President Donald Trump told a rally crowd in Macon, Georgia, on Friday: “Lock up the Bidens.”
Trump was referring to reports that then-Vice President Joe Biden, his Democratic opponent, met with Chinese and Ukrainian business figures allegedly paying his son, Hunter Biden, to facilitate introductions to senior U.S. officials.
The “lock her up” chant was among the more controversial features of Trump rallies in the 2016 presidential campaign, referring to claims that Democratic Party rival Hillary Clinton had broken the law by using an illicit private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.
