Monica Crowley: Trump Is Resurrecting Nixon’s Silent Majority

‘So many regular, hard-working Americans feel that their leadership on both sides is not giving them voice and not giving them respect’

HEMMER: “Monica, you write today, 'How Donald Trump is resurrecting the great silent majority.' 'And so tonight', -- you refer to Richard Nixon in October of 1969, '- to you, the great silent majority of my fellow Americans - I ask for your support. What is the connection with that from 1969 and Trump today?” [crosstalk]
CROWLEY: “That was known as 'The Great Silent Majority Speech' by Richard Nixon. And he was making an appeal for patience from the American people on the war in Vietnam. There are a lot of very similar circumstances."
