Thursday night Donald Trump gave a speech in which he admitted he has said some things in the past that he now regrets.
“Sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake is for us to be consumed by these issues, but one thing I can promise you is this. I will always tell you the truth. I speak the truth for all of you, and for everyone in this country who doesn’t have a voice.”
Of course Trump doesn’t single out any of the MANY offensive things he has said over the past 15 months, so Hillary Clinton decided to help him point those out.
In a statement released Thursday night, Clinton wrote:
“Donald Trump literally started his campaign by insulting people. He has continued to do so through each of the 428 days from then until now, without shame or regret. We learned tonight that his speechwriter and teleprompter knows he has much for which he should apologize. But that apology tonight is simply a well-written phrase until he tells us which of his many offensive, bullying and divisive comments he regrets—and changes his tune altogether.”
And then she points out several ideas for remarks he should apologize for:
