Hillary Clinton: Hillary Clinton on what she’s expecting from Trump vs Biden: ‘Not best actor’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who debated both Donald Trump and Joe Biden, elaborated on her expectations from the firs Biden-Trump face-off on CNN scheduled on June 27. In a New York Post article, she wrote that she loves theater about politics but not the other way round. “Too often we approach pivotal moments like this week’s debate between President Biden and Donald Trump like drama critics.We’re picking a president, not “best actor”,” she wrote.
‘Impossible to identify what Trump’s arguments are’
“It is a waste of time to try to refute Mr. Trump’s arguments like in a normal debate. It’s nearly impossible to identify what his arguments even are. He starts with nonsense and then digresses into blather. This has gotten only worse in the years since we debated. I was not surprised that after a recent meeting, several chief executives said that Mr. Trump, as one journalist described it, “could not keep a straight thought” and was “all over the map.” Yet expectations for him are so low that if he doesn’t literally light himself on fire on Thursday evening, some will say he was downright presidential.
“Mr. Trump may rant and rave in part because he wants to avoid giving straight answers about his unpopular positions, like restrictions on abortion, giving tax breaks to billionaires and selling out our planet to big oil companies in return for campaign donations. He interrupts and bullies — even stalking me around the stage at one point — because he wants to appear dominant and throw his opponent off balance,” she wrote
‘Biden starts from a disadvantage’
“Unfortunately, Mr. Biden starts from a disadvantage because there’s no way he can spend as much time preparing as I did eight years ago. Being president isn’t just a day job; it’s an everything-everywhere-all-at-once job. Historically, that has led to weaker first debate performances for the incumbent,” she wrote.
Trump will say this on abortion
According to Hillary Clinton, Trump will most likely say he wants to leave abortion to the states hoping to sound moderate. “But it really means he’s endorsing the most extreme abortion bans already imposed by many states and all the extreme restrictions to come. Mr. Trump should have to answer for the 12-year-old girl in Mississippi who was raped and then forced to carry a child to term. She started the seventh grade with a newborn because of her state’s draconian abortion ban. It’s because of Mr. Trump that in Louisiana a young girl unable to get an abortion went into labor clutching a teddy bear. Studies find that women living under abortion bans are up to three times more likely to die during pregnancy, childbirth or soon after giving birth. Because of Mr. Trump, one in three women of reproductive age now lives under such restrictions,” she said.
