Hillary Clinton mocks Trump over similar ‘stronger together’ slogans

Hillary Clinton mocked President Donald Trump and the GOP after the party’s Twitter account appeared to use a slogan similar to the one she used in her 2016 run for the White House, encouraging the president to “copy” her policies on healthcare and voting rights as well.

The GOP shared a photograph of Trump on Twitter, which quoted him as saying: “We’re only getting stronger” — a phrase during he used during his border wall rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday.

But users were quick to notice the phrase’s similarity to Clinton’s “Stronger Together” slogan during the 2016 Presidential election.

Clinton herself responded on Tuesday, suggesting that Trump “copy my plan on health care, a fairer tax system, and voting rights.”

Clinton also shared a link to her website, where she lists the issues that she prioritized during her 2016 election bid.

On the website, she calls for “universal, quality, affordable health care for everyone in America,” a tax system that makes sure “the wealthy, Wall Street, and corporations pay their fair share in taxes,” and a system that is “making it easier to vote, not harder.

The site also lists policies including strengthening women’s rights, criminal justice reform, and gun violence prevention.

The GOP responded to Clinton, writing: “How about this: We’ll give you your slogan back if you run again.”

Steve Guest, a Republican National Committee spokesman, told Fox News on Tuesday: “When you lose your campaign, you lose your monopoly on any slogans.”

Clinton also wrote a book called “Stronger Together” with Sen. Tim Kaine, her vice-presidential pick for the 2016 elections.

Clinton’s 2016 campaign tested 84 different slogans before it settled on “Stronger Together,” according to CNN.
