Donald Trump smashed Hillary Clinton over her email scandal in a devastating video featuring a New York Post cover headlined “Deleter of the Free World.”
The March 11 Post cover referred to Clinton’s erasing 30,000 e-mails from her now-wiped server, which is in FBI custody.
Trump’s 15-second video cuts from the Post cover to a clip of Clinton saying “it doesn’t matter,” and repeats the sequence with a Time Magazine cover from March 18, 1996, before cutting to Clinton’s infamous Congressional testimony on Benghazi, “what difference, at this point, does it make?”
The message: “It does matter!”
The billionaire Republican presidential candidate showed his marketing brilliance in the timing of the video’s release, and it’s sure to go viral on social media. Trump’s logo and slogan “Make America great again” appear at the end.
As of Wednesday morning, the video—which was posted to Instagram and shared on Facebook and Twitter less than 24 hours ago—has garnered over 1 million views. Trump has over 3 million Facebook followers and more than 3.7 million followers on Twitter.
Trump boasts a substantial lead in the polls over the other Republican candidates, and has consistently focused on the dysfunction in Washington and attacking Clinton, using his substantial social media presence to get the word out.
