Former attorney general Eric Holder said that America has never been "great," during a Wednesday night appearance on MSNBC's The Beat.
Holder's comment came in response to a question from host Ari Melber about how it was possible to call America a "leader as a democracy" during the 1800s when women and African-Americans could not vote.
"When I hear these things about ‘Let's make America great again,' I think to myself: ‘Exactly when did you think America was great?'" Holder said, in reference to the President Donald Trump's slogan, which he used frequently at rallies and on merchandising during the 2016 presidential election.
Holder then pointed to instances in the United State's past when he said America was not "great."
