Hillary: America’s New Chapter ‘Sure Cannot Be Chapter 11’

Wednesday in Atlantic City, NJ, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attacked presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump by declaring America needed a new chapter that wasn’t “Chapter 11.”

Clinton said, “Now, look, there are great companies in America. Men and women who care about their workers and the people they do business with and want to build something that lasts. They’re decent, honest. some might even make fine presidents. They would never dream of acting like Donald Trump. In America, we don’t begrudge people from being successful, but we do if they get rich by destroying other people in the process. So let’s just make sure we don’t put a person like this with his empty promises and his lifetime of selfishness in a position to destroy our lives. This isn’t about Democrats versus versus Republicans. This goes far beyond that. Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be president of the United States. So we can’t let him roll the dice with our children’s futures.”

“We need to write a new chapter in the American dream, and it sure cannot be chapter 11,” he continued. “So let’s prove that this fall we believe in an America that values hard work, treats people with dignity, works to raise wages, not lower them. We believe in an America where small businesses are respected, not scammed. And I have a plan to make sure big businesses can’t stiff suppliers and contractors, like Donald has been doing for years. On this beautiful day in this historic city, we believe in an America where people of all religions and races get an equal shot, and our economy works for everyone. Not just those at the top. So let’s carry that message all across America and fight hard and win in November and then let’s get to work delivering results for the American people. We are stronger together.”
