During the 2016 campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump drew outrage for suggesting that the "Second Amendment people" could do something if then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won that cycle's presidential election.
Many saw it as a veiled call for his supporters to unleash violence on the former Secretary of State.
Four years later, Trump is drawing similar outrage for his questionable word choice regarding 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at a rally in Michigan.
Trump was repeating the campaign's oft-deployed talking point that Biden's candidacy is really a plot to get his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), installed as President.
Trump suggested that Biden would be "shot" within three weeks of taking office, setting the stage for Harris, whom Trump falsely claims is the most liberal person in the United States Senate.
"That's why they're talking about the 25th amendment, right? Three weeks. Three weeks in, Joe's shot, 'Let's go Kamala, are you get ready?' Most liberal person in the Senate."
Some thought Trump was floating the idea that Biden would be assassinated.
Others argued that the President meant "shot" as in "tired" or "not up to the job," while conceding that the word choice was irresponsible at best.
The election deciding whether or not Trump will be a one-term President is on November 3, but early voting is underway in at least 40 states.
