Donald Trump Jr. is proud to have inspired a 9 year old to say, “Hillary is a bad lady… I hope you put her in jail.”

Such an awesome letter from a 9 year old supporter who came to one of my NC rallies yesterday.… https://t.co/5hGCXxCe31

A crop of the letter:
A 9 year old didn’t just come up with “put her in jail” – that’s something a kid hears and repeats. Donald Trump said it over and over again on national TV and now kids think this is okay.
During the second presidential debate, Donald Trump said to Hillary Clinton’s face that he was going to put her in jail.
“I hate to say it, but if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” Trump said to Clinton.
Clinton wasn’t impressed by Donald Trump’s temperament and that caused him to spew, like an angry child, ” — Because you’d be in jail!”
Donald Trump’s supporters think this was a big score on Trump’s side, but that’s because they don’t value the basic freedoms and liberty that built this country.
Jailing political opponents is something dictators like Stalin and Hitler did and something Vladimir Putin is accused of doing, not something the president of the United States does.
This is what Donald Trump is doing to our children, and the Republican Party is endorsing, enabling and supporting.
