The chant broke out as Trump complained about Pelosi’s conduct during his State of the Union address last week.
“I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly. Mumbling,” Trump said, mocking Pelosi. “Very distracting.”
The crowd of thousands in Manchester coalesced into chants of “lock her up.” Trump stood at the podium nodding his head and mouthed the words “that’s true.”
“No, it was very distracting,” he added. “Im speaking and a woman is mumbling terribly behind me, angry.”

Tensions between Trump and Pelosi boiled over last week at the State of the Union. 
Pelosi reached out for a handshake after Trump handed her a copy of his prepared remarks, but the president appeared to ignore her. Throughout the speech, Pelosi avoided looking at the president and at times shook her head no as he spoke about health care and Social Security.
When Trump concluded his address, Pelosi picked up her copy of the prepared remarks and ripped them in half, a moment that dominated cable news in the aftermath of the speech.
