Lock Trump Up Video Viewed by Over 1 Million People

Former U.S. President Donald Trump leaves Trump Tower to meet with New York Attorney General Letitia James for a civil investigation on August 10, 2022 in New York City. A video showing Trump saying that

A video calling for former President Donald Trump to be “locked up” has been viewed more than 1 million times.

The video was posted to the Meidas Touch Twitter feed on Wednesday. According to the page, Meidas Touch was created with the intent of “protecting American democracy, defeating Trumpism and holding Republicans accountable.”

The video highlighted words from some of Trump’s previous speeches regarding classified documents.

The video comes after Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida was raided by the FBI in search of classified documents.

Following the raid, Trump criticized the FBI and said that Americans are angry about what he has called a “witch hunt.”

The video began with a clip that has gone viral on social media in recent days. In August 2016, during Trump’s presidential campaign, he spoke about how he would protect classified information.

“On political corruption, we are going to restore honor to our government,” Trump said. “In my administration, I am going to enforce all laws concerning the protection of classified information. No one will be above the law.”

The Meidas Touch video then cut to a news report discussing the FBI’s findings regarding the Mar-a-Lago raid.

The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was intended to recover Donald Trump’s personal “stash” of hidden documents, two high-level U.S. intelligence officials previously told Newsweek.

To justify the unprecedented raid on a former president’s residence and protect the source who revealed the existence of Trump’s private hoard, agents went into Trump’s residence on the pretext that they were seeking all government documents, says one official who has been involved in the investigation.

But the true target was this private stash, which Justice Department officials feared Donald Trump might weaponize.

“They collected everything that rightfully belonged to the U.S. government but the true target was these documents that Trump had been collecting since early in his administration,” says the source, who was granted anonymity to discuss sensitive issues.

Meidas Touch also showed clips of Trump criticizing former presidential candidate Hilary Clinton from July 2016.

“This was not just extreme carelessness with classified material, which is still totally disqualifying, this is calculated, deliberate premeditated misconduct,” Trump said during the campaign speech.

The video then cut to more news stories about the raid on Trump’s home and the significance of the documents that were discovered there.

The video then cut back to Trump during his speech regarding Clinton and said people had been lying as part of a cover-up.

It then showed pundits who have spoken on news channels since the raid, defending Trump’s actions and condemning the FBI.

The video closed with a clip of Trump at a rally where the crowd appears to be chanting “lock him up”. That clip appears to be taken from a rally in Arizona in 2020 as Trump spoke about his-then political opponent Joe Biden during his election campaign.

Newsweek has reached out to Meidas Touch and Donald Trump’s office for comment.
