Government Employees Chant “Lock Him Up,” Referring to Trump
NTK Network published a video of a government worker union rally.
At the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) #RedforFeds rally in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, union members began chanting ‘lock him up,” referring to President Donald Trump.
The AFGE is the largest federal employee union, representing 700,000 federal and D.C. government workers.
During Rep. Gerry Connolly’s (D-VA) remarks, he bashed the Trump administration for its treatment of federal employees.
“But there’s a new day coming, my friends. When we win back the majority this November, we’re going to have hearings, alright?” Connolly said. “And we’re going to call to account members of the Trump administration, and haul their asses before our committee.”
At this statement, the crowd began chanting “lock him up, lock him up.”
‘I’m not going to play Jeff Sessions, but if I did, I’d agree with you. Give it time, give it time, and they’ll be locked up,” Connolly said.
Other speakers at the #RedforFeds rally included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
