Donald Trump is at it again.

On Friday, the Republican Presidential Candidate said that the bodyguards assigned to the Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, should “disarm immediately” and “see what happens.”

“She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before,” he said at a Miami, Florida campaign rally. “I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm. Right? Right? I think they should disarm immediately. What do you think? Yes? Yes. Yeah. Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, okay? It would be very dangerous.”

A spokesperson for the Secret Service did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, issued a statement to PEOPLE on Friday, saying Trump “has a pattern of inciting people to violence.”

“Whether this is done to provoke protesters at a rally or casually or even as a joke, it is an unacceptable quality in anyone seeking the job of Commander in Chief,” Mook said. “But we’ve seen again and again that no amount of failed resets can change who Donald Trump is. He is unfit to be President and it is time Republican leaders stand up to denounce this disturbing behavior in their nominee.”

This is not the first time Trump has insinuated gun violence toward Clinton.

In May, he made a similar comment when he addressed a National Rifle Association conference.

Trump also tweeted on May 21: “Crooked Hillary wants to get rid of all guns yet she is surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed. No more guns to protect Hillary!”

Reactions on Twitter have been loud in demanding action with #InterrogateTrump trending online.

“@SecretService Are you waiting until a #Trump supporter takes a shot at @HillaryClinton to #InterrogateTrump? Talking obviously didn’t work,” one user tweeted.

Others pointed out that the last time Trump had made similar comments, the Secret Service had only declared themselves “aware” of his messages.

Concern for the safety of Secret Service agents was also rampant on social media.

Trump made further comments on Friday, saying the president is required to balance different responsibilities.

“To do these things, you need a lot of energy — she doesn’t have the energy,” Trump said. “And, in my opinion, she is totally unfit to be the president of the United States.”

At a different point, he also bragged that he often conducts multiple campaign events a day.

“Do you think Hillary Clinton can get though one?” he said.

His comments come days after making headlines when he refused to acknowledge that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S.

“I’ll answer that question at the right time,” Trump told The Washington Post. “I just don’t want to answer it yet.”

Clinton responded back, tweeting, “President Obama’s successor cannot and will not be the man who led the racist birther movement. Period.”
