Donald Trump said at a campaign rally in Richmond, Virginia, on Friday that he has decided to expand his famous campaign slogan to "Make America Great Again for Everyone" to prove he isn't racist.
"You know, I have the theme 'make America great again,'" Trump told the crowd, "and I've added a couple of things. Right now I’m adding make America great again — I’m adding 'for everyone,' because it’s really going to be for everyone. It's not going to be for a group of people. It’s going to be for everyone. It’s true."
Trump's slogan 2.0 comes after persistent allegations of racism following his insistence that the judge presiding over lawsuits against Trump University has an "absolute conflict" of interest because of his Mexican ancestry. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan labeled Trump's comments the "textbook definition of racism" and former Speaker New Gingrich — typically a loyal Trump supporter — called them "inexcusable."
