Trump Insists He Has No Interest In Prosecuting Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump has disappointed his followers after insisting Friday he doesn’t care about prosecuting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, after attendees at his rally chanted “lock her up.”

After the chants started at the President-elect’s post-election “thank you” rally in Michigan, he responded,
“That plays great before the election — now we don’t care, right?”

During the presidential campaign, Trump pledged to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Trump told Clinton during a debate that if he were president, “you’d be in jail.”

However, once Trump became President-elect, he said he wouldn’t recommend prosecution of Clinton.He also said the idea of prosecuting Clinton is “just not something I feel very strongly about.”
