Bill Clinton Marches In Detroit Labor Day Parade [VIDEO]

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) — Former President Bill Clinton made his way through Detroit on Monday morning as a part of the city’s annual Labor Day parade.

The president was campaigning for his wife, Hillary, and spoke briefly with reporters after he made his way through a crowded Corktown.

He said that when the country last adopted Republican policies that cut taxes on the rich and raised the debt, “it didn’t work out too well for us.”

Bill Clinton says his wife’s economic plan would create 10.5 million jobs while Trump’s would cut 3.5 million jobs. He is urging union members to support Hillary Clinton “because she has the best ideas.”

He questions Trump’s leadership and says his visit last week to Mexico “damaged America in every serious country in the world.” He says Trump played nice only to return home “to dump on them” for his own political benefit.

Both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton will also be in the battleground state of Ohio on Monday. Bill Clinton will appear in Cincinnati after his visit in Detroit and Hillary Clinton will be in Cleveland to meet with union leaders and workers at a Labor Day festival.

“Labor Day honors the American labor movement,” says Ron Bieber, President of the Michigan AFL-CIO, “and the contributions that working people made to the prosperity, strength and well-being of our country.”

The parade kicked of at 9:30 a.m. Monday at Michigan Avenue and Trumbull in Downtown Detroit.

  1. Ah, Surplus, lower debt and work, Welcome back Mr. President.

    1. Jonathan Gruber says:

      DNC PROPAGANDIST David is doing what all leftists do. They lie and lie then lie about lying…..

      FIRST: There was no surplus. SECOND: The congress lead by Gingrich shut down the government several times to FORCE the free spending liberal Clinton to come to heel.

      Globalist BillyJeff Clinton signed NAFTA and set the mass exodus of jobs from the USA to the third world into warp drive.

      I guess you and your leftist degenerate democrats missed the Detroit Union workers who shrieked NAFTA BOY GO HOME when the Arkie hustler tried to fool them by “marching” on Labor Day.

    OTHER THAN STEALING, CORRUPTING AND LYING….MARCHING IS A FAT SLICE OF A DEMOCRAT’S ACTIVITY….. I WONDER IF WILLIE-JEFF HAS RAPED ANYONE IN DETROIT YET….

    LMAO! Has he even payed attention to the debt that Obummer has gotten us into. From Clinton’s NAFTA and Obama’s TPP, our country is owned by the rest of the world and most of it is owned by countries that despise us. TRILLIONS of dollars in debt. smh.
