Donald Trump, who was twice impeached, four times indicted, and 91 times accused, says he will lock up his political enemies if he is president again.
In an interview on Tuesday, the rightwing broadcaster Glenn Beck raised Trump’s famous campaign trail vow to “lock up” Hillary Clinton, his opponent in 2016, a promise Trump did not fulfill in office.

Trump is 77 years old and is accused of 91 crimes under four indictments, including retaining confidential material, paying hush money to an adult film star, and subverting elections. He claims to be a victim of political persecution and denies any involvement. The trials for these indictments are planned for next year.
