The president recalled his 2016 run against "crooked Hillary" during his Middletown, Pennsylvania rally on Saturday night.

As Trump started discussing going head-to-head with Clinton, the crowd chanted "lock her up!"

Trump smugly replied, grinning, "I agree."

"I used to say, 'Now, now, now, we won. Don't do it'," he continued. "I try and stop it, but now — She's crazy. Bill is stone-cold afraid of her."

Earlier this week, Clinton said Trump should not be allowed to "steal the election" and called his behavior "blatantly authoritarian."

The former secretary of state shared a video on Wednesday of Trump speaking to reporters, saying the Supreme Court needs to have nine justices ahead of Election Day on November 3.

Clinton said in response: "The only remedy for this blatantly authoritarian behavior is for voters to turn out for Biden-Harris in such overwhelming numbers that Trump & the GOP can't steal the election."

Trump has repeatedly claimed that the 2020 election against Democratic nominee Joe Biden is “rigged.”

He frequently rails against mail-in voting, claiming it’s ripe with widespread fraud, but officials have said there’s a lack of any evidence to prove that.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election, recently advised Biden not to concede this fall.

"Do not concede under any circumstance because I believe the other side is going to cheat and sneak and try everything they possibly can," she said in a recent interview. 

Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, added: "He'll be stacking sandbags around in the White House.

"It's very important to keep in mind that beneath all these big questions you are asking [is] just Donald Trump's proven ability to manipulate the psyche of the people that he is trying to scare the hell out of.

"Now, this is a person who says, 'OK, I can't win on my own, but people will believe whatever I tell them as long as it's bad'."
