Trump Turns ‘Temperament’ Charge Against Clinton

Donald Trump, at Monday night’s presidential debate, accused Hillary Clinton of being “totally out of control.”

Fox News reported that the Republican candidate slammed his rival for declaring last week during a speech to labor-union members in Las Vegas: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead? … I need you to get Donald Trump’s record out to everybody.” Clinton claimed to be more committed than the real-estate tycoon to working people’s needs.

“I don’t know who you were talking to, Secretary Clinton, but you were totally out of control,” Trump declared. “I said, ‘There’s a person that’s got a temperament problem. That’s out of control.’”

Fox News pointed out that Trump, who is known for his bombastic style, was attempting to turn the “temperament” issue against Clinton. The former secretary of state has repeatedly said her opponent is “unfit to serve as president” because of his inflammatory rhetoric. In the debate, she cited Trump’s vow to attack other countries’ ships that approach U.S. vessels in the Persian Gulf’s international waters.

Trump claimed he has “better judgment” than Clinton, adding: “I also have a much better temperament than she does. I think my strongest asset, maybe, is my temperament. I have a winning temperament. I know how to win.” Clinton smiled and laughed at the statement.
