Hillary Clinton calls on voters to ‘exercise our birthright’ against Donald Trump

November 6, 2018

Hillary Clinton urged voters Tuesday to “exercise our birthright” and vote against the Trump administration.

“For the past two years, we’ve watched this administration attack and undermine our democratic institutions and values. Today, we say enough,” Mrs. Clinton tweeted.

The former Democratic presidential nominee said “we won’t just vote against radicalism, bigotry, and corruption today. ”

“We’ll vote for fantastic candidates all over the country including a historic number of women who want to raise wages, fight for justice, and help more people get health care,” she said.

Mrs. Clinton added, “If they win, they’ll do great things for America. Let’s exercise our birthright as Americans today, put those people in office, and continue the hard work of saving our democracy. It’ll take all of us.”

Her reference to birthright appeared to be a swipe at President Trump, who said he’s considering executive action to end birthright citizenship for children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants.
