Trump accuses New York Gov. Cuomo, AG James of attempting to destroy NRA

Trump at NRA

President Donald Trump accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and state Attorney General Letitia James of attempting to “destroy” the National Rifle Association (NRA).

In a tweet on Monday, Trump suggested that the New York’s investigation into NRA is unlawful. He also encouraged the gun rights advocacy group to “stop the infighting.”

The President made his comments after the New York Attorney General’s Office launched an investigation into the NRA. A spokesperson for AG James told NPR that subpoenas were issued to the organization.

In response to Trump, the New York Attorney General’s Office said, “Attorney General Letitia James is focused on enforcing the rule of law. In any case we pursue, we will follow the facts wherever they may lead. We wish the President would share our respect for the law.”
