A video of Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative back in February went relatively unnoticed, but deserves to be seen.
In the video, suggested bringing in more Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.
“The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” he said.
“Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses,” he added.
You'd think the best way to “rebuild” Detroit would be a change in government, but not for Bill.
“Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal,” he explained.
