It is so good. And only a man from outside the political system could have come up with it. Remember when people LOLed at him, saying he would lose bc of it, bc a Republican who implied America wasn’t great would necessarily get creamed?

We HaVe To Be OpTiMiSts LiKe ReAgAn.

Maybe Reagan’s dead and we’re not in 1984 anymore?

That said... 

Also notice that he said "Not big government, better government". Nothing about ‘small’ or ‘limited’ government. *Good* government.

"Government that *rides with us*, not on our backs" is not the nightwatchman state. It’s government that works for the average person.

For the not-very-bright people in the back:
- There’s no contradiction between saying Trump came up with it as an outsider *in 2016* and the fact that Reagan used it.
- I did know Reagan used it, that was the only memorable part of the movie "Veep"

But, "owned" or whatever. Screenshots of tweets!
