What significance is Donald Trump referring to when stating that he will "Make America Great Again"?


Is it a specific time period, event, etc? Why must his proposition be to make America great "again"? Why not make America even greater than it has ever been before? It seems as if he wants to degress all the success that has occurred through history within our nation. I truly want a deeper understanding of what Donald Trump means with this statement.

    Those were "great" times, but you need to consider the demographics of who experienced this prosperity. Consider all other aspects that America has improved. 15.8 mill new jobs, 20 mill more people insured, 165k troops home from war. Thanks, Obama.

    Indeed, being superior to the rest of world and killing many non-American lives, but prospering within our own country and affluence for ourselves. What are the demographics of who experienced this prosperity? But indeed a great time.

    I'm sorry. It physically pained me to read the first two sentences because of the illiteracy, so I can't comprehend your words past the first sentence, since they're not articulated well. Please, forgive me.

    Those points do hold critical truth! Though in a sense, being "great" is an opinion. You state that America was great in the 1950s after WWII, but not for all American citizens in all aspects. Why can't our goal be to be even greater than the 1950s?
