    "lock her up": expanding Trump's base or not?

    Obama's theme chant was "yes we can". Trump's is "lock her up". Your thoughts. Personally, in the rare instances I can tolerate Trump and his scratchy gutter political tone, once I hear the chant "lock her up", I'm done. Do you think Trump expands his base by allowing this?

    No... The whole "lock her up" thing appeals directly to the same people who have supported Trump for the past several months. No one on the fence will be swayed by that particular rallying cry.

    and Trump is now ignoring the latest FBI update and continuing to stoke anger and resentment among his supporters. This just has to be said. The man is insane. I heard this with my own ears. His exact words were that the FBI "rank and file will not allow Hillary Clinton to get away with her crimes". Trump knows that Comey just reaffirmed his July assessment of the case. We have Guilliani and others in the Trump campaign, that appear to have had advanced notice of Comey's letter to congress 9 days ago. The FBI is leaking like a sieve in the interim. So, is the implication here that Trump is inciting "rank and file" insurrection within the FBI - or what?

    The general feeling is that Hillary is a crook.

    She is not well liked.

    Trump however should stick with make America great again. Much better slogan.

    it's too late. Trump is stuck with the "lock her up" slogan. But, there's just one question I've been meaning to ask folks, like you, that think Hillary Clinton is so corrupt. If it's true. If she is really that corrupt. Why would Trump risk pissing her off with his "lock her up" chant? If elected, she will become the most powerful woman in the world. According to Trump, she's been getting away with her criminal behavior her entire adult life. So, just being a little realistic here. Who do you see coming out ahead in this scenario? Our CIC and President of these United States? Or, some orange haired freak cult leader like Trump?

    What's she going to do to him actually, put him under another IRS audit?

    Outside of going to war presidents actually have very little power. I suppose she could send a few B-52's to bomb his house but that's about it.

    That's the general feeling among a large bloc of Republican voters.

    The rest of the world? Not so much.
