Trump: My supporters should be called the ‘super elite’
President Trump offered a new label for his supporters at a campaign rally on Wednesday night, dubbing them the “super elite.”
Trump once again railed against the “elite” at a campaign rally in Fargo, N.D., echoing comments he made last week at a rally in Minnesota.
“I hate it, I meet these people, they call it the elite,” Trump said Wednesday night.
“We got more money, we got more brains, we got better houses and apartments, we got nicer boats, we’re smarter than they are and they say they’re the elite,” the president said. “You’re the elite, we’re the elite.”
Trump went on to call the elite “stone cold losers.”
“Let’s call ourselves, from now on, the super elite,” he said.
Trump supporters have previously referred to themselves as “deplorables,” after Hillary Clinton used the term to describe his base during the 2016 presidential campaign.
