President Donald Trump stopped by the Palmetto State Armory on Monday while en route to a speaking engagement in Summerville, South Carolina, showing his solidarity with gun-toting, law-abiding American citizens amidst the Biden administration’s harsh push for gun control.
Trump examined different weapons inside the store, briefly greeted the press and thanked them for being there, and asked questions about different models of weapons. The store also owner briefly shared a story of how much he enjoyed watching Trump’s former reality show, “The Apprentice.”
The president’s appearance at the Palmetto State Armory came as Joe Biden announced the establishment of the “Office of Gun Violence Prevention,” where he appointed Kamala Harris to spearhead its efforts.
Biden’s anti-Second Amendment policy stances come in stark contrast to President Trump, who has staunchly supported the gun rights of Americans since his 2016 presidential run.
Earlier this year, President Trump vowed to NRA members in Indiana that as president again, “I promise you this – with me at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, no one will lay a finger on your firearms…I will uphold those glorious words: shall not be infringed.”
