Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke to thousands of supporters at a campaign rally Tuesday night in St. Clairsville, Ohio, where he ripped his rival, presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton on trade.

“Hillary Clinton is owned by Wall Street,” Trump charged of his competitor. “She spends millions and millions and millions of dollars already on me” in attack ads.

He said she’s “married to the man that signed NAFTA,” referencing President Bill Clinton signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He added, “She’s not bringing your jobs back. She doesn’t even know about bringing jobs.”

“She’s so totally overrated,” he stressed, saying even if she wanted to create jobs, she wouldn’t be able to do it.

Trump, who spoke on trade earlier in the day during a policy speech in Pennsylvania, continued to rip Clinton over her help in drafting the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, which is currently awaiting a vote in Congress.

He said the special interests involved in supporting the TPP “want to rape our country.”

“This is done by wealthy people who want to take advantage of us,” he charged.

“It’s time in our country that we have somebody with a strong temperament,” Trump added, mocking Clinton who has repeatedly questioned Trump’s tone and temperament. “It’s really time.”

“You think she looks presidential? I don’t.”
