DES MOINES–Iowa Democratic Party Chair, Dr. Andy McGuire issued the following statement on Hillary Clinton’s performance during last night’s presidential debate:
“Last night Hillary Clinton was on point. She was on topic, and she was on fire. Despite constant interruptions from Donald Trump, Clinton maintained her composure and delivered detailed plans that included an economic plan to invest in our infrastructure and small businesses. She behaved like a President, spoke like a President and emerged as the clear winner of the first presidential debate.
“True to form, Donald Trump was totally unprepared to answer tough, serious questions and relied on quips and sound bites for the entire 90 minutes. When pressed on specifics,Trump offered no clear plans and repeated false statements. At times, Trump appeared uncomfortable, unhinged and totally unfit to handle even the smallest crisis.”
DES MOINES – Iowa Democratic Party Chair Dr. Andy McGuire released the following statement on tonight’s CNN Debate:
“Hillary Clinton exceeded all expectations tonight with a clear vision and comprehensive plans to move our country forward and create an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. Donald Trump continued his campaign built upon baseless claims, unfounded exaggerations and conspiracy theories. Trump proved once again tonight that he is completely unfit and unprepared to lead our country. Hillary Clinton is prepared to be President of the United States on day one.
DES MOINES— In preparation for tonight’s first presidential debate, there is one thing Donald Trump would like American voters to ignore: the facts. Trump has built his campaign upon blatant lies and countless, false accusations, and high-profile television journalists have let him get away with it. As President Obama has pointed out several times, running for President “is not a reality t.v. show”. This is not entertainment. This isn’t sports. This is politics with serious implications and potentially disastrous consequences. While campaigning in Iowa for Clinton over the weekend, former Governor, Tom Vilsack, warned that a Trump presidency would cause “irreparable harm” to the country and over 50 G.O.P. national security advisers say that Trump as President poses a “risk” to national security.
DES MOINES— Donald Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, like to talk a big talk when it comes to job creation. Without outlining specifics, Trump promises to bring millions of jobs to the country despite his own personal business history of outsourcing jobs to countries like China, Turkey and Bangladesh. Economists predict that Trump’s job creation plan would deepen the national deficit and cripple essential Veterans Affairs programs that our veterans need. The truth is there is a sharp disconnect between lofty, ambitious campaign promises of the Trump/Pence campaign and and the reality of their record. Voters can learn all they need to know from Mike Pence’s record of economic shortfall and discriminatory policies as Governor of Indiana.
