A Trump campaign spokesperson clarified on Monday that the former president did not actually buy a Glock during his visit to a gun store in South Carolina.
In a since-deleted post, Trump’s spokesman Steven Cheung wrote that the former president had purchased a Glock firearm. The post also included a video where Trump was being shown the firearm and could be heard saying, “I want to buy one.”
But, Cheung later clarified to CNN that Trump “did not actually purchase the gun while visiting the armory in South Carolina”.
It is a federal crime to buy a firearm while under felony indictment or to sell a firearm to someone under felony indictment.
Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican Party nomination for president, currently faces 91 felony counts across four indictments.
