Clinton Campaign Trolls Trump Over Inherited Wealth

“Having a small business owner for a dad may not get you multi-million-dollar bailouts, but it does teach you the value of hard, honest work.”

Hillary Clinton’s campaign trolled Donald Trump during the presidential debate on Monday by alluding to the fact that Trump has been able to benefit from his father’s wealth throughout his career.

Clinton called out Trump’s wealth during the debate, saying that he started his business with a $14 million loan from his father.

The campaign tweeted out a family photo featuring the Democratic nominee as a young girl and her father. “Having a small business owner for a dad may not get you multi-million-dollar bailouts, but it does teach you the value of hard, honest work,” the tweet read. 

Trump frequently has tried to claim that he is a self-made mogul who received only a small loan from his father. He has actually benefitted from numerous loans that his father has given him throughout his career.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
