On Tuesday, Former President Bill Clinton set out on his two-day campaign bus tour of Eastern North Carolina to campaign for his wife Hillary Clinton. Along the route, he paid a visit to the city of Goldsboro, N.C.
Speaking to a diverse crowd gathered in a parking lot off of Center Street, Clinton told the crowd, “I’m a white southerner – I know what ‘Make America Great Again’ means, and all of you of a certain age know exactly what it means. I didn’t fall off this truck yesterday, I’ve heard this song a long time. It means first, I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago, and second, I’ll give you the society you had 50 years ago: I’ll move you up and move somebody else down.”
He went on to explain the “stronger together” slogan, stating, “it means connecting small towns and rural America to the successes of the American economy and giving everyone a chance to learn and earn.”
He also spoke about Hillary Clinton’s plan for free college tuition for families making less than $125,000.
The tour bus will make stops in Pembroke, Wilmington and Fayetteville on Wednesday.
