Donald Trump suggested he may yet lock up Hillary Clinton and smeared immigrants as violent murderers.
He said this during a nearly 90-minute-long speech he delivered in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania on Thursday night.
When Trump mentioned Clinton, the crowd broke out in “lock her up!” chants. Trump responded by saying, “Some things just take a little bit longer.” He then complained that his Justice Department “only wants to go after Republicans. You look at the kind of criminal actions and crime — they only want to go after the Republicans.”
Trump focused much of his speech at Thursday’s campaign-style rally on immigration, touting his border wall and taking his familiar fearmongering about supposedly criminal immigrants to the extreme.
Trump then lied about the wall, falsely claiming “we’re building it.” In reality, Trump hasn’t received any money to build the structure, which he promised during his campaign that Mexico would fund.
Alluding to a possible shut down, Trump said “we are going to start to get very nasty over the wall.”
