In one of the best speeches Trump has given to date, he countered Hillary Clinton’s “”I’m with her” slogan with a brilliant rebuttal of his own. In an absolutely scathing criticism of Hillary Clinton, Trump cites her bad judgment, volatile temperament and corrupt practices involving overseas donations.
The monstrous Clinton campaign rapid response team is already busy trying to deploy any and all anti-Trump messaging to cloud this speech. I have no doubt we will see a series of mediocre tweets from the Clinton staff today as they brainstorm in a conference room deep in their campaign stronghold while scanning public opinion data.
Here is an excerpt from Trumps speech this morning that outlines some of his best phrases:
The choice in this election is a choice between taking our government back from the special interests, or surrendering our last scrap of independence to their total and complete control.
Those are the stakes.
Hillary Clinton wants to be President. But she doesn’t have the temperament, or, as Bernie Sanders’ said, the judgement, to be president.
She believes she is entitled to the office.
Her campaign slogan is “I’m with her.”
You know what my response to that is? I’m with you: the American people.
She thinks it’s all about her.
I know it’s all about you – I know it’s all about making America Great Again for All Americans.
Our country lost its way when we stopped putting the American people first.
We got here because we switched from a policy of Americanism – focusing on what’s good for America’s middle class – to a policy of globalism, focusing on how to make money for large corporations who can move their wealth and workers to foreign countries all to the detriment of the American worker and the American economy.
We reward companies for off-shoring, and we punish companies for doing business in America and keeping our workers employed.
This is not a rising tide that lifts all boats.
This is a wave of globalization that wipes out our middle class and our jobs.
Donald Trump – June 22, 2016
