Trump no longer interested in locking up Clinton, says : 'Now we don't care'

On Friday 9th December, 2016, Donald Trump said he
NO longer cares about prosecuting Democratic presidential
nominee Hillary Clinton, after attendees at his rally
chanted "lock her up."

He made this known 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?"

The chant "lock her up" was a common occurrence at
Trump's rallies while he was running for president.

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. Despite the fact that FBI director James Comey
recommended over the summer against criminal charges
for Clinton for the server use, 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, whom he
told New York Times reporters has "suffered greatly."

He also said the idea of prosecuting Clinton is "just not
something I feel very strongly about."
