MANCHESTER – Donald Trump voiced his support for a N.H. advisor that previously made comments saying that Hillary Clinton should be "put in the firing line" and "shot for treason."
State Rep. Al Baldasaro of Londonderry, a top Trump supporter and surrogate in the Granite State who also advises Trump on veterans issues, was at the Trump event. Baldasaro made headlines this summer for repeatedly saying that the Democratic presidential nominee should be put in front of a firing squad for treason. Baldasaro was referring to Clinton’s conduct as Secretary of State during the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which left America’s ambassador to Libya and three others dead.
Asked if he condoned those comments, Trump said “I didn’t know that. But I will tell you he’s a very fine person."
"Nobody wants to take care of the veterans in this country, who have been treated horribly, more than Al, so that's what i know," Trump added.
Asked again about Baldsaro’s comments, Trump said “I don’t know what he said. You'd have to show me what he said."
Baldasaro first made his comments regarding Clinton during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last month. The story instantly went viral, grabbing national headlines.
A Republican source from New Hampshire who was at the convention tells NH1 News that Trump was aware of what Baldasaro said about Clinton.
