Speaking in Homewood, PA on Friday, Bill Clinton criticized the “coal people” in West Virginia for supporting Donald Trump.
“We all know how [Hillary’s] opponent has done well down in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky,” the former president told the crowd at the Greater Pittsburgh Coliseum. “The coal people don’t like any of us [Democrats] anymore.”
Clinton added that “they all voted for me. I won twice, and they did well.”
Kentucky has seen similar trends in recent elections, with Clinton earning 45.8 percent in 1996 and Obama earning 37.8 percent in 2012.
