Trump Accuses DeSantis of Plagiarism. There’s Just One Problem… By Matt Margolis.
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign sent no less than 13 emails attacking Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) after DeSantis announced his presidential campaign. .. One attack in particular really caught my eye: an email sent to the media with the subject: “Ron DeSantis Blatantly Plagiarizes President Trump’s ‘Great American Comeback.’”
According to Wikipedia, “make America great again” has been used in politics for decades. Barry Goldwater used it in 1964, and Bill Clinton used it in 1992.
Despite this, Trump insisted back in 2015 that he made up the slogan on his own. “The line of ‘Make America great again,’ the phrase, that was mine, I came up with it about a year ago, and I kept using it, and everybody’s now using it, they are all loving it,” Trump said. “I don’t know I guess I should copyright it, maybe I have copyrighted it.”
