Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd on Sunday, National Journal’s Ron Fournier said that Hillary and Bill Clinton “have a history of squandering trust.”

“This is an election of negative partisanship,” Fournier said. “Americans are not going to vote aspirationally for who they want, they’re going to vote against who they hate the worst.” (RELATED: Albright Claims: ‘Nobody Is Going To Die’ From Hillary’s Emails [VIDEO])

“Trust is the gold coin of politics, it’s supposed to be anyhow. And the Clintons for all their strengths have a history of squandering trust,” Fournier argued. “This was a cynical strategy by the Clinton people. They gambled that trust was not going to matter, that they could get away with this email business and the public would forgive them.” (RELATED: Napolitano: ‘Ample Evidence’ To Indict Clinton, Only Lynch Or Obama Could Prevent It [VIDEO])

Fournier has been covering the Clintons since the 1980s when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas.
