The transcript of Trump’s comments in a July 16 interview with The Washington Post about Hillary Clinton and her emails.
It was released on Tuesday.
It shows Trump speaking about the former secretary of state and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in the middle of a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“Hillary Clinton is a crook, and she’s been for 30 years,” Trump said, according to the transcript.
“And Bill’s been a crooker for 30-plus years.”
“Hillary and her family have been a major contributor to this country,” Trump continued.
I think she knows it. “
I think she’s crooked.
I think she knows it.
And she has been for a long time.”
Trump added, “And she’s the one who gave us the Benghazi, where we had this terrorist attack.
She’s the reason we have ISIS.”
“She was involved in this for 30 to 30-some years,” he continued.
Trump also said the Clintons’ wealth is not as big as it once was.
“It’s not so much the money that she has as it is the influence and the power and the money,” he said.
“We don’t know that, but she’s very powerful.”
Clinton campaign spokesperson Christina Reynolds released a statement that did not address Trump’s remarks but did offer her condolences.
“The comments from Donald Trump about the Democratic National Committee, the Clintons, and the millions of Americans who have voted for her over the years are offensive and indefensible,” she said.
Reynolds also said that Trump’s “unwarranted attacks on the character of millions of voters, and his personal attacks on women” will not be tolerated.
