“Such an awesome letter from a 9-year-old supporter who came to one of my N.C. rallies yesterday,” Donald Trump Jr. said on Instagram. "Thanks Brylee!”
“My name is Brylee Shumack and I am 9-years-old,” the girl's letter reads. "I am from N.C. If I could vote I would vote for you.
“People say that’s because my mommy is voting for you,” she adds. "But I am smart. Hillary is a bad lady and if you are president I hope you put her in jail. Can meet you one day!”
Shumack also says she doesn't trust news reports about Trump, the Republican presidential nominee.
“I don’t believe everything I see on TV!” the girl adds in a postscript alongside a large, hand-drawn smiley face.

Donald Trump's campaign is stepping up its rhetoric against Clinton amid accusations from women who say the GOP nominee groped and kissed them without consent. Trump has tried to put the spotlight back on Clinton, bringing up the controversy over her use of a private email server when she was secretary of State.
Trump on Wednesday said Clinton deserves jail time for deleting tens of thousands of emails from the server.
“This corruption is just one more reason that I will ask my attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor, and furthermore, we’re going to investigate this phony investigation,” he said during a rally in Lakeland, Fla., referencing the FBI’s decision not to recommend criminal charges against Clinton.
“After getting the subpoena to give over your emails and lots of other things, she deleted the emails,” Trump said. "She has to go to jail.”
FBI Director James Comey called Clinton’s handling of classified material at the State Department “extremely careless” in July when announcing the agency’s findings, but he said there was no proof of criminal behavior.
Trump’s supporters frequently chant “lock her up” when Clinton or her emails are mentioned at campaign events.
