CAMPAIGN/HILLARY: “President Donald Trump’s mere mention of Hillary Clinton’s now infamous ‘deplorables’ remark from the 2016 campaign sent the crowd at CPAC into a frenzy on Friday morning.
Chants of ‘lock her up’ filled the auditorium at the Gaylord Convention Center after the president again defended his voters as ‘great Americans’ against Clinton who during the presidential election said ‘half’ of them are in what she called a ‘basket of deplorables’
‘People came to vote and the media said ‘where are they coming from?’ These are hardworking great, great Americans. These are unbelievable people who have not been treated fairly. Hillary called them deplorable, they’re not deplorable,” said Trump.
As the conservative conference crowd then began chanting ‘lock her up,’ the president paused, shook his head, and seemed to gesture for the audience to settle down.”
