Stokols feels that Trump repurposed Clinton’s catch phrase to make her sound selfish and make himself sound like a populist.
“It hits a nerve with his base. The people who already like him, who listen to conservative talk radio and go to his rallies, they find this familiar. They like the rhetorical red meat,” he said. “But that’s no longer the audience.”
