Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton explained to a crowd in Des Moines, Iowa that she was disturbed by all the negativity surrounding the election.
“It breaks my heart to see all the mean spirited, divisive, bigoted things that are being said in our country,” she said, placing her hand on her chest during a rally on Thursday afternoon.
Clinton opened up her rally proclaiming that she wanted her campaign to be “about something, not just against somebody” and tried to spark a positive tone in the rally.
“We can have our differences for heaven’s sakes, we’re Americans, that’s in our DNA,” she said, calling for everyone to “listen to one another” going forward.
Clinton warmly told the crowd long stories about her parents, but her attempt to signal a bright new future quickly turned nasty.
“He spends all of his time just dumping on America,” she said, referring to Trump
She repeatedly attacked Trump, accusing him of hurting workers, and suggested that the billionaire hadn’t been paying any taxes.
“You can see that we’ve been blessed,” she said. “We’re grateful for that but we’ve paid the highest marginal tax rates, and we are glad we could.”
