Hillary Clinton Calls 2018 'Dark Time' for US, Must Have Forgotten ISIS Destruction, Booming Economy

Share

While some were celebrating the positives of 2018 and looking forward to 2019, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used the end of the year to take yet another swipe at President Donald Trump.

This attack came by way of a dramatic photo of herself, husband Bill and daughter Chelsea posted on her Instagram account along with an equally gloomy message.

Clinton referred to 2018 as “a dark time for our country.”

She went on to praise activists, journalists, organizers and protesters, adding, “Here’s to more light in 2019.”

Many would wonder exactly was so dark about 2018.

Perhaps Clinton missed the news about the Islamic State group being essentially wiped out under Trump.

2018 also saw wins for the economy in a number of ways. Maybe Clinton missed all of that news, too.

The Washington Times declared 2018 “undoubtedly the year of the American worker.” The list of examples cited is impressive.

Wall Street: “steady bullish gains for workers.”

The unemployment rate: 3.8 percent, which “is matching its low point of the last half-century.”

Do you agree with Hillary Clinton that 2018 was a 'dark time for our country'?

More specifically, unemployment rates for blacks and Hispanics: In October, they were at their lowest point “since the day Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.”

Jobs: There were 7 million more jobs available than workers to fill them.

Wages: They “are now estimated at 3 percent (in gains) — one of the biggest increases in two decades.”

Bonuses: Approximately 4 million people got bonuses because of Trump’s tax cut.

But the good news in 2018 was even more widespread than all of that. Some on Twitter pointed out various aspects of what positives we’ve seen this year:

So, if you are against terrorism being greatly reduced, if you are against people having jobs, if you are against the economy booming, then yes, it was a dark year.

Is that what the former Democratic presidential candidate and possible 2020 candidate is saying she is all about?
