Trump Softens on “Hillary for Prison”


Has the media barrage softened Donald Trump already?

In a recent interview, Trump played down his past hard-edged rhetoric towards Hillary and the Clinton Foundation.

Donald Trump hinted Sunday night that he may not set up a special prosecutor to seek charges against Hillary Clinton, and instead said he wants more time to think about it.

“I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them,” he said when pressed on the question during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday night. “They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them.”

When asked the first time, Trump said, “I’m going to think about it.”

But his cautious answer seems to be a clear hint that his stance might be changing from less than a week ago, when he was leading rallies as an underdog candidate in which crowds routinely chanted, “Lock her up!” whenever he mentioned Clinton.

It seems far fetched to say President Trump would pardon the Clinton’s but it’s beginning to look like a President trump will be much more measured in his responses than the candidate and he’ll defer to the governing elites when it comes to prosecutions.

    Is truthfulness too much to ask from a politician? My dad told me that if your word wasn’t good, then you weren’t good. If you SAY that you are going to do something, then DO IT. Drain the swamp, or become an alligator (or a snake.)

    If the Clintons are not prosecuted for the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, other corrupt foundations will grow and multiply. It is illegal for a campaign to accept donations from foreign sources and yet Hillary bypassed this law by funneling the money through the Clinton Foundation. As Secretary of State Hillary took favorable actions for foreign interests and the beneficiaries donated large amounts to the Clinton Foundation and paid lavish amounts for speeches by Bill Clinton. Do we have one set of laws for Hillary Clinton and another set for everybody else? A person I know was sent to prison for 10 years and the judge said the law was black and white and she said she had no discretion. For Hillary the law is black and white yet the FBI so far has changed the wording of the law without having that authority.

    President Trump, don’t go back on your promises already. You promised you would lock her up, now do it. If anybody ever deserved it she does! These are NOT good people!
