President Trump prompted a rally chant of “lock her up” aimed at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday night as he spoke of her “mumbling” behind him during his State of the Union address.
The crowd began chanting “lock her up,” a barb normally aimed at Hillary Clinton. The president also reveled in his “full, complete, absolute and total acquittal” in his impeachment trial in the Senate last week. He said Democrats’ impeachment effort “utterly backfired.”
“We have the highest poll numbers we’ve ever had. Thank you, Nancy,” Mr. Trump said.
Speaking to boisterous campaign supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire, Mr. Trump said the speaker’s behavior last week was “very distracting.” “I’m talking and … somebody behind me was mumbling terribly … very distracting,” Mr. Trump said.
President Trump thanked Nancy Pelosi for giving Republicans the highest poll number since 2005. – “New polling by Gallup reveals that President Trump’s approval rating is at an all-time high. Trump’s job approval rating now sits at 49 percent, with a 94 percent approval rating among Republicans and a 42 percent rating with independents, both numbers being highs for Trump’s presidency. The GOP itself is also seeing a significant boost.”
