‘Lock her up’ chant breaks out at Trump rally

After President Trump mentioned 2016 rival Hillary Clinton at a reelection campaign rally in Cincinnati, the crowd broke into a chant of “lock her up.”

Trump mentioned his former opponent and her use of the term “deplorable” to describe a segment of Trump supporters.

“Do you remember when Hillary used the word ‘deplorable’?” he said. “Deplorable was not a good day for Hillary. Crooked Hillary. She is a crooked one,” he said, adding, “She is crooked.”

After this, the crowd began to chant “lock her up,” a refrain that supporters of the president commonly used during the 2016 election.

Trump spoke on Thursday night to the crowd in Cincinnati just one day after the 2020 Democratic debates in which hopefuls vied for the chance to challenge him in the general election.
