Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who is leading in almost all major national polls with a considerable margin, has asked her supporters not to get complacent as her Republican rival Donald Trump can still win the November 8 general elections.
“I know that we’ve got to keep our foot on the gas.Donald Trump says he can still win, and you know, he’s right.Anything can happen in an election,” Clinton told her supporters at Cedar Rapids in Iowa, soon after the FBI said that it has re-opened the case against her email gate.
The former secretary of state, however, did not comment directly on this, even as she slammed Trump for his rhetoric.”His strategy is to get women to stay home, get young people to stay home, get people of color to stay home. It’s all part of his scorched Earth campaign. The last refuge of a bankrupt candidate. And it goes against everything we stand for in America,” she said.
People of the country, she asserted, would not let that happen. “Now how we will do that, by voting, by showing up with the biggest turn out in history. More women voting, more young people voting, more people of color voting. More Americans of every kind voting for a good, positive, unified vision of the future,” she said.
Referring to the three debates she had with Trump,Clinton said she stood next to him for four and half hours during those three debates.”I think that proves once and for all I have the stamina
to be president and Commander-in-Chief. And I have to tell you, he was always saying something that I was finding oh boy,unacceptable,” she said.
“I kept reminding myself – people say, ‘well, how did you keep your composure?’ Well, I practiced that a lot. I had my team and the young man playing Trump for me just insult me up and down. It was exhausting. I spent hours being insulted by my team and my friends and boy did it to prepare me to stand up for the process of electing them,,” she said.
