It appears that Donald Trump has a knack for coining catch phrases, not just pegging political opponents with a nickname, but also for rallying cries against them. During the RNC speeches last week, besides the booing of Ted Cruz, attendees broke out in a chant regarding Hillary Clinton, “Lock her up!”
Donald Trump was delivering a speech at the VFW in Charlotte, North Carolina today and pledged better health care for veterans. This is the same VFW that Hillary Clinton visited last week, but she received a less warm of a welcome. It was reported that attendees planned to walk out when she took the stage, but their commander requested that everyone remain polite. Although they did remain courteous, Hillary did not receive the wild cheers that Trump did.
It’s really not surprising that Trump would be better received by veterans than Clinton since she represents the existing Obama administration that oversaw the numerous scandals plaguing the veteran’s healthcare services.
Breitbart News reports:
As Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Charlotte, North Carolina, the audience broke out in sporadic chants of “lock her up” in reference to presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who spoke at the VFW on Monday.
“Lock her up” chants as Trump addresses #VFWConvention. Trump: “And to think she was here yesterday, I guess she didn’t do very well.”

Campaign signs are banned from the #VFWConvention but calls to “lock her up” are occasionally being bellowed across the exhibit hall

“The other candidate in this race, crooked Hillary Clinton, […] has a much different view,” Trump told the VFW audience. “She recently said of the VA scandal that it isn’t as wide spread as it was reported to be,” he jabbed, saying it’s as if she’s trying to sweep it under the rug.
