The official GOP Twitter account shared a graphic on Monday night using a line from President Donald Trump‘s rally speech which mirrored Hillary Clinton‘s campaign slogan from the 2016 presidential election.
The tweet quotes the president saying “We’re only getting stronger together,” at a rally in El Paso, Texas last night, which is extremely close to Clinton’s “stronger together” slogan she used ahead of the last presidential election.
The similarities were quickly noticed by people online.
Trump's 2020 slogan is Stronger Together?— Jesse Ferguson (@JesseFFerguson) February 12, 2019

THIS IS A JOKE, RIGHT? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FORKING KIDDING ME.— Christina Reynolds (@creynoldsnc) February 12, 2019
STRONGER TOGETHER??? https://t.co/gOZ4qn6Ssv
Ah, Hillary Clinton's 2016 tagline being repurposed by the GOP.— Shane Goldmacher (@ShaneGoldmacher) February 12, 2019
Wait, what? https://t.co/SIzCFaUMwc
Hmmm. Sounds familiar. https://t.co/6G7Ptd7LDZ— Janna Reeves (@jannareeves) February 12, 2019

Where have I heard that one before? https://t.co/H0kKgkPEhV
However, it appears that the Republican party is fine with the similarities. Republican National Committee spokesperson Steve Guest told the Hill that Clinton’s loss in the 2016 election gave the GOP free reign to use the slogan.
“When you lose your campaign, you lose your monopoly on any slogans,” he said, according to the news outlet.
Update 9:19am CT, Feb. 12: Clinton responded on Twitter with a joke about her campaign platform in 2016.
