Bill Clinton Says One Thing Trump Knows Is How to Get ‘Angry White Men to Vote’


Former President Bill Clinton said in a recent review that President-elect Donald Trump "doesn't know much" but "one thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him."

Clinton made the comment to a local newspaper reporter at the Record-Review in New York earlier this month, Politico reported Monday.

Clinton first said that Trump "doesn't know much" before noting something the president-elect does know.

"One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him," Clinton said.

During the interview, Clinton blamed FBI Director James Comey for his wife's election loss, noting how Comey sent a letter to Congress about a week before Election Day announcing that the bureau was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. Comey did announce that the investigation was closed again before the election.

Clinton also said he received a cordial phone call from Trump the day after the election, describing it as reminiscent from when they were friends 15 years ago.

When asked if he thought that Trump's win was a landslide, Clinton said no and pointed to his election in 1992.

"I got something like 370 electoral votes," Clinton said. "That was a landslide."

Trump received just over 300 electoral votes in last month's presidential election.
