People noticed the similarities to Hillary Clinton’s slogan.
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?
Um, my head hurts. https://t.co/Tw6og2g1oO

Ah, Hillary Clinton's 2016 tagline being repurposed by the GOP.
Wait, what? https://t.co/SIzCFaUMwc

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.
