Trump Agrees With Obama That America Is Not Exceptional

Source: Conservative Review | June 7, 2016 | Phil Shiver

Donald Trump doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, and even if he did, he wouldn’t say it publicly.

“I don’t like the term, I’ll be honest with you,” Trump said in an interview obtained by Mother Jones Tuesday. He went on to sarcastically add “[other countries] have been eating our lunch for the last twenty years, but we’re more exceptional. I don’t like the term.”

“I’d like to make us exceptional, and we’ll talk later,” Trump continued. “Because I think your’e insulting the world.”

Interestingly enough, Trump attacked President Obama in the interview for using the term. This is odd because conservatives have long criticized Obama for not believing in American exceptionalism, but rather apologizing to the world on behalf of the U.S.

    They keep trying to “make sense” of the things Trump says. Haven’t they figured it out yet? It’s impossible. The guys is a fruit loop.

    EVERYDAY #6831

    And yet, stupid voters will guarantee Trump a sweep of today’s primaries.
