Bill Clinton Says Donald Trump Is ‘Fact-Free’
Former President Bill Clinton took a shot at Trump last week. He criticized Trump for being “fact-free” in all of his debates and discussions.
Bill was coming to the defense of his wife, Hillary Clinton, after Trump ridiculed her, calling her “the worst Secretary of State in history.”
“Well the thing about branding is, you don’t have to be — you can be fact-free,” Clinton said in response.
“Even the Republicans admit that the sanctions on Iran were well done,” he said. “And that was a major achievement, to get Russia and China to agree to sign off on these sanctions and enforce them. She did that. That’s what made the talks possible, so even the people who don’t like the Iran deal, like the sanctions.”
Clinton suggested that Trump will need to tone down his bullying if he wants to become a successful candidate.
“You know, if he becomes the nominee, he’ll have to sort of hone his criticisms a little more finely because the facts will be easy to marshal,” he told CNN host Erin Burnett. “But you know, he’s good at this, that’s what he does. And the people that he is telling it to now basically have only heard that story, so they believe it and it’s probably good politics for him.”
“You have to be able to be identified,” he said. “But at some point you also have to say what you are going to do. You can’t just spend all your time saying everything everybody else did was wrong and they were all doofuses.”
