Van Jones blasted Hillary Clinton’s campaign during his speech at The People’s Summit in Chicago.
Jones, a CNN political commentator and former Obama White House green jobs czar, criticized the Clinton campaign for ignoring minority and working class white voters during the 2016 presidential race.
The Hill reports:
“The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves,” Jones told a packed house at McCormick Place in Chicago. “They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest.”
“Let’s be honest,” Jones continued. “They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign!”
While Jones’ comments have some basis in fact, he failed to mention the root cause of Clinton’s loss.
For example, candidates such as Clinton are elites and they don’t have any connection with hard working Americans regardless of race.
The problem is the candidate and the failed big government policies.
Jones reminds us about the deep divisions in the Democrat Party.
