Trump Hits Hillary on Paid Speeches: ‘Frankly She’s Very Strange’

In an interview that aired Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump criticized his likely general election opponent presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump noted all the oddities of her speeches and the pay she received for them, and labeled her “strange” for it.

“She’s totally compromised,” Trump declared. “I can imagine what the speeches say. For some reason, you know, Bernie sanders has been trying to get the speeches for six months. He can’t get them. And she for some reason she won’t let them out. I don’t know what’s in the speeches that can be so bad. She won’t let them out. I will probably shame her in letting them out. I was hitting her on the term ‘radical Islam,’ she said, ‘I will mention it, I will mention it,” but I don’t think she will.”

“But for whatever reason she doesn’t want to give those speeches,” he added. “I don’t know. There’s something going on there, because Bernie sanders cooperate over a long period of time get her to give the speeches. He wanted them very badly. She made a fortune with stuff. What’s the purpose of it? What are people getting for it? You look at it, and there’s something very strange. The whole thing is very strange. Frankly she’s very strange.”
