While campaigning Wednesday in Flint, Michigan — enemy territory given its heavy Democratic population — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump summed up exactly how America got off its path to greatness and why it needs to be “great again.”
And he used a zinger of a line to do it.

The Detroit Free Press and Fox News reported that day that Ford was moving all its small car production down to Mexico, giving him the perfect lead-in.

“It used to be, cars were made in Flint and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico. “Now, the cars are made in Mexico and you cannot drink the water in Flint. that’s not good,” he said.
“We shouldn’t allow it to happen,” he added. “They’ll make their cars, they’ll employ thousands and thousands of people, not from this country … and we’ll have nothing but more unemployment in Flint.”
Trump made his remarks at a Flint water plant, and was later a black pastor cut him short when he began attacking his Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Whatever one’s politics, observers loved that line, including some Trump critics.
Wow that is a great line. https://t.co/Huhrf6Ri4d

Even a senior writer at the Weekly Standard had to give kudos to Trump:
