Hillary on Clinton Foundation Attacks: "I Am Not Worried About This," "No Factual Basis To It"


(relevant portion begins at 3:40 mark)

JUDY WOODRUFF: Well, let me ask you about Donald Trump, because it’s typical in American — modern American politics, voters want a change in direction, usually after one president for this long. Doesn’t he represent that?

HILLARY CLINTON: Oh, I think he represents a great threat to our society and our economy.

Now, there may be some people who respond to his sloganeering and his bigotry and bullying, but I just don’t think that a majority of Americans are going to buy it. And we saw just this past week his racist attack on the federal judge, accusing him of being unable to be impartial in hearing the case that is exposing the fraud at Trump University.

And it is just heartbreaking, as well as outrageous. So, I think he has a lot of challenges in overcoming the words and deeds that he has already used in this campaign and before that I think make him unqualified to be president, temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Well, Donald Trump is saying, as I think you know, that he’s going to make a major speech early next week. He says he’s going to detail how you, as secretary of state, that there were conflicts of interests while the Clinton Foundation was doing business with foreign countries while you were in office, that the foundation benefited personally from this.

He’s going to talk about, he said, millions of dollars being exchanged. Is this something you’re worried about? And is the foundation something you need to sever you and your family from completely if you’re elected?

HILLARY CLINTON: I am not worried about this.

I mean, this is just more of the same recycled attacks that people like Donald Trump have been making against us for a long time. There’s no factual basis to it. That’s been proven time and time again. I can’t stop someone from retreading arguments that have been disproved over and over again.

He can say whatever he wants to. He can run whatever campaign he wants to. So I’m not going to respond to his personal attacks. That’s something that, you know, he can choose to do. I’m going to respond, however, to the attacks that he makes on women and immigrants and Muslims and people with disabilities and POWs and federal judges, and the list keeps growing.
