Bill Clinton characterized Donald Trump’s supporters as the culture “he grew up in” in Arkansas during a voter registration event in Belle Glade, Florida on Tuesday.


“Look, man the other guy’s base is what I grew up in,” the former president told the crowd of Hillary Clinton supporters gathered at Palm Beach State College. “You know, I’m basically your standard redneck.”

Just last month, Clinton joked that he was confused by the “coal people” in West Virginia and Kentucky, in reference to Trump’s popularity in those states. (RELATED: Bill Mocks The ‘Coal People’ Of WV, KY)

“The coal people don’t like us anymore… They all voted for me, I won twice and they did well.”
