U.S. President Donald Trump Monday accused New York state officials of trying to "take down" the National Rifle Association as the powerful gun rights group faces internal divisions and claims of financial improprieties.The gun group was roiled over the weekend when internal disputes spilled into the open at its annual meeting in Indianapolis, when retired U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North said he will step down as NRA president.The NRA, with more than 5 million members, is the most powerful and well-connected gun lobby in the United States.Friday, Trump used the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis to announce he was pulling the United States out of an international arms treaty signed in 2013 by Democratic President Barack Obama but opposed by the NRA and conservative groups.
