"Make America Great Again" -- Ronald Reagan, Not Donald Trump

Ben Kamisar reports at The Hill:
Trump claimed he had come up with Cruz's line about making America great again and questioned whether he should have secured the rights to it ahead of the 2016 campaign.

"The line of 'Make America great again,' the phrase, that was mine, I came up with it about a year ago, and I kept using it, and everybody's now using it, they are all loving it," Trump said.
"I don’t know I guess I should copyright it, maybe I have copyrighted it."
Trump is talking nonsense.  He did not coin the phrase.  Reagan used it dozens of times.  Here are just a few examples out of many.
