The only difference: Trump said this would happen if Hillary Clinton were elected president.
Meyers played clips Tuesday night of Trump railing against Clinton’s supposed mishandling of classified information and boasting to supporters that he would never put the country in such a situation.
“If Hillary Clinton were elected, she would be under protracted criminal investigation likely followed by the trial of a sitting president,” Trump told a crowd in October 2016. “The investigation will last for years, nothing will get done, government will grind to a halt and our country will continue to suffer.”
“It’s amazing ― the only thing he got wrong was the president’s name,” Meyers joked.
