The daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr., tweeted in response to Donald Trump's ambiguous "Second Amendment people" controversy Tuesday night,  calling the Republican presidential nominee's words "distasteful, disturbing, dangerous."
 

 
Bernice King, now a minister, was only five years old when her father was killed April 4, 1968. She presumably interpreted the following Trump words to be a call to assassinate Hillary Clinton.

"Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment," Trump said. "By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."


Trump's campaign issued a "statement on dishonest media" Tuesday night, claiming the latter remark was referring to the power to vote, not to commit gun violence. 

"It's called the power of unification —2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power," Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications advisor, wrote. "And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won't be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump."
