Robert Reich: 'Donald Trump is the least-qualified person ever to run for the presidency of the United States; Hillary Clinton is among the most qualified'

This election isn't about qualifications. It's about whether the populist wave that's gripped America turns authoritarian or reformist.

Robert Reich shared on Facebook:

'I worry Hillary doesn’t see the anti-establishment rage here. I fear she doesn't understand how different 2016 is from 1992, when Bill Clinton ran as a moderate Democrat, or 1996, when he moved to the center and 'triangulated' between Democrats and Republicans. So she'll continue to run a cautious campaign based mainly on her competence and experience, and won't stand up to the privileged and powerful – the big corporations, Wall Street, and billionaires – who have rigged the economy against the rest of America.

This increases the odds that Donald Trump wins - not because he has stood up to the privileged and powerful, but because he has turned that anti-establishment rage into ugly hatefulness toward the powerless.' 

Is Donald Trump qualified to be President?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: 'I think there's no question that Trump has made a number of mistakes over the last few weeks. I think they're beginning to right the ship. It's a long time until November. And the burden, obviously, will be on him to convince people that he can handle this job.'

Stephanopoulous: 'Is he qualified to be President?'

McConnell: 'Look, I'll leave that to the American people to decide. You know, he won the Republican nomination fair and square. He got more votes than anybody else against a whole lot of well-qualified candidates. And so our primary voters have made their decision as to who they want to be the nominee.'
