It has now been 277 days since Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton held a press conference.
The only event on #HidingHillary’s public schedule is the Commander-in-Chief forum in New York City, where she and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will field questions on national security, military affairs, and veterans issues. The candidates will not appear on stage together, but according to media host NBC, the candidates will appear back-to-back.
Wednesday, Trump campaign’s Rapid Response director, Steven Cheung, released the “question of the day” for Hiding Hillary, coined “A PRESS GAGGLE IS NOT A PRESS CONFERENCE EDITION”: “Secretary Clinton, do agree with the Obama Administration sending an additional $1.3 billion in hard currency to Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror?”
The Trump campaign release went on to explain that The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the Obama administration had made more cash payments to Iran than the $400 million cash ransom previously reported. The Trump campaign release also highlighted examples of Clinton’s support of the Iranian deal.
