At President Donald Trump’s packed Nevada rally on Sunday, the excited crowd chanted “lock him up” after the president talked about former President Barack Obama being caught spying on the 2016 Trump campaign.
Trump Rally Criticizes Obama
During his Henderson, Nevada rally, the president discussed how Obama “got caught spying on my campaign.”
“He got caught,” Trump continued. “We have him cold, now let’s see what happens.”

He was referring to an investigation that Obama allegedly conduction to look into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia in 2016. Many Republicans believe that this was an attempt to sink Trump’s presidency.
In 2016 the phrase “lock her up” become popular among trump supporters which referred to the crimes Hillary Clinton committed when she destroyed evidence and deleted 33,000 emails.
The crowd’s chant of “lock him up” was a play on the Clinton phrase.
Is Justice Coming?
Many conservatives are hopeful that justice will prevail in the coming years and Obama is on the list of people that might receive more scrutiny.
“Treason. Treason. It’s treason,” Trump told CBN News in June.
“They’d been spying on my campaign,” the president added. “Turned out I was right. Let’s see what happens to them now.”
The Democrats have something the Republicans don’t have – the ability to lie and fight until they get their way.
Republicans, he said, are not as effective as Democrats. “They don’t fight to win,” Trump said. “They have better policy, but they don’t have that vicious streak.”
“If this was reversed, they would be in jail for two years already, and it would be a 50-year term for treason,” he continued.
Democrat’s Double Standards
For instance, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was caught visiting a hair salon without a mask. This went against her own state’s tyrannical lockdown policy and in complete contrast of her message to Americans to always wear masks.
Will Democrats such as Obama finally see justice? Only time will tell.
