• Bill Clinton: Donald Trump Could Win

    President Bill Clinton says Donald Trump could win the Republican primaries and become the party nominee for 2016 thanks to his ability to promote a unique personal brand.

    “He’s a master brander,” Clinton said during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Saturday. “And when you’ve got a lot of people running, and people are trying,  got to make distinctions, being able to put a personal stamp on it so people identify who you are, certainly counts for something, at least in the beginning.”

    Zakaria asked Clinton if he thinks Trump could become the GOP nominee.

    Clinton said “I think so,” but downplayed his opinion by noting he’s been out of politics for years.

    “I think so, how do I know?” Clinton said. . “I don’t understand any of it very well. I’ve been out of politics a long time. I haven’t run for office in 20 years. And also I’m not mad at anybody. I mean, you know, I’m a grandfather. I love my foundation. I’m proud of Hillary. I’ll do what I can to help her. But I’m not the best pundit anymore. I don’t have a good feel for this. All I know is what I think is good for the country.”

    He said Trump has given the working class economic reasons to vote for him, with his plan to restrict immigration and limit Chinese imports.

    “That all has to be fleshed out over the course of time and I’m sure the other future debates will do it,” Clinton said.m“But he’s got a lot of pizzazz and zip, he’s branded himself in a clear way and he’s generated some excitement. And it remains to be seen what’s going to happen.”
