In a speech Wednesday morning in Atlantic City, NJ, Hillary Clinton laid out the case against Donald Trump, saying he is a fraud and a conman, who is all about "how much he can take" rather than "how much he can build."
"He always rigged it so he got paid no matter how his companies performed," Clinton said on a outside a shuttered casino bearing his name. The Trump Plaza Casino and Hotel is now closed and under new ownership, according to the New York Times.
Clinton laid the blame on Donald Trump for Atlantic City's failure and accused him of being involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits. "His businesses were failing long before the rest of the town was struggling," she said. "In fact, other businesses here did worse because Donald Trump acted so irresponsibly."
"I made a lot of money in Atlantic City and left 7 years ago, great timing (as all know). Pols made big mistakes, now many bankruptcies," Trump tweeted in response.
She opened her speech with a swipe at NJ governor and Trump-supporter Chris Christie: "If your governor would start doing his job instead of following Donald Trump around, holding his coat, maybe we could really get New Jersey’s economy going again," she said.
