Concerning the leaked video in which Donald Trump boasts of sexually assaulting women, Trump dismissed it as a “locker room talk” and “one of those things.” Hillary Clinton however, said it is not just “one of those things” in anyway.
Hillary Clinton questioned Trump’s ability to serve effectively as the Commander-in-Chief of the United States. She said, “Well, like everyone else, I spent a lot of time thinking over the last 48 hours about what we heard and saw. You know, with prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them. Politics, policies, principles. But I never questioned their fitness to serve.
“Donald Trump is different. I said starting back in June, that he was not fit to be president and commander in chief. And many Republicans and independents have said the same thing. What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women, what he thinks about women, what he does to women.”
She also disapproved his constantly demeaning women, along with immigrants, African Americans, Latinos, Muslims, and people with disabilities.
“And he has said that the video doesn’t represent who he is. But I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly what he is. Because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign. We have seen him insult women. We’ve seen him rate women on their appearance. Ranking them from one to 10. We’ve seen him embarrass women on TV and on Twitter. We saw him after the first debate spend nearly a week denigrating a former miss universe in the harshest, most personal terms, so, yes, this is who Donald Trump is.”
“But it’s not only women and it’s not only this video that raises questions about his fitness to be our president. Because he has also targeted immigrants, African-Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, Muslims, and others, so, this is who Donald Trump is and the question for us, the question our country must answer is that this is not who we are.”
Hillary also sent a message for all children across American: I want to send a message we all should—to every boy and girl and indeed to the entire world: that America is great, and we are great because we are good and we will respect one another. And we will work with one another and we will celebrate our diversity.
“These are very important values to me because this is the America that I know and love. And I can pledge to you tonight that this is the America that I will serve if I’m so fortunate enough to become your president.”
