New York Attorney General Letitia James pushed back on President Donald Trump's comments regarding the National Rifle Association's alleged troubles by saying she wishes the president would show "respect for the law."

Trump on Monday morning reacted to the news that James' office is investigating the NRA's tax-exempt status by writing on Twitter, "The NRA is under siege by Cuomo and the New York State A.G., who are illegally using the State's legal apparatus to take down and destroy this very important organization, & others. It must get its act together quickly, stop the internal fighting, & get back to GREATNESS - FAST!"

He followed that by writing, "....People are fleeing New York State because of high taxes and yes, even oppression of sorts. They didn't even put up a fight against SALT - could have won. So much litigation. The NRA should leave and fight from the outside of this very difficult to deal with (unfair) State!"

James reacted with a short but strongly worded tweet of her own.

"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," she wrote. "We wish the President would share our respect for the law."

It was reported in recent days that the NRA is facing financial troubles.
