President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., on Sunday shared an Instagram post showing off an AR-15 with a depiction of Hillary Clinton behind bars on the magazine clip.
Trump Jr. posted three photos of the gun, with the caption “Nice day at the range. @rarebreedfirearms and @spikes_tactical adding a little extra awesome to my AR and that mag…”
President Trump and his supporters routinely chant “lock her up” at rallies when Hillary Clinton’s name is mentioned.
The word “CRUSADER” can be seen etched onto the top part of the weapon. An etching of the Jerusalem cross can also be seen near the trigger of the weapon.
In today’s totally normal news for a democracy, the president’s son—who a significant percentage of Republicans favor as his successor—posted photos of himself shooting a gun featuring an image of a crusader’s cross & his father’s former opponent in jail. So insane & appalling. pic.twitter.com/zYvHnOZL6Z

Don Jr posted photos of himself brandishing a modified assault rifle with CRUSADER etched on it, lower receiver modelled after a medieval Crusader hemet & mag printed with Hillary's face.
Crusader imagery on weapons & propaganda has been used by Far-Right terrorists since Breivik pic.twitter.com/hLdgUAL7au
