Washington: Hillary Clinton has said her Republican rival Donald Trump wasted his time attacking her instead of apologising to women, as the Democratic nominee described how the controversial tycoon hit a “low” during the second presidential debate.
“The differences between me and my opponent are pretty clear. To paraphrase my friend Michelle Obama, one of us went high and one of us went low,” Hillary said on Monday at an election rally in Detroit, Michigan. This was her first election rally after Sunday’s second presidential debate in St Louis, Missouri.
“Donald Trump spent his time attacking when he should have been apologising,” she said amidst applause from the audience. “Now, there are a lot of things he should apologise for, right?” she asked her supporters, who shouted back, “Yeah!” “On Friday, the whole world heard him talking about the terrible way he treats women,” Hillary said referring to the audio and video tapes that have surfaced in which Trump is seen making lewd comments about women.
Trump has apologised for his remarks made 11 years ago. The audience booed as Hillary made reference to those lewd remarks of the real estate baron. “Last night, when he was pressed about how he behaves, he just doubled down on his excuse that it is just locker-room banter. Women and men across America know that that is just a really weak excuse for behaving badly,” Hillary said.
“I would argue we are not who he is. We are taught to respect each other,” she said.
Warren Buffett slams Trump
Warren Buffett, the third richest man in the world, on Tuesday slammed Donald Trump for his remarks on him taking a “massive” deduction to avoid federal income tax, releasing his own tax information and challenging the controversial real estate tycoon to do likewise. He said that he has paid income tax since 1944 when he was just 13.
