Trump critical of Hillary Clinton's record
Donald Trump on Wednesday lambasted Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, calling her a "world-class liar" and accusing her of cashing in on her Wall Street and other connections.He also criticized her for taking money from countries that abuse gays and women. I have heard other conservatives make these same complaints against her, but it is rarte to hear this from other politicians. Having made his case against her, his next problem is getting people to care. Democrats are unlikely to change their mind even if they believe what he is saying is true.
Speaking at his New York City hotel, Trump said Clinton “perfected the politics of personal profit” and “doesn’t have the temperament ... or the judgment to be president.”
Trump launched into a point-by-point attack of Clinton's record as secretary of state, at one point turning her now-famous 2008 campaign ad against her, accusing Clinton of sleeping while terrorists were killing four Americans in Libya, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Trump also made an early appeal to Bernie Sanders’ supporters, saying he would be able to understand their frustration with politics and a “rigged process.”
“The Hillary Clinton foreign policy has cost America thousands of lives and trillions of dollars – and unleashed ISIS across the world,” Trump said. “No Secretary of State has been more wrong, more often and in more places than Hillary Clinton. Her decisions spread death, destruction and terrorism everywhere she touched.”
Trump hit Clinton hard on her handling of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 that led to the death of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
“He was left helpless to die as Hillary Clinton soundly slept in her bed -- that's right, when the phone rang at 3 o'clock in the morning, she was sleeping,” Trump said. “Ambassador Stevens and his staff in Libya made hundreds of requests for security. Hillary Clinton’s State Department refused them all. She started the war that put him in Libya, denied him the security he asked for, then left him there to die.”
He added, “To cover her tracks, Hillary lied about a video being the cause of his death.
Trump also suggested Clinton as president would be influenced by the lobbyists, CEOs and foreign governments who paid her and Bill Clinton to give speeches over the years.
"They totally own her and that will never, ever change," he said.
