Dinesh D'Souza: America 'Dodged the Bullet' by Rejecting Hillary

Newsmax TV's "The Joe Pags Show"

Friday, 11 November 2016 08:58 PM

America "dodged the bullet" on Election Day with a rejection of Hillary Clinton, writer and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza told Newsmax TV.

In an interview with host Joe Pagliarulo on "The Joe Pags Show," D'Souza, the author of "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party," said there was "a terrifying array of forces against" Donald Trump, as well as a "revolt against Trump" within the GOP.

"The country dodged the bullet on Tuesday in a way that I don't even think most Americans realize," he declared. "Simply by keeping [the Clintons] out of the White House and, in a sense, retiring Hillary from politics — that's a huge accomplishment." "How Trump managed to pull it off, I'm still slightly in shock," he added.

He said, however, the president-elect will have to be "at this point, very careful" of the political establishment in Washington.

"He should recognize that he's an outsider to politics and the people who are in the game are very cunning and they have been manipulating the game for a long time," he said. "They're going to try to manipulate him and they're going to try to draw him into the swamp that he's supposed to be draining."

D'Souza noted President Barack Obama, for example, is "hoping at this point to con Trump into keeping some elements of Obamacare."

"This is his best hope to salvage Obamacare which is the signature aspect of his legacy," he said. "I don't think that Trump is dumb enough to go for it."

D'Souza sees good news for Republicans ahead — and not only because of Trump's election, but because of the GOP's control in Congress.

I see the Democratic Party moving [left] which I think is actually good for the Republicans," he said. "If the Republicans can compete effectively for working-class whites and do intelligent outreach to blacks and Hispanics, this is a way for us to be the majority party going forward.

"Republicans have been trying to win those so-called Reagan Democrats for 25 years and by in large we have done it by appealing to social issues in the hope and expectation that the social issues will trump economic issues," he added.

"But the ingenuity of Trump is that he appeals to those guys on both economic and social issues and he got them."
