NRA "Under Siege," According to President Trump

Earlier this morning, President Trump took to Twitter in order to articulate his concerns regarding the National Rifle Association (NRA).
According to the president, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s attorney general are actively working to take down the NRA. It’s worth noting that Cuomo has attempted to go after the organization’s finances on multiple occasions.

Reviewing the President’s Statements

President Trump vocalized his concerns about the NRA being “under siege” in the following tweets:

A Backstory

Trump’s concerns come after the recent announcement that Oliver North, the president of the NRA, will not retain his position for a second term. Furthermore, there have been attempts to remove NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre from his current position. Thus far, the aforementioned attempts have proven to be unsuccessful.
The turmoil within the NRA comes as investigations and issued subpoenas are directed towards the organization. Apparently, various Democrat officials believe that NRA may be in possession of dirty money.

“Under Siege” is Right

The president is very correct in his assertion that the NRA is under siege. In all honesty, this should not come as a shock. Democrats have a longstanding habit of going after various organizations which they view as politically threatening. Over the past few years, countless Democrats have spoken out against the NRA and professed their desires to do away with the organization altogether.
If Democrats are truly as worried about dirty money as they claim, they should first look within their own ranks. Contrary to their narrative, there are many Democrats who are as corrupt as they claim others to be. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already facing scrutiny regarding money which was used to fund her congressional campaign.
