O Former President of the United States Donald Trump may be involved in (new) problems, after a visit to the firearms company Palmetto State Armory, in Columbia, South Carolina, this Monday.
Trump was filmed expressing his desire to buy a gun and his campaign spokesperson even wrote, in a now-deleted post on the social network X (formerly Twitter), that the former president had purchased it.
Note, however, that this is where the problem lies, as it is illegal for a person under federal charges to purchase firearms. Trump, remember, faces 91 criminal charges across four separate indictments.
It all started when Trump stopped at the Palmetto State Armory, in an unscheduled campaign event, and was shown a Glock pistol with his face on it.
“Wow,” says Trump. “I have to buy one”, adds the former president, more than once, while observing the firearm.

Steven Cheung, spokesperson for the Trump campaign, seems to have forgotten that the matter could constitute a crime and shared a video of what happened on the social network X.
“President Trump buys a @GLOCKInc in South Carolina!”, he wrote in the caption of the images.
The publication was since deleted, but the Internet did not forgive, capturing records not only of the publication, but also saving the video that quickly became a trend in the United States.

The campaign responded to NBC News and claimed that Trump did not complete the purchase.
