Bill Clinton Rages Against Donald Trump’s Promise to ‘Make America Great Again’
Former President Bill Clinton ridiculed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for his slogan “Make America Great Again” suggesting that it was a false promise to American voters and racially motivated.
“That message, I’ll give you America great again — If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means,” Clinton said.
The former president indicated that Trump’s campaign slogan signaled that he would make white people more culturally dominate over other races in the country.
“What it means is I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and I’ll move you back up the social totem pole and other people down,” Clinton said.
Clinton insisted that Trump was only hurting blue collar workers, suggesting the Republican candidate was only cynically lying to get their votes.
“I get it … that’s my culture,” he said. “And I have watched more working class white people manipulated all my life. People rubbing salt into their wounds instead of bandaging their wounds.”
Clinton also suggested that Trump’s vow to make America great again was a false promise.
“Saying I’d like to Make America Great again is like me saying I’d like to be 20 again,” Clinton said.
