Hours after Donald Trump finished bashing her as a liar and crook, Hillary Clinton struck back during a rally Wednesday in North Carolina. “He’s going after me personally because he has no answers,” the Washington Post quotes Clinton as saying. “All he can do is try to distract us.” She labeled Trump's remarks "outright lies" and said we can't let him "bankrupt America" as he's "bankrupted his casinos," the AP reports. She accused Trump of having "flashy slogans" and "reckless ideas that will run up our debt and cause another economic crash."

When not responding to Trump's attacks on her, Clinton spent the rally discussing her plans to help the economy and middle class. Those plans include debt-free college, more access to child care, and what she says will be the biggest investment in US jobs since WWII. She also said she wants to make sure the "super rich" and Wall Street "pay their fair share of taxes." According to Vox, the speech acted as a "clear sign" that Clinton isn't planning on moving to the center to win over Republicans put off by Trump. Or, at least she isn't yet.
