Hillary Clinton: Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ Is a White Nationalist Slogan
Maybe she should discuss this phrase with two Democratic presidents who also used it, as an opinion piece points out
Two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton claims that white nationalists view the phrase Make America Great Again as a racist slogan.
Clinton on Tuesday tweeted out a Huffington Post story, which linked the Quebec City mosque terrorist — who wore the hat one time in a social media post — and other “prominent European white nationalists” to supporters of President Donald Trump.
MAGA, according to the article, “has become more than a U.S. political slogan”; the piece also claims MAGA has become a slogan for “other white nationalist, radical right and anti-immigrant extremists all over the world.”
Hillary Clinton, who already views Trump’s supporters as “deplorables,” couldn’t help but figuratively nod in agreement.
“The white nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan,” she declared.

Funny they should cite a terrorist who once wore the hat and painted all extremists as MAGA supporters when they spent years telling the American people there was no link between radical Islamic extremism and a multitude of terror attacks.
Now, suddenly, every MAGA hat wearer is a racist.
Democrat opposition to the phrase has been palpable for some time. Why?
Because Democrats don’t want America to return to prominence after Barack Obama destroyed the nation’s credibility for eight years.
Or — because they don’t view it as great now or ever:
- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) suggested that the current state of America is “garbage.”
- Obama’s former attorney general, Eric Holder, contends that America has never been great.
- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo concurs.
- Bernie Sanders believes “there is something fundamentally immoral and wrong about [America].”
And Hillary believes half the nation is “deplorable.”
She might want to discuss this with a few other presidents who used MAGA. While some white nationalists have used the slogan, some other prominent Americans have as well — and nobody accused them of being racists.
Former President Jimmy Carter used some combination of the phrase repeatedly during his victory speech in 1976.
“It’s time to tap the tremendous strength and vitality and idealism and hope and patriotism and a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood in this country to a unified nation to make it great once again,” Carter urged.
“Let’s make America great again” was used in Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign.
And one other former president used the phrase that Hillary now says is associated with white nationalism: Bill Clinton.

“Together we can make America great again …”
Will Hillary have a deep discussion with her “white nationalist” husband now?
