During the general election campaign, Donald Trump told his supporters time and time again that he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton’s actions regarding Emailgate. Chants of “Lock her up! Lock her up!” could be heard a Trump rallies. Trump even told Hillary during a debate, “Because you’d be in jail” to raucous response.
The general election is now over and Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in an astonishing victory that the pollsters never saw coming. So, will President-elect Trump make good on his promise to do what he can to lock her up due to the massive corruption that she has evaded consequences for under an Obama regime. According to President-elect Trump’s campaign manager, the answer is a resounding no.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday morning, Conway revealed that President-elect Trump, in a break from promises by candidate Trump, has no intention to pursue any charges against Hillary Clinton because “she’s been through enough.”
“I think when the President-elect, who’s also the head of your party, tells you before he’s even inaugurated that he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content” to fellow Republicans.”
Conway said that Hillary “still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy.” However, rather than Trump appointing that special prosecutor that he said he would at the second debate, he wants to help her heal.
“If Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing to do.”
From “lock her up” to “help her heal?” Yeah, that second message wouldn’t have gone over well while Trump was campaigning.
In her reiteration that Trump will not prosecute Hillary, she added that President Trump’s words and actions may not “sound like the campaign.”
“Look, I think he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the President of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign are not among them.”
Last week Jesse Jackson, known for his divisiveness and racial arsonist techniques, called for President Obama to pardon Hillary Clinton, though she hasn’t been charged with anything, in order to protect her. Given this new stance by Donald Trump, it looks like a pardoning of Clinton, who Trump referred to during the campaign as “Crooked Hillary,” or “Crooked” for short, will not be necessary.
How will Trump’s ardent supporters respond to this stunning news and surprising shift from a campaign promise that may have helped drive people to the polls?
