After targeting Trump’s temperament on Monday, and raising questions about his fitness to run the military, Clinton focused more today on what Trump has said about women.
“We cannot hide from this; we’ve got to be willing to face it,” Clinton said. “This guy wants to be President of the United States of America,” she added, as the crowd hooted its displeasure.
