Trump tweets out image calling for Obama, Hillary, and other political opponents to be jailed for ‘treason’

This Wednesday morning, President Trump shared an image calling for his political opponents to be put on trial and sentenced to prison. The image depicts people such as Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Huma Abedin, Robert Mueller, and others behind bars with the words, “Now that Russia Collusion is a lie, when do the trials for treason begin?” emblazoned across the top.

At The Hill points out, some of the people depicted in the image were the recipients of mailed explosives sent out by Cesar Sayoc last month.

The tweet was originally shared by a Trump fan account called “The Trump Train” and later retweeted by Trump himself.

Trump’s sharing of the image comes on the heels of news reports suggesting that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia is entering into its final stages.

This past Monday, Trump slammed Mueller as a “conflicted prosecutor gone rogue” after news broke that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort violated his plea agreement by lying to federal prosecutors.

On Wednesday, Trump also shared tweets from The Trump Train that bashed CNN and “illegals.”

Trump also retweeted a tweet from a fake Vice President Mike Pence account that said, “I’m thankful for every day Hillary Clinton is not President.” As HuffPost points out, the account changed its name to “VP Fan” after Trump retweeted it.
