Trump did not hold back Wednesday morning in an effort to convince undecided voters he is the one to fight Hillary. Check out the epic rant!
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.
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 insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in the money,” Trump said. “That’s why we’re asking Bernie Sanders’ voters to join our movement so together we can fix the system for all Americans. Importantly, this includes fixing all of our many disastrous trade deals.”
Trump also took aim at Clinton on trade, and argued that her foreign policy is in part responsible for the creation of the Islamic State terrorist group.
“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.
DONALD TRUMP: Together, she and Bill made $153 million giving speeches to lobbyists, CEOs, and foreign governments in the years since 2001.
They totally own her, and that will never change.
The choice in this election is a choice between taking our government back from the special interests, or surrendering our last scrap of independence to the total and complete control of people like the Clintons.
Those are the stakes. Hillary Clinton wants to be President. But she doesn’t have the temperament, or, as Bernie Sanders’ said, the judgement, to be president. She does not have the judgment. She believes she is entitled to the office.
Her campaign slogan is “I’m with her.”
You know what my response to that is?
I’m with you: the American people.
She thinks it’s all about her. I know it’s all about you – I know it’s all about Making America Great Again for All Americans. For All Americans.
Our country lost its way when we stopped putting the American people really first. We have to go back to putting our American people first.
We got here because we switched from a policy of Americanism – focusing on what’s good for America’s middle class – to a policy of globalism, focusing on how to make money for large corporations who can move their wealth and workers to foreign countries all to the detriment of the American worker and the American economy.
We reward companies for offshoring, and we punish companies for doing business in America and keeping our workers employed. They get punished!
This is not a rising tide that lifts all boats. This is a wave of globalization that wipes out our middle class and our jobs.
We need to reform our economic system so that, once again, we can all succeed together, and America can become rich again.
That’s what we mean by America First.
Our country will be better off when we start making our own products again, bringing our once great manufacturing capabilities back to our shores.
Our Founders understood this. One of the first major bills signed by George Washington called for “the encouragement and protection of manufactur[ing]” in America.
Our first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, warned us by saying: “The abandonment of the protective policy by the American government will produce want and ruin among our people.”
I have visited the cities and towns across America and seen the devastation caused by the trade policies of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton supported Bill Clinton’s disastrous NAFTA, just like she supported China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization.
We’ve lost nearly one-third of our manufacturing jobs since these two Hillary-backed agreements were signed.
Our trade deficit with China soared 40% during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State — a disgraceful performance for which she should not be congratulated, but rather scorned.
Then she let China steal hundreds of billions of dollars in our intellectual property – China has taken it — a crime which is continuing to this day. Hillary Clinton gave China millions of our best jobs, and effectively let China completely rebuild itself.
In return, Hillary Clinton got rich!
