Lock her up?': Trump hasn't really thought about it

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, President-elect Donald Trump discussed one of his biggest campaign promises, assigning a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton and the private email server she used during her tenure as secretary of state.

Although Trump's supporters have been fervently in favor of Trump leading a new investigation into Clinton, with many furiously chanting, "Lock her up," during campaign rallies, Trump had a different tone during his Friday interview.

When asked if he intended to follow through on the Clinton investigation he promised, Trump said, "It's not something I've given a lot of thought because I want to solve health care, jobs, border control, tax reform."

Trump himself announced in October during the second presidential debate that he would assign a special prosecutor to look into Clinton's emails and told Clinton she'd "be in jail" if he became president, a comment that some deemed the biggest moment of the debate.

After a campaign full of inflammatory speech, Trump has alternated his usual rhetoric with a noticeably softer tone since winning the presidential election.  When asked about the emotional protesters following his victory, Trump replied, "I want a country that loves each other."

Trump had previously stated on his Twitter account that the protests were "very unfair."
