Donald Trump's spokeswoman has threatened to wear an aborted foetus on live television following outrage over a bullet necklace she wore in a recent CNN interview.

Katrina Pierson at an interview this week on an exchange of rhetorical barbs between Mr Trump and his Democratic adversary Hillary Clinton wore a necklace made of multi-colored bullets, strung together.

Founder of gun control advocacy group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Shannon Watts, lambasted the controversial accessory on Twitter, writing, “Surely @KatrinaPierson wore bullet necklace on #CNN to bring attention to 90 Americans fatally shot daily #gunsense”.

Ms Pierson quickly shot back: “Maybe I'll wear a fetus next time& bring awareness to 50 million aborted people that will never ger to be on Twitter”.

It remains unclear where Ms Pierson found the 50 million figure. Under 700,000 legal elective abortions were performed in 2012, according to the latest statistics from federal health authority the Centers for Disease Control.
