Clinton pushes voting and policy at Tri-C rally

 

 

Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton held a rally at Cuyahoga Community College, where she pushed the rise in early voting numbers, her campaign agenda and why she will do a better job as president over her opponent Donald Trump.
“In the first four days of in-person, early voting here in Ohio, more people showed up to vote than they did at the same time in 2012 in our last election,” Clinton said. “That is fantastic. And it shows how serious people are taking this election. Numbers like that remind us that no matter all the negativity that’s out there, there’s something really exciting happening right now.”

Clinton added that there are more than 200 million people registered to vote in this election, an all-time high and that 5 million of those voters are between the ages of 18 to 35. 

In her speech, Clinton focused on the how she will improve lives by making education more affordable for the middle class by making college tuition free for any families with an income of  less than $125,000 a year.

“Education should lift you up, not hold you back,” Clinton said. “Too many young people are burdened by student loans.”

When it came to Donald Trump choosing to not accept the election results, unless he won, Clinton did not hold back.

“By [questioning the results of the election], he is threatening our democracy,” Clinton said. “The peaceful transition of power is one of the things that sets us apart [from other countries].”

She also attacked Trump on the way he has treated women and the things he has said about women during the campaign.

“We have built our campaign on ideas,” Clinton said, “not insults.”
