Former President Bill Clinton slammed Donald Trump’s promise to make America Great Again as an impossible feat, akin to just a joke.
“Saying I’d like to make America great again is like me saying I’d like to be 20 again,” Clinton said with a sneer and a laugh.
He said it bothers him that older people are supporting “Hillary’s opponent.” Clinton was campaigning for his wife Hillary in Orlando, and said Trump’s message to “Make America Great Again” is racist and insinuated that it’s just a backwards idea.
“That message — I’ll give you America great again — “If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you? It means 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. “What Hillary wants to do is take the totem pole down and let us all go forward together!”
Clinton claimed Trump was only lying to blue collar workers to get their votes, saying, “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.”
Breitbart reported that Clinton criticized white working voters from West Virginia, calling them “angry people walking around wearing Trump shirts.”
He said coal production had already peaked, and America’s resources must be changed to solar panels and windmills to prevent global warming.
His answer to the blue collar workers from Virginia and Kentucky who were “hurt” was that they needed more help from the federal government.
