Hillary Clinton's campaign is now protesting what it calls Donald Trump's "pattern of inciting people to violence."
The campaign is reacting to those remarks Trump made at a rally in Florida Friday night, when he called for Clinton's Secret Service agents to be stripped of their firearms.
Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook released a statement saying,
"This kind of talk should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate. It is time Republican leaders stand up to denounce this disturbing behavior in their nominee," Mook said.
While Trump was making his comments in Florida, First Lady Michelle Obama made a stop for Clinton in the commonwealth.
At the campaign event in Fairfax Mrs.Obama addressed the controversy surrounding her husband's birth, and what voters need to think about this upcoming election.
"Being president isn't anything like reality tv. It's not about sending insulting tweets or making fiery speeches, it's about whether or not the candidate can handle the awesome responsibility of leading this country," the first lady said.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are set to campaign in another swing state, Ohio for Clinton this weekend.
Trump is scheduled to visit Texas and Colorado later Saturday.
