Bill Clinton Endorses Donald Trump… Or So The Latter Thinks So
Controversial Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump never fails to get attention whenever and wherever he demands it. The real estate mogul took to Instagram to post a video which he touts is an endorsement coming from former president Bill Clinton, the husband of his presidential rival Hillary Clinton.Advertisement
“An endorsement from Bill,” Trump’s caption reads. He also promoted the video on Twitter, saying that Clinton wants to “Make America Great Again,” referencing his campaign log line.
The video that Trump posted is a compilation of clips of Clinton’s different media interviews, including one with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“He’s a master brander,” Clinton said in one clip. “And he’s the most interesting character out there. And there is a, a macho appeal to saying I’m just sick of nothing happening, I make things happen, vote for me,” Clinton continued.
There was also a clip where Clinton said, “I like him,” pertaining to Trump. Clinton was also shown in one clip saying that Trump “has been uncommonly nice to Hillary and me.”
But of course, the video posted by Trump painted a completely different picture of the sour relationship they have. In an interview with CNN, Trump said that Hillary Clinton was “perhaps the worst secretary of state in history.”
Clinton hit him back by saying that Trump is an expert in branding where “you can be fact-free.” Clinton acknowledged the possibility that Trump might get the nomination, but “at some point you also have to say what are you going to do. You can’t just spend all your time saying everything everybody else did was wrong and they were all doofuses.”
