Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump ‘Should Start Behaving Like a President’
Hillary Clinton has called on Donald Trump to start behaving like a president.
Clinton’s comments were in reference to a recent exchange where Trump accepted a man’s claim that President Barack Obama was a Muslim.
“I was appalled,” Clinton told reporters here. “He should have from the beginning repudiated that kind of rhetoric, that level of hatefulness in a questioner in an audience that he was appearing before.”
Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out. -H

“Let’s see what he does. I think that his taking a time out to think hard about what happened last night, what he did not call out or repudiate at the time, gives him the chance to express his regret about that kind of behavior and those sorts of comments in one of his political events,” Clinton said.
NBC News reports:
The Democrat said all White House hopefuls need to “start behaving like a president, to show respect and to stand up for the truth.”
She said the man likely would not have attended one of her rallies, but if he did she “would have called him out on it.”
