For decades, Democratic candidates ran their campaigns pitting Americans against Americans by stirring up racism and class warfare. This election is no different as President Bill Clinton said “Making America Great Again" is a racially charged slogan. He must have forgotten he used the same slogan many times while running for office, as did President Ronald Reagan. Then Hillary Clinton calls 50 million Americans "a basket of deplorables" for supporting Donald Trump.

Trump has been campaigning on building a wall to protect us from rapists, drug dealers, and other criminals that continue to cross our borders. He realizes no matter what the president says, our security is in danger. Let's not forget the 1995 State of the Union address by Bill Clinton where he says, all Americans, are rightly disturbed by the number of illegals entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public services they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. He went on to talk about deporting criminals, cracking down on illegal hiring, and barring illegals from welfare benefits. The reason for the backtracking by the Democrats is because Hispanics now outnumber blacks and it comes down to votes.

Sixty-five countries have built fences along their borders and Mexico received 75 million dollars from President Obama for a fence along their southern border. To pay for our fence, maybe Hillary Clinton can tell us about the $6 billion unaccounted for in the State Department under her wealth-building six years.
