Trump has made it clear that he loves dictators. He’s burned bridges with America’s greatest allies and formed bonds with known adversaries including the Russian and Chinese Presidents. Former President Bill Clinton has taken notice of Trump’s inclination toward turning American into a dictatorship.
Clinton appeared on Conan to discuss his thoughts on the Trump era and the direction the country is moving in with Trump at the helm.
Clinton said, “The country is much more diverse than it used to be, and I think that’s a good thing. We are still, compared to other countries, relatively young. And, having lost it, I can tell you: youth matters.”
He added, “We need immigrants to keep coming and diversifying the country.”
Clinton then shifted his focus, saying, “And the Dictators Club in the world, they want two things. They want nuclear weapons, because they feel like they can never be dislodged no matter how much people hate them if they’ve got nuclear power. And they want to abolish the line between fact and fiction and truth and lie, because they figure if you don’t know what’s true and you don’t think you could ever know, pretty soon, everybody will accept the fact that democracy’s no longer possible.”
Conan replied, “Are you talking about foreign countries now or here? Because that shook me to the bone for a second.”
