that all he meant was that Second Amendment supporters will be unified against Clinton when they go to the polls.

At Republican convention in Cleveland, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie whipped up the audience into a frenzy when he tried Clinton.

Columnist Chemi Shalev, who's based in the US for the liberal Israeli paper Ha'aretz, covered the RNC. He says both speeches remind him of a tragic event in his own country.
