US Election Is Rigged, Clinton should be Prosecuted, Jailed: Donald Trump

Donald Trump kept up his unprecedentedly aggressive campaign rhetoric Saturday, saying opponent Hillary Clinton should be in jail and that the media is trying to "rig" the election by reporting on numerous women who have accused him of unwanted sexual advances.

"We can't let them get away with this, folks," Trump told a crowd in Portsmouth, N.H., echoing that this "looks like a rigged election."

In the days since a parade of women began coming forward to claim Trump touched them inappropriately, the Republican presidential nominee has called them liars and even criticized their looks. At one point Saturday, Trump described one of his accusers as "this crazy woman on the airplane."

Trump has also amped up his allegations against Clinton over contributions to the Clinton Foundation and her private email system while in the State Department.

"Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted and gone to jail for what she did," Trump said at a second rally Saturday in Bangor, Maine, again denouncing "a totally rigged election."

As in New Hampshire, Trump followers cheered and chanted "lock her up!"

Four days before his third and final debate against Clinton, Trump again questioned his opponent's health and suggested she may have taken drugs to get "pumped up" during last week's face-off in St. Louis. He proposed a drug test before Wednesday's event in Las Vegas.

"Hillary Clinton should have been prosecuted and gone to jail for what she did, Trump said, again denouncing a totally rigged election."

Clinton supporters said Trump's talk about jail and rigged elections reflect a campaign that is imploding, and is now promoting conspiracy theories ginned up by right-wing media outlets.

After New Hampshire, Trump traveled to his second rally in Maine — a state that uses a unique system to award its four electoral votes. The statewide winner gets two electoral votes, while the candidate who gets the most votes in each of the state's congressional districts get one vote per district.

While Clinton leads statewide, Trump has led surveys in the congressional district that includes Bangor, where the nominee spoke Saturday.

Dan Shea, professor of government at Maine's Colby College, said he would be surprised if Trump keeps visiting Maine in pursuit of a single electoral vote, given the slippage he has seen in big states like Florida and North Carolina.

"He's got other fish to fry," Shea said, USA Today reported.
