Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, former President Bill Clinton strongly rebuked his policies pertaining to Muslims and immigration — arguing that America needs a diverse society to successfully carry itself through the current technological upheaval.

” I am not arguing for any specific position, I am just trying to say you don’t need a world that will put the American experiment… in peril by saying us and them is a better model than by expanding the definition of us and shrinking the definition of them, ” Clinton said Sunday to loud applause during his commencement speech at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

Clinton acknowledged that both America and the world were undergoing significant changes due to globalization, which he said oftentimes causes people to become unsettled and threatened. But, he noted, that often has detrimental effects, some of which are evident in current policies.
