Clinton ‘gets rich making you poor,’ Trump charges

by JULIE PACE and JILL COLVIN  |  published on June 22, 2016

Donald Trump launched a broad rebuke of his presidential rival Hillary Clinton Wednesday, accusing her of being “a world class liar” who personally profited from her tenure at the State Department. “She gets rich making you poor,” Trump said.

Seeking to steady his campaign after a difficult stretch, the presumptive Republican nominee cast himself as the White House candidate best positioned to address Americans’ economic interests.

“This election will decide whether we’re ruled by the people or the politicians,” Trump said during an address at his hotel in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. He made his arguments in a pointed yet measured tone, less loud and strident than has been typical in most previous campaign speeches.

Yet his remarks included erroneous statements and distortions about Clinton’s record, and he frequently referenced sources of information that have been widely questioned, including the book “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer.

    As the Democrats have shown, truth and facts are whatever can get media coverage at the time. If Trump is able to toss out a few sound bites that get media air time those will remain in people’s minds even if they are later disputed.

    We have reached a point in our nation where most of us see the national media as surrogates for the Democrat Party so their “fact checking” is not likely to change any minds.

    I’m glad to see Donald is going after Hillary. She is the person that stands between him and the White House. She is the one that needs to be defeated.

      At this point, it seems a significant part of the Republican Party stands in the way between Trump and the White House.

    Yeah, Trump says lots of stuff. Much of which are either exaggerations, lies, innuendos or hearsay. A few facts would help. Maybe Ivanka can pull some out of her superbra.

      Yes maybe bill can be on a panel to stop rape if Hillary is elected. The Clinton’s are much worse than anyone whoever ran for office. She makes up lies everytime she speaks. These type of statements don’t help our country. Believing every thing the biased media says don’t help our country. Not checking things on our own hurt our country. Not having a debate because liberals are never wrong and won’t debate they only deflect, hurt our country. Get the point

      • I Seigel

        Substitute “Trump” for “Clinton” and substitute “conservatives” for “liberals” in everything you just wrote. Get the point? Bias cuts both ways. No one has a monopoly on lies.

        And you’re very correct – “Believing every thing the biased media says don’t help our country”.
