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.
Blacks were FAR better off in the 1950s-60s than they are now. Black men had breadwinner jobs, black neighborhoods were FAR safer. Black kids got decent education. 94% of the new jobs were part time. Obamacare is merely a huge, very burdensome tax.
look at US the 50s. (Obama): 4.9%unemploy rate is 8y low, but # people on food stamps (48.5 mil) remains high. Bill Clinton& Ronald Reagan added more jobs than Obama. U.S. goods exports.$1.6 trillion last yr, but imported nearly $2.4 tril last yr
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.
You seem to be implying that the US started WWII. Europe would have bombed itself flat without any help from us. ALL demographics were FAR better off.
Mary Jai, WWII actually was the reason the depression ended. After the war, was prosperity as we have never seen it again if you believe history. The decline of the US started in the 70s and has continued till today. Our National hiways were built
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?
