Donald Trump Takes Down Hillary and This Group in Epic Speech [VIDEO]

When Trump takes down Hillary Clinton much of what he says applies to a larger group, explaining why he became the front runner.

Here is the video footage showing how Donald Trump takes down Hillary. You need to skip 35 minutes to get to the speech.

While the focus of this speech will understandably be how Trump takes down Hillary, there are many things he says that give us an idea of why he was the clear winner in the Republican primary.

In fact, some of what Trump says isn’t even particular to Hillary Clinton. For example:

Everywhere I look, I see the possibilities of what our country could be. But we can’t solve any of these problems by relying on the politicians who created them.

We will never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who rigged it in the first place.

The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in the money.

Then he goes directly into an appeal to Bernie Sanders supporters and an attack on our “disastrous trade deals.”

In other words, Donald Trump is attacking many Republican politicians as well, especially ones posing as defenders of “Republican values.”

I am running for President to end the unfairness and to put you, the American worker, first.

We are going to put America First, and we are going to Make America Great again.

This election will decide whether we are ruled by the people, or by the politicians.

Here is my promise to the American voter:

If I am elected President, I will end the special interest monopoly in Washington, D.C.

These words are poison, not just to Hillary, but to the entire Washington establishment.

Will Donald Trump pull it off?

Given the hysterical opposition from Republicans against their own frontrunner, it seems likely he is going to do something right. He is certainly preferable to Hillary Clinton.

With that set up, Donald Trump takes down Hillary, not by portraying her as exceptionally corrupt first, but also as representative of an entire system that Trump opposes—and one that isn’t exclusively Democrat.

Hillary Clinton wants to be President. But she doesn’t have the temperament, or, as Bernie Sanders’ said, the judgement, to be president.

She believes she is entitled to the office.

Her campaign slogan is “I’m with her.”

You know what my response to that is? I’m with you: the American people.

She thinks it’s all about her.

I know it’s all about you – I know it’s all about making America Great Again for All Americans.

Our country lost its way when we stopped putting the American people first.

It is notable that I can only find the Democrat Party mentioned once in the entire speech. Plainly Trump is running to be President of all Americans.

And, in so doing, he is running against the political class.
