Congressman proposes 2. change against Trump
Raw video: Democrat member Tom Suozzi of Long Island, New York suggested, should take the American weapons, against President Trump if he doesn’t follow the Constitution.
New York Democratic Congressman is accused of violence against the President of Trump after suggesting during a town hall, which allows the citizens to take up arms against the President, if he follow the law.
“I mean, this is where the Second Change comes, quite frankly, because, you know, what if the President was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?” Rep. Tom Suozzi, D-NY, said in a March 12 Q&A session with the member groups in Huntington on Long Island.
“It’s really a question of public pressure on the President,” he said.
The exchange was caught on a Facebook-Live-stream.

According to Suozzi, the Second Amendment referred to, a constituent asked him to explain the change.
“The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms,” the Democrat said. “That’s why we have it.”
Republicans accuse Suozzi, the promotion of violence.
“I mean, this is where the Second Change comes in quite frankly,” said New York Democratic Republic of the Tom Suozzi.
“If you do not work out resistance and disability, Tom Suozzi proposes to violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Chris Martin said in a statement. “He is completely out of touch”.
A spokesman for Suozzi denied that the Congressman called for “armed rebellion” against Trump.
“A site of such great Americans as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, Congressman Suozzi explains why our founding fathers created the Second Amendment as a way for citizens to defend themselves against a tyrannical government, not of the rule of law,” a senior Advisor to Kim Devlin said in a Monday statement to Fox News.
Devlin added: “To suggest that his comments meant nothing, or that he is for an armed uprising against the existing President is both irresponsible and ridiculous.”
Suozzi made the comment about the Second Amendment, if an essential part, asked him a question to Trump and the United States, “constitutional system of checks and balances.”
Suozzi said before, the Problem could be “go to court.”
Suozzi, who served as Nassau County executive from 2002 to 2009, was elected to the Congress in 2016, and is seeking re-election this fall.
