With race tight­en­ing, Clin­ton re­vives Trump-women is­sue

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

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.
