Trump Greeted At CPAC With ‘Lock Her Up’ Chant

There's one campaign promise that President Donald Trump dropped like a hot potato as soon as he was elected: the promise to investigate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and, if warranted, put her in jail. Trump supporters have been chanting their Hillary mantra since the campaign trail, and they haven't given up the dream.

When President Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday at National Harbor, Maryland, he brought up the topic of his old running opponent Hillary Clinton. He reminded his supporters that Clinton once referred to half of America as a 'basket of deplorables' for supporting Trump.

At the mention of Clinton's name, the crowd immediately began booing. A moment later, the old war cry started growing from the audience.

"Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!" they began chanting.

Trump waited for the chanting to drown out. After being elected, he said he was dropping any talk of going after Clinton. The FBI had brought their investigation to a close on the matter of her email scandal and concluded that she was careless, but didn't intentionally break the law. When the New York Times had pressed him on whether he was going to keep his promise to prosecute Clinton, the president answered, “It's just not something that I feel strongly about."

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways,” he added.

The crowd at CPAC wasn’t so forgiving, though. They clearly still supported prosecution. When the crowd quieted down, Trump added, “That's the problem in politics. One wrong word and it's over. She also said you're irredeemable, but we won't mention it.”

He quickly moved on to more positive topics, now applauded by the very same people who booed him last year during the primaries. The president has come a long way.
