Donald Trump has delivered a stirring oration to his nation, asking why anyone would even think of bombing his political opponents, whom he hates with a violent passion.
“I am 100% against these bombs, even though I would love to see someone really hurt Hillary because she’s a traitor who deserves a long and violent death,” Mr Trump said. “Ideally with a pipe bomb.”
Mr Trump said that the “terrorists” who carried out the attack had done a terrible thing. “They’re totally incompetent. Who makes a bomb that doesn’t go off? I would have made a bomb that worked, and it would have made a huge explosion and it would have been a beautiful explosion.”
Observers agreed that it was among his most presidential speeches to date.
