With race tightening, Clinton revives Trump-women issue
With just a week to go and the race for the White House tightening, Hillary Clinton unleashed a new offensive against Donald Trump on Tuesday, pushing the Republican’s vulgar and sexist comments back to the forefront. Trump strove to blend a quieter, presidential tone with his usual tough rhetoric, warning that a Clinton victory would “destroy American health care forever.”
The White House contenders clashed from afar — Democrat Clinton in Florida and Trump in Pennsylvania — with the sprint to next Tuesday’s finish well underway.
“When I think about what we now know about Donald Trump and what he’s been doing for 30 years, he sure has spent a lot of time demeaning, degrading, insulting and assaulting women,” Clinton said.
Trump, in carefully scripted remarks, cautioned that Clinton’s plan to strengthen “Obamacare” would lead to dire consequences.
