Eric Holder is a candidate considered for the presidency
Speaking in New Hampshire, says former Minister of justice, Eric Holder, his decision on 2020 will come in early 2019; Peter Doocy reports.
Obama’s attorney General Eric Holder said over the weekend the “Make America Great Again” – mentality is rooted “in fear,” – and blow in the President Trump, saying that he’ll “never be President call him.”
“This kind of thinking, this” Make America Great ” mentality is not only wrong, it is rooted in fear,” Holder said in an interview with Human Rights Campaign National Dinner on Saturday in Washington, DC, “And it favors an imagined past, a realistic future,” holder added, in remarks first reported by The hill.
Holder asked, to what period of American history, the “Make America Great Again” referred to the slogan.
“Certainly, it was when people were enslaved. Certainly it was not in the separation of the law of the country,” he said. “Certainly it was not when women are disenfranchised. Certainly, it was also, if the LGBT community was regularly stigmatized.”
Holder served as U.S. attorney General under the Obama administration, from 2009 to 2015. He has said he is considering a 2020 presidential bid.
Holder called the upcoming mid-term elections was an “opportunity to send a message” to the “current occupant of the White house, Mr. Trump.”
“I’ll never call him the President,” Holder said, referring to the message addressed to “the extremists who surround [the Trump], and to those who support him, that we do not allow for the dismantling of the social compact forced by Roosevelt and other great presidents between we the people and our government.”
“Make no mistake,” he added, “we are in the fight of our lives.”
The White house did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for a response to the owners comments.
