Trump Drops Push For Clinton Prosecution: And His Supporters Have Reactedby

President-Elect Donald Trump ran a highly divisive election campaign that, ultimately worked for both the former real estate mogul and the Republican Party – not only did the candidate surge ahead of Hillary Clinton in the final vote thanks to the presence of the Electoral College, but the Republicans now have majority control over both houses of Congress – making 2016’s campaign a huge success. However, it’s a campaign that has enraptured media outlets, inspired many who feel under-represented, and has disgusted those in favor of a host of civil liberties. Trump’s campaign was also notable for a number of claims and avenues that he insinuated he would take once in office – notably, comments regarding building a wall on the US-Mexico border and pursuing the prosecution of ‘Crooked Hillary’ became almost catchphrases for his entire run.

However, since his win earlier this month, Trump has remained fairly muted in comparison to the bluster and rhetoric he became known for in the run-up to November. He has recently caused controversy for asserting that former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage would ‘do a great job’ as British Ambassador in the US – and he has also taken to Twitter to defend Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence after the statesman was subjected to booing while attending the musical, Hamilton, on Broadway earlier this month. The fallout from Trump’s election is largely what is filling newspaper headlines – but he has stepped back from one of the bigger messages of his campaign, an act which has resulted in disappointment and anger from some of his supporters.

Trump has advised the New York Post in conversation that he does not intend to pursue prosecution of Hillary Clinton in relation to her recent scandal involving email usage while Secretary of State – stating that the campaign was ‘vicious’, the President-Elect made it clear that he wanted to ‘move forward’ and that it was not in his interest to ‘hurt’ the Clinton family. For many who got behind Trump during the most vocal moments of his campaign, his new stance has come across rather jarring – particularly as chants of ‘lock her up’ were becoming commonplace from certain crowds attending his publicity rallies. A number of conservative media outlets and opinion platforms, too, are not particularly pleased with Trump’s retraction – and it will certainly remain to be seen if the new President follows through on his other key pledges from his memorable – and controversial election campaign.
