Trump: 'Nobody attacked' Clinton in debate; Sanders a 'maniac'
By William Cummings
Donald Trump continued his analysis of Tuesday’s night’s debate, which he live-tweeted, during a rally in Richmond, Va. on Wednesday.
The Republican front-runner’s biggest criticism was that he felt no one went after Hillary Clinton aggressively enough. “Nobody attacked her,” he said. “There was no attack.”
The moderators and other Democratic candidates stuck to policy questions, Trump said. In contrast, he felt the Republican debates were “like a reality television show. With me, everything was an attack.”
Trump was appalled at the extent to which he felt Clinton moved to the left to compete with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whom he calls a communist/socialist and a “maniac.”
“I watched last night as Hillary and Bernie Sanders, they just couldn’t give away things fast enough,” Trump said, presumably referring to their promises of spending on programs such as higher education and paid family leave. “And they’re giving them to illegal immigrants. They want heath care for illegal immigrants. They want drivers licenses for illegal immigrants. They want, listen to this, social security for illegal immigrants.”
On health care, Trump promised to repeal Obamacare and replace it with “something that’s going to be terrific.” He said his plan will save money, allow patients to choose their doctors and feature lower deductibles. He did not, however, provide any further details.
Trump sardonically praised Clinton for her flip-flop on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact.
“I have to hand it to Hillary Clinton. You’re all going to be mad at me, but I have to hand it to her,” he told the crowd of supporters. “It took great courage for her to go against President Obama on the trade pact. You know why? Because she could be indicted,” he said, implying that upsetting Obama could leave her open to prosecution for having classified material on her private email server.
