Two-time loser Hillary Clinton recently accused President Donald Trump of invoking white nationalism with his infamous slogan “Make America Great Again.”
Clinton expressed this view when she recently tweeted out a Huffington Post article that made a connection between Trump supporters and the Quebec City mosque terrorist as well as other prominent European White Nationalists.
According to the article, the phrase termed as “MAGA” is no longer a purely political slogan. Rather, it has become a slogan for anti-immigrant extremists, white nationalists, and other radical groups. Clinton tweeted, “the white nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan.”
The phrase “MAGA” has evolved to the point where anyone that wears a hat with the phrase is normally assumed to be a racist.
Indeed, many Democrats dislike the slogan because they think America was never great to begin with. Beyond Clinton’s tweet, she also famously disenfranchised half of Trump’s supporters when she referred to them as a “basket of deplorables” during the runup to the 2016 American presidential election.
But some other prominent Americans have used the MAGA slogan in the past without being accused of racism. Former President Jimmy Carter, for example, used the slogan during his victory speech in 1976.
The slogan was also used in Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign during 1980. Most ironic, however, is that former President Bill Clinton used the phrase on multiple occasions during his presidential tenure. Perhaps Hillary Clinton should ask her husband as well as Jimmy Carter before pointing fingers at President Trump.
