Trump met with ‘lock him up’ chants during Veterans Day Parade | The Independent

Protesters chanted “lock him up” as Donald Trump gave a speech to mark Veterans Day in Madison Square Park in central New York.

Several dozen people holding banners reading “Traitor, criminal, lock him up!”, “Sexist in chief” and “Impeach Trump” had gathered close to Madison Square Park in downtown Manhattan ahead of his speech.

The chants are an echo of those at Trump’s own rallies–“Lock her up”– Trump and his supporters have called for 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to go to jail for the use of a private email server while she was serving as Secretary of State. The State Department found last month that there was no deliberate mishandling of classified information by Mrs Clinton or her team, but Mr Trump was able to weaponise the story during his campaign and after to rally his supporters.
