PITTSBURGH — Hillary Clinton criticized Donald Trump’s use of his speech in Gettysburg on Saturday to promise that he would sue the women who have come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.
“I saw where our opponent Donald Trump went to Gettysburg, one of the most extraordinary places in American history, and basically said if he's president he'll spend his time suing women who have made charges against him based on his behavior,” Clinton told reporters on her campaign plane, flanked by her running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.).
Clinton contrasted Trump’s focus on his accusers with the plans that she has laid out for the first 100 days of her administration.
“We have very specific plans, and we’re going to get to work the day after the election and do everything possible to be prepared on January 20 to start doing the business of the American people,” Clinton said. "Tim and I are going to keep talking about what we want to do if we're given the great honor of serving as president and vice president."
Kaine called Trump’s closing argument yet more evidence of the "self-interested" campaign he has run.
"At the end of the campaign, all along, he's been running a self-interested, me-first campaign, not an America-first campaign,” Kaine said. “And here he is saying that in the first 100 days I'm not changing, I may be POTUS, but I'm really going to focus on settling scores, and, oh, by the way, now that I'm president, I could really settle some scores."
“It’s just such a stark difference in the vision for the country and, frankly, the vision of what it is that the voters expect of us. … It really puts the choice so cleanly to the voters,” Kaine said.
