Hillary Clinton Rained Hell on Donald Trump: ‘I’ve Met People Who Were Destroyed’ by Him (Video)

In an impromptu statement to CNN Thursday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton took the gloves off regarding her opponent Republican nominee Donald Trump.

A reporter asked, “Secretary Clinton, the reason that Donald Trump says he makes so many of his products overseas is because of the market, that it’s just too expensive to do it here right now and that he would change that market as president.”

The former First Lady and Secretary of State shook her head and said, “You know, when you run for president, you need to be judged by what you have done and I think the evidence is pretty clear. Everything he’s made, he’s made somewhere else. He’s not put Americans to work. He’s imported foreign workers instead of hiring Americans at his country clubs and resorts.”

She went on, “He has cheated contractors. I take that personally. My father was a small businessman and he got contracts.”

She said that she didn’t know what would have happened to her family if people had reneged on their agreements to pay her father.

“And I’ve met people who were destroyed by Donald Trump,” she said, “so take a look at what he’s done, not what he says. Thank you.”
