A Noticeably frail-looking Hillary Clinton discussed the bombing in New York City Saturday night, hitting Donald Trump for saying the explosion resulted from a “bomb.”
Clinton herself, however, began her remarks by likewise referring to the “bombings.”
“I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey,” she told reporters.
“Do you have any reaction to Donald Trump immediately … referring to the explosion as a bomb?” a reporter asked.
“Well I think it’s important to know the facts before responding to an incident like this,” Clinton said. “I think it’s always wiser to wait to until you have information for making conclusions, because we are just in the beginning stages of trying to determine what happened.”
CLINTON: “I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota. Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders. Also to pray for the victims. We have to let the investigation unfold. We’ve been in touch with various officials including in the mayor’s office in New York to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation and I’ll have more to say about it when we actually have the facts.”
REPORTER: “Secretary, do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump immediately took the stage tonight, calling the explosion a ‘bomb’?”
CLINTON: “Well I think it’s important to know all of the facts about an incident like this. That’s why it’s critical to support the first responders, the investigators who are looking into it, trying to figure out what did happen. I think it’s always wiser to wait to until you have information for making conclusions, because we are just in the beginning stages of trying to determine what happened.”
