Hillary Clinton: MAGA Is a White Nationalist Slogan

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted a Huffington Post story about how President Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, Make America Great Again (MAGA), has been adopted by white nationalists around the world, in what amounts to another swipe at Trump supporters.

“The white nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan,” Clinton tweeted on Tuesday, linking to a Huffington Post story from earlier this month by Nick Robins-Early.

The Huffington Post story highlights how Alexandre Bissonette, who “stormed a Quebec City mosque and killed six Muslim men in January 2017,” once wore the MAGA hat in a social media post, along with other “prominent European white nationalists who wear it to troll their fellow citizens.”

“‘Make America Great Again’ has become more than a U.S. political slogan. For Bissonette and other white nationalist, radical right and anti-immigrant extremists all over the world, it’s a symbol; a kind of political messaging that transcends the specifics of country and language,” Robins-Early wrote.

Clinton has attacked Trump supporters in the past, famously calling them “deplorables” during the 2016 presidential campaign, but tying Americans who wear MAGA hats to white nationalists and violent extremists is a step beyond Clinton’s previous divisive rhetoric.
