    Former Marine Al Baldasaro defends the donations of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at a news conference at Trump Tower where Trump addressed issues about the money he pledged to donate to veterans groups on May 31, 2016, in New York City.

    An adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign who called for Hillary Clinton to be shot is visiting the White House.

    Al Baldasaro attended a veterans event Friday just hours before White House press secretary Sean Spicer denounced a play for seemingly urging violence against the president.

    Baldasaro, who advised Trump on veterans issues, said last summer that he believed Clinton "committed treason" for putting American lives at risk while secretary of state.

    He then said "anyone that commits treason should be shot."
