GOP nominee Donald Trump described himself as a ‘counter-puncher’ in a speech in San Jose Thursday night, and called for Hillary Clinton to be jailed for using a private email server to send classified government material while Secretary of State.
Trump called Clinton out over a speech she made earlier in the day, which he referred to as “a Donald Trump hit job”.
“After what she said about me today in her phony speech — that was a phony speech, that was a Donald Trump hit job — I will say this: Hillary Clinton has to go to jail,” Trump declared.
Trump then said that Clinton is only siding with President Obama currently on issues such as the Iran deal because she knows the White House can expose her on the email issue.
“Anything Obama wants, she’s going forward with because you know why? She doesn’t want to go to jail,” Trump said.
“The only reason she’s behaving like this, and the only reason she’s been dragged so far left, believe me, is she doesn’t want to go to jail over the emails,” he added, noting that during the 2008 election campaign Obama and Hillary “hated each other”.
“Folks, honestly, she’s guilty as hell,” Trump continued. “The fact that they even allow her to participate in this race is a disgrace to the United States, it’s a disgrace to our nation.”
During her speech in San Diego, as the candidates head into the California primary, Hillary said Trump does not have the temperament to be president, and that his proposals consist of “bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies.”
“Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just different; they are dangerously incoherent,” Clinton said.
Indeed, Hillary referred to Trump over 60 times during her 30 minute speech, which was supposed to be focused on her foreign policies.
Trump hit back, stating “My temperament is so much tougher, and so much better, than her temperament. And, by the way, we need a tough temperament,” he said, also noting that that Hillary “stupidly raised her hand” for the Iraq War.
“Hillary said, ‘Oh, Donald Trump, his finger on the button,’” Trump continued, adding “I’m the one who didn’t want to go in Iraq, folks.”
Trump called her speech “pathetic,” and added “It had nothing to do with foreign policy.”
The GOP nominee further described Hillary’s speech as dull and boring, adding “I think she’s make more money if she made speeches and sold them for people that can’t sleep.”
Trump later sent out a series of tweets attacking Clinton.
