The Republican National Committee posted a graphic to its Twitter account this week that sounded awfully familiar to supporters of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton: “We’re only getting stronger together,” it reads.
Yahoo News — together with other media outlets and countless Twitter users — noted that the RNC phrase, borrowed from President Donald Trump’s speech in El Paso on Monday, seemed to borrow from Clinton’s campaign slogan as well.
Clinton’s 2016 slogan was “Stronger Together,” and she and running mate Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) also wrote a book together with the same title.
The former presidential candidate responded to the tweet with a little bit of snark, writing, “Now copy my plan on health care, a fairer tax system, and voting rights.”
RNC spokesman Steve Guest fired back, telling The Hill that “when you lose your campaign, you lose your monopoly on any slogans.”
