Jakarta -Presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto showed two books from his thoughts related to the words “make Indonesia great again”. This answers the accusation he imitated the slogan of the President of the United States Donald Trump during the campaign first.
Prabowo said that the idea was made to restore Indonesia’s glory
“Alhamdulillah, as part of the struggle for ideas and thoughts, I have written that thought into a book that I titled” Restore Indonesia in 2004 and Rebuild Indonesia Raya in 2007/2008, “he wrote through a Facebook account, Tuesday (10/15) / 2018).
Prabowo explained that his work was a thought based on the spirit that had been planted since 73 years ago.
At that time the founders of the nation formulated the ideals of Indonesian independence with very expensive prices redeemed through blood and tears.
For Prabowo, independence is not enough. This is evidenced by the struggle of President Soekarno to the period of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
“We are beginning to feel changes in the administration of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Some of the changes we feel quickly, others continue to grow and process, “he said
Therefore, the Gerindra Party Chairperson asks “make Indonesia great again” or restore Indonesia’s glory is not a rhetoric that needs to be debated.
