The former US president, who is facing 91 criminal charges across four indictments, was in a gun shop in South Carolina when he was presented with the weapon.

“I’m going to buy one, I want to buy one,” Trump said while looking at the special edition Glock pistol with his face and Trump 45 emblazoned on the barrel.

The $830 weapon was one of the store’s bestsellers, shop staff told Trump.

He replied: “They like me.”

But according to reports, he did not buy the gun. Federal law bars anyone under a felony indictment from purchasing a firearm.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The exchange happened during a campaign stop in South Carolina - a battleground state in the US.

Trump is the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
