During his Monday night rally in El Paso, Texas, President Donald Trump defended the Second Amendment by recounting the Battle of Gonzales and saying, “Come and Take It.”
He was winding toward the conclusion of his remarks when he began to speak of those things distinctly American, those things that bind together citizens across this country as well as the thousands who flooded into the building to hear Trump speak.
After a few more comments and massive applause, Trump narrowed his comments to the love of freedom exemplified by the state of Texas in particular.
On May 4, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Trump referenced the Battle of Gonzales during his speech to the NRA Annual Meeting.
