Donald Trump told a huge crowd Friday night that Hillary Clinton is so heavily protected by the Justice Department that she wouldn’t be punished for shooting someone with thousands of witnesses.
As attendees at Trump’s event in Pensacola, Fla., chanted “lock her up,” a familiar refrain at Trump rallies, the GOP nominee argued that getting out of prosecution was the “single greatest achievement of Hillary Clinton.”
“We’re going to do better than lock her up, we’re going to win on Nov. 8,” Trump said.
“Because she’s being so protected, she could walk into this arena right now and shoot someone with 20,000 people watching, right smack in the middle of the heart, and she wouldn’t be prosecuted. OK? That’s what’s happened. That’s what’s happened to our country.”
The Justice Department declined to indict Clinton after an investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of State.
While the GOP nominee has been more constrained over the past month by the use of a TelePrompTer, his Friday night rally in deep-red Pensacola, Fla., provided a glimpse of the old Donald Trump, complete with a large, rowdy crowd, and frequent off-script attacks on his Democratic rival — the shooting comment was improvised.
Trump went hard after Clinton, bashing her major decisions as secretary of State, her email server controversy and her foundation and claiming she is unfit for the Oval Office.
“Her policies have produced only death, destruction and not diplomacy, she’s trigger happy,” Trump said before turning away from the prompter to add off-script: “Personally I think she’s an unstable person.”
He sought to cast Clinton as a loser, blasting “the endless wars that have defined Hillary Clinton’s career” and declaring that she “never wins.”
