New York is attempting to dissolve the National Rifle Association following investigations of fraud within the organization.

On Thursday, Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit against the NRA. The filing claimed the association had misused upwards of $64 million for personal gain and awarded contracts to friends with special permissions.

President Trump has since commented on the lawsuit. He suggested the NRA move their operations to Texas.

“I just heard about that. That’s a very terrible thing that just happened. I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life. …This has been going on for a long time. They’ve been absolutely decimated by the cost of that lawsuit, and it’s very sad, but I would suggest that is what they should be doing.” – Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States

On Twitter, he added the “radical left New York is trying to destroy the NRA.”

Meanwhile, the president of the NRA has dismissed the suit as a “baseless, premeditated attack on the organization and the Second Amendment.”
