Bill Clinton: Trump's 'standard redneck' base is what I grew up in

Democrat suggests Trump's base is 'standard redneck'; 'The Five' react to the impact on the capmaign

 

Bill Clinton suggested this week that GOP nominee Donald Trump's base is comprised mostly of "rednecks."

"The other guy's base is what I grew up in," the former president said during a campaign stop in Fort Meyers, Fla. "You know, I'm basically your standard redneck."

The former president also recounted a moment during the 2016 Democratic primary when he went to campaign for Hillary Clinton in West Virginia – a state that they lost and predicted they would lose long before voting even took place.

"[S]he said, 'There's no way that we can carry it,' and I said, 'No way,'" Clinton said Tuesday, recounting a conversation he had with his wife about campaigning in Mountain State.
