Trump’s victory speech regurgitates Bernie’s attack lines against Hillary. It didn’t work for Bernie and it won’t work for Trump.
In his victory speech on Super Tuesday, April 26, Trump channels his inner Bernie and hits Hillary on Wall Street, Iraq and “unqualified,” echoing the Sanders campaign’s negative frames.
Apparently Trump hasn’t been following the Democratic primary very closely. These attacks did nothing to help Bernie. If anything, they cost him a lot of goodwill.
But let Trump keep stealing from Bernie’s playbook. It will bring us a step closer to President Hillary.
Hillary appreciates it.
And so do we.
