Populist Rhetoric

Thanks David. This is a quote from a presidential candidate. Which candidate uttered this populist rhetoric? No cheating now.

They don’t control me. I’m not one of theirs. I’m not one of those guys that just owe my soul to the people on Wall Street. I’m not a wholly-owned subsidiary of them. I don’t live in the circles of power in Washington. I really do come right up from the people…What I did
do was improve children’s health, education, the road system. But we didn’t do it just for the people at the top. The tax policies and other things we did, it helped the people at the bottom so they might have a chance to live the American dream. For that, I apologize to no one.
