Trump says Hillary Clinton would be in jail if he were in charge of the justice system, promising to hire a special prosecutor to “look into her situation” if he’s elected president.
Speaking at the second presidential debate on Sunday, Clinton said it was “awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the laws in this country.”
Quickly responding to that remark, Trump said that was “because you’d be in jail” if that were the case.
Trump also promised that he would hire a special prosecutor to look into the Clinton email scandal.
“If I win, I am going to instruct my Attorney General to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor,” the Republican candidate said.
When Trump accused Clinton of trying to avoid questions about her use of a private email server, Clinton noted the Republican candidate’s own diversion tactics – and took a jab at the number of his supporters leaving him.
“Ok, Donald. I know you are big into diversion tonight, the way your campaign is exploding and people are leaving you. But let’s get to the issues people care about tonight,” she said.
