Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump has brought the Republican Party a long way — from “Morning in America” to “Midnight in America.”

The Democratic presidential candidate says the Trump “wants us to fear the future and fear each other.”

“It’s morning in America” was an optimistic line from a famous political ad aired by Ronald Reagan.

Clinton is asking whether Trump would stay true to the phrase on the country’s seal — “E Pluribus Unum,” or out of many, we are one.

And her take? “We heard Donald Trump’s answer last week at his convention. He wants to divide us — from the rest of the world, and from each other.”

She says President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous words are the perfect rebuke: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
