In a fiery US Presidential debate, Hillary Clinton pushed Donald Trump on defense on Monday night. Hillary tried her best to remain cool and even smiled when Trump put up an offensive against her.
Hillary Clinton criticised Trump for his bad temperament, not paying taxes and attitudes on minorities and women during a fiery debut presidential debate Monday — a potentially pivotal moment in a tight election campaign.
Hillary was poise, calculated well studied and dominated her rival, who was nervous; Clinton was seen dominating Trump. Trump focused mostly on Hillary’s foreign affairs debacles and argued she has no plan.
He urged the need to create more jobs in US, by bringing back jobs industries lost to Democratic misrule.
Responding to his tax evasion issue, Trump said, his worry is where the US government is putting all the tax-payers money.
Hillary was against cutting corporate taxes, and mocked Trump, “I know you live in your own reality.”
She projected him as totally ignorant about the complexities of the American economy. On gender and race issues Hillary targeted him, “He has a long record of engaging in racist behavior.”
She alleged Trump called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and towards the end of the debate complained about Trump’s treatment of women. “This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs,” Clinton said.
She alleged he had called a Latina contestant in a beauty contest “Miss Piggy”. Trump hit back at her “Where did you find this?”
Trump lost his temper many times and Hillary used those moments effectively to provoke him further to make any mistakes. However, Trump later told media he has done better than he expected.
Trump tried to project a holier than thou image, hoping to woo voters stating that he can solve economic issues with his corporate experience. Hillary hit him under the belt by asking, “I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate.”
“And yes, I did. And you know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be President. And that is a good thing.” Trump again became his own nemesis many times with his false claims on Iraq War, birther conspiracy and foreign issues.
