Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus has declared Donald Trump the winner of Monday night’s debate.
“While Donald Trump won tonight’s debate by being the candidate of true change in Washington, Hillary Clinton spent the night championing a broken system which has let the American people down time and again,” Priebus said in a statement following the debate. The statement went on:
Living up to her reputation as dishonest and untrustworthy, she revealed just how willing she is to put her own ambition above being truthful with the American people. Whether it was evading her flip-flops on TPP, misleading about an uptick in crime, or refusing to answer for her multiple botched foreign policy decisions, Hillary Clinton could not shed her trademark dishonesty and level with the public.
Donald Trump showed he is the only candidate in this race with the ideas to stimulate our economy, defeat radical Islamic terrorism, and keep our streets safe in every community. The American people deserve better than a dishonest career Washington politician defending a failed status quo, and Donald Trump showed tonight he is the only candidate with the big picture leadership our country needs.
Priebus is clearly remaining confident despite moderator Lester Holt’s avoidance of the Clinton Foundation scandal and the immigration issue. Trump managed to challenge Clinton to release the 33,000 emails that she deleted from her private server.
