Hillary Clinton took her attack on Donald Trump’s finances and taxes to western Pennsylvania, while she blasted her rival for living a lifestyle of the rich and famous.
Clinton, who has family connections to the Scranton area and whose dad and brother attended Penn State University, pointed for the second day in a row at the $916 million dollar loss that Trump appears to have claimed on his 1995 tax return.
She pointed to comments from Trump where the real estate mogul talked about buying opportunities during the housing collapse.
‘Now who says that? Who wants that to happen?’ she asked a crowd of about 2,000 who gathered inside the local Zembo Shrine facility, a Shriners facility built in the Moorish style.
Clinton hit him for ‘Living in his big tower – he has no idea what’s happening,’ she said.
The former Arkansas first lady frequently dropped her g’s when speaking to the crowd.
She spoke about ‘Takin’ on all those kitchen table issues that keep people up at night’ as well as ‘makin’ sure that every family has the tools that they need to get ahead and stay ahead.’
Keeping her focus on Trump, amid a polling rise the picked up after the first presidential debate, Clinton said Trump ’embodies the risky behavior that cashed our economy’ and called him part of the ‘quick buck culture that still rules too many corporate boardrooms.’
Clinton spoke after a new NBC / Survey Monkey poll showed her leading Trump by six percentage points nationally.
