Trump wants America to follow in Britain’s footsteps
Donald Trump wants Americans to follow Britain’s lead and take command of their own destiny.
In an economic address Tuesday in Monessen, Pa., the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said it was time for the American people to “take back their future” as British people did by voting to exit the European Union.
“Our friends in Britain recently voted to take back control of their economy, politics and borders,” he said.
“I was on the right side of that issue — with the people — while Hillary, as always, stood with the elites, and both she and President Obama” advocated for the losing side.
The mogul rolled out a revised slogan — “Make America Wealthy Again” — and blamed globalization for costing the United States millions of jobs that “totally wiped out our middle class.”
Trump pledged to reverse “the worst legacies of the Clinton years.”
He cited the North America Free Trade Agreement signed by President Bill Clinton and China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization during the Clinton administration.
