Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lectured Donald Trump for his comments about the Second Amendment, after her campaign accused him of urging his supporters to assassinate her.
“Words matter my friends,” Clinton said disapprovingly, citing his comments. “And if you are running to be president or you are president of the United States, words can have tremendous consequences.”
Clinton referred to Trump’s comments as the “latest in a long line” of comments that “crossed the line,” pointing to his history of “casual cruelty” towards others.
She accused Trump of participating in an “inciting of violence” from his supporters against her.
“Donald Trump simply does not have the temperament to be president and commander in chief of the United States,” she said.
Then said she was “humbled” and “moved” by a growing list of Republicans who were joining her campaign and rejecting Trump, choosing their country first over their political party.
“I have to tell you I feel that same sense of responsibility,” she said. “We may not agree on everything but this is not a normal election.”
She quoted a young male supporter who told her a slogan that she agreed with.
“Friends don’t let friends vote for Trump,” she said.
