And they applauded.
President-elect Donald Trump all but acknowledged that his threat to imprison Hillary Clinton for using a private email server during her time as secretary of state was simply an appeal to win voters.
The pronouncement came as his supporters jeered at a reference to Hillary Clinton and began chanting “lock her up, lock her up”...
“No, it’s okay. Forget it. That plays great before the election. Now, we don’t care, right?”
Here is the video of tonight's rally where Trump admits he lied...

Trump's supporters have made it clear that it would be a bad mistake for him back away from the promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton as seen in a HuffPost/YouGov survey where nearly 80 percent of those asked said that it’s “very important” or at least “somewhat important” to them that Trump investigate and jail Clinton.
