Hillary says that Trump will take America backwards and divide the American People. I say, how stupid does she think we are? Her and President Obama have done more in the past eight years to divide America, promote racism, and move America straight into Socialism/Communism and to the demise of our American Way of Life. Of course we want Trump to take America backwards to a time when people had values, jobs, patriotism, common willingness to take care of the poor in their communities. So YES, please Mr. Trump, take America backwards to restore the America that honors the good in our nation.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday announced the “milestone” of being the first woman to win a major party’s presidential nomination – even though her opponent, Bernie Sanders, had not conceded.
Republican Donald Trump likewise pivoted toward the general election, saying a Clinton presidency would continue the “disaster” of President Barack Obama’s years.
Clinton and Trump both won in New Jersey on Tuesday night.
Clinton also won in New Mexico and South Dakota, while Trump also was swiftly declared the winner in all the other states that held GOP contests Tuesday — South Dakota, New Mexico, Montana, and California.
CBS News estimated early Wednesday morning that Clinton was also likely to win in California, but no final result had been determined as of early Wednesday. Sanders was ahead in Montana, but that race also had not yet been called early Wednesday morning.
In addressing supporters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Clinton presented herself as the presumptive nominee and noted that she had now won the majority of pledged delegates.
“It may be hard to see tonight, but we are standing under a glass ceiling right now. But don’t worry – we’re not smashing this one. Thanks to you, we’ve reached a milestone – the first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be a major party’s nominee,” Clinton said.
Clinton also addressed Sanders in a conciliatory tone.
“I want to congratulate Senator Sanders for the extraordinary campaign he has put on,” she said.
Clinton also slammed Trump, saying he wanted to divide the country.
“Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be president, and he’s not just trying to build a wall between America and Mexico. He’s trying to wall off Americans from each other,” Clinton said. “When he says, ‘Let’s make America great again,’ that is code for, ‘Let’s take America backwards.’”
