President Donald Trump claimed that former Vice President Joe Biden is lucky to still be a free man, claiming that he knows people that “would’ve had him locked up five weeks ago.”
Speaking at a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona on Monday, Trump began by telling the crowd that Biden was hiding in his basement talking to lawyers.
“He’s gonna stay in the basement all day,” Trump falsely told the crowd. “But I think today he’s staying in the basement to talk to his lawyers. They caught him cold. They caught him cold.”
The crowd responded by chanting “Lock him up! Lock him up!”
“I tell you something, I mean this too, he is lucky that we have in our country and they don’t appreciate a wonderful human being and the most fair attorney general of the United States cuz I know people that would’ve had him locked up five weeks ago,” Trump said.
“Bill Barr is a very nice man and a very fair man. And they have no idea because someone else would have taken that thing and all that crap and corruption – he’s been a corrupt political for a long time this guy. And in many ways, it doesn’t make some of us happy,” Trump added.
"Lock him up!" chants for Joe Biden are a new staple of Trump rallies.
