Donald Trump, facing jail time, absurdly claims that he never called for Hillary Clinton to be locked up

There are many things about 2016 that many people may have buried deep in their minds, making it almost impossible to recall. One thing we guess almost no one forgets? Donald Trumpthe ceaseless calls of imprisoned Hillary Clinton, this was repeated so often at the time (and for years to come!) that they had their own campaign slogan: “Lock her up.” That’s why it was absurd when the former president declared over the weekend that he never supported putting his then-rival behind bars.

Talking to Fox and Friends Weekend, Trump falsely claimed: “I didn’t say ‘lock her up,’ but people said, ‘lock her up, lock her up.’ Then we won. And I said—and I said it quite openly—I said, ‘okay, come on, relax, let’s go, we’ve got to make our country great.’”

In fact, Trump repeatedly called for Clinton to be jailed during the 2016 campaign, a small sample of which included:

  • Speak in one July 2016 protests, “Every time I mention her, everyone screams, ‘Lock her up, lock her up.’ What do you know? I’m starting to agree with you.”
  • Write on X, then Twitter“Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted and jailed. Instead, she is running for president in what appears to be a rigged election.”
  • Declare in time June 2016 protests that Clinton “should go to jail.”
  • Told Clinton in a meeting October 2016 presidential debate: “If I win, I will instruct my attorney general to send a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” and said that if he is in charge of the law then she will “in prison.”

Coincidentally, calls for Clinton’s imprisonment have not stopped now that she is no longer Trump’s opponent. In September 2020, when he was racing with Joe Biden, He answered “I agree” with slogans calling for the former Democratic candidate to be locked up.

Meanwhile, he also claimed in 2016 that Clinton should not be allowed to run for president because she maybe indicted.

Why is Trump trying to rewrite history here? First of all, he is a pathological liar, and Lying is his business. But he also seems worried that many of his demands that Clinton — who has never even been charged — go to prison will come back to haunt him when he is sentenced on July 11 . Although that could happen. The former president will not go to jail, four years in prison also on the table.
