Hillary Clinton Defends Her Debate Preparations: ‘I Also Prepared to Be President’
Hillary Clinton took aim at Donald Trump‘s readiness for the White House during Monday night’s presidential debate, after he chided her for reports that she had spent a lot of time studying for the showdown.
“You criticize me for preparing for this debate,” Clinton said. “And, yes, I did. Do you know what else I prepared for? I also prepared to be president.”
The issue of preparation has been a significant contrast between the two campaigns, with Clinton viewed more as a policy wonk and Trump viewed more as someone who relies on his instincts. The candidates themselves have put forth these characterizations as well.
