WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) — Former president Bill Clinton is making several stops Tuesday and Wednesday in eastern North Carolina campaigning for his wife.
On Tuesday, Clinton made stops in Rocky Mount, Wilson and Goldsboro.
Clinton spoke about his wife’s plan to make public colleges and universities more affordable and to help students be able to refinance their debt.
He also had this take about Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.”
“I didn’t fall off this truck yesterday. I’ve heard this song a long time. It means first, I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and, second, I’ll give you the society you had 50 years ago. I’ll move you up and move somebody else down,” Clinton said.
Research has shown that Clinton himself used the term “Make America Great Again” while he campaigned for his wife in 2008 and during his run for presidency in the past.
Clinton talked about the importance of uniting people even while much of the country is divided.
Bill Clinton has several stops in North Carolina on Wednesday, including Wilmington, Pembroke and Fayetteville.
