Trump Says Clinton Is a Boring Criminal Who Belongs in Jail

"Folks, honestly, she's guilty as hell," the presumptive Republican nominee said at a chaotic California event.

Donald Trump was especially fired up at his San Jose, California, rally Thursday, and the presumptive GOP presidential nominee wasn't alone: Just outside, protesters held up Mexican flags, burned Make America Great Again hats, and tussled with his supporters as the event wore on.

The candidate was on a warpath over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's big foreign policy speech, wherein she labeled the presumptive Republican nominee utterly dangerous to the American people and "temperamentally unfit" for the presidency.


Firing back in classic Trump form, the GOP contender asked his followers, "And remember I said I was a counter-puncher? I am. After what she said about me today and her phony speech. That was a phony speech. That was a Donald Trump hit job. I will say this. Hillary Clinton has to go to jail. She has to go to jail."

Trump added, "Folks, honestly, she's guilty as hell," referring to the ongoing FBI probe of Clinton's using a private email server while serving secretary of state in the Obama administration.

The candidate didn't relent, to his fans' delight. "She's a liar. She made up my foreign policy! She said, 'Donald Trump is going to do this'; I never said that. And, 'Donald Trump is going to do that.' A friend of mine was in the room and said, 'You never said you were going to do that.' I said that's right—she makes it up. She's a bad person."


Trump can't be too bitter—he's supposedly "doing well with Latinos," as he suggested during the San Jose rally, and Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who at one point basically dismissed the former reality star as a racist, endorsed him on Thursday.
