Hillary Clinton on Tuesday commented on President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan.  "The white nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan," she wrote in a tweet. Clinton also included a link to a Huffington Post article about how the "Make America Great Again" line has become an identifying phrase for some "far-right extremists" around the globe.  "'Make America Great Again' has become more than a U.S. political slogan. For…white nationalist[s], radical right and anti-immigrant extremists all over the world, it's a symbol; a kind of political messaging that transcends the specifics of country and language," according to the media outlet. It also noted: "Beyond mimicking Trump's rhetoric to rile up nationalist sentiment in their own countries, the international far right embraces the U.S. president because he helps bolster the narrative of rising support for a global anti-immigrant, anti-establishment movement."  Clinton recently commented on the anti-immigration matter specifically.  Following the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Clinton tweeted: "Let's be clear: This administration's dehumanization and cruelty toward migrants will not stop after Kirstjen Nielsen leaves office. It is their principal policy."
