Trump Waxes Poetic On 2016: ‘They Came From The Valleys,’ ‘The Rivers,’ ‘The Cities’

March 22, 2019 7:31 a.m.

President Donald Trump launched into a poetic turn of phrase with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo as he extolled his 2016 victory.

“I had one of the greatest election victories in history, wouldn’t you say that’s true?” he asked, prompting a “yes, absolutely” from Bartiromo. “They came from the valleys, they came from the rivers, they came from the cities, they came from all over, they voted in one of the greatest elections in the history of our country.”

Note to 2020 contenders: don’t forget to shore up the river vote; they’ll be indispensable in your path to electoral victory.
