It didn’t go well.
Trump and Pence were elected in 2016 with “Make America Great Again” as their slogan. This year, Trump has wavered between using the same slogan – despite the implication he failed to make America great during his first term ― or changing it to “Keep America Great.”
But on Monday, Pence tried a different take.
“We’re gonna make America great again, again,” he declared at the Republican National Convention.
Twitter users were quick to point out that the slogan is also a confession ― one that means Trump and Pence allowed America to become not-great under their watch:

If you have to say, “Make America great again . . . again,” you have failed. https://t.co/Rnvkf4eDsc

"Make America great again... again" because it clearly didn't work the first time? Not a very strong endorsement.

Pence just capped off his surprise speech at the RNC by pledging to “make America great again, again,” which sounds like an acknowledgement that the first term didn’t go so well.

Is that really the best slogan the Republican Party could come up with? pic.twitter.com/R0cv2p1Fcn
