Hillary Clinton addressed students at Temple University. She aimed at young voters who have proved resistant to her overtures. It sounded more like she was pleading with them.
She said she could relate to young people because the political situations in the country could go a long way to affect their education. She cited herself as an example and how she had to deal with her education even during the Vietnam War.
She warns the students not to be involved in political apathy. She also reminds them of the various bad statements made by Trump. She particularly mentioned the “birther” controversy that was started by Trump. She said he questioned whether the president, his president was born in the United States.
She was however not hesitant and honest to tell the students that she needs them.
She said, “I need you, I need you as partners, not just for winning this election, but for driving real change.” She also tells them that “not voting is not an option. That just plays into Trump’s hands. It really does.”
“Even if you’re totally opposed to Donald Trump, you may still have some questions about me,” she said. “I get that. And I want to do my best to answer those questions,” she concluded.
