Hillary Clinton slams Trump for sharing edited Pelosi video – AOL

By

Hillary Clinton has called President Trump’s sharing of an edited Nancy Pelosi video “sexist trash.” While speaking at a Harris County Democratic Party event in Houston Friday, she said: “The president and his cronies have been running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi.” “Now, it is sexist trash, but it is also a sign that Trump is running scared,” she continued. “So if you believe in the rule of law and the responsibility we all have to hold our leaders accountable, then we cannot relent on this front either.” RELATED: Hillary Clinton at the Women in the World summit
