Trump: ‘You Have to Be Wealthy in Order to Be Great’

Donald Trump said on Thursday that “you have to be wealthy in order to be great” after promising to make the United States wealthy.

“There’s one more thing that we must do to make America wealthy again, and you have to be wealthy in order to be great, I’m sorry to say,” Trump said during his speech in Bismarck.

The Hill reports:

After entertaining an audience member who yelled about building a wall on the nation’s southern border, Trump continued, “We have to make our communities safe again.”

“Violent crime is rising in our major cities across the country. This is totally unacceptable,” he said.

“It undermines their schools, slashes the value of their homes and drives away their jobs,” he continued. “Crime is a stealth tax, it’s a stealth tax on the poor.”

“To those living in fear, I say: Help is coming, it’s coming soon,” Trump said. “A Trump administration will return law and order to America.”

He added that security “should be enjoyed by all” and not just the wealthiest and most powerful individuals.
