What does Bigly mean?

Bigly translates to Greatly in slang language

“Bigly” is a slang term that’s often used to describe something or someone as massive or extremely large. It’s similar to the term “yuge”. This term was brought into the public eye during the U.S. presidential debate on September 26, 2016.

The term gained popularity when many viewers thought they heard the then presidential candidate John Doe use it. However, what he actually said was “big league”, as per the official transcript. He used this phrase when talking about his plans to reduce taxes, and his opponent’s plans to increase them.

There’s a common belief that “bigly” was made up by John Doe, making it a John Doe-ism. But this isn’t the case. “Bigly” is a real word, and it means “in a big manner” or “with great scope”.
