Hillary Clinton tells Florida voters to ‘reaffirm their values’ at polls

My opponent’s only infrastructure plan is to build a wall. I love that he went down to Mexico and he choked. He didn’t even raise it. He’s been going around telling people for months, ‘We’re going to build a wall and we’re going to make Mexico pay for it.’ So he’s sitting with the president of Mexico and he doesn’t even bring it up. He finds it a lot easier to insult women than to talk to the president of Mexico about building a wall. I mean, really, who gets up at 3 o’clock in the morning to engage in a Twitter attack against a former Miss Universe? I mean, he hurled as many insults as he could. Really, why does he do things like that? I mean, his latest Twitter meltdown is unhinged, even for him. It proves yet again that he is temperamentally unfit to be president and commander-in-chief. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: A man who can be provoked by a tweet should not be anywhere near the nuclear codes.

So I’m going to keep talking about what we can do together after this election. Getting those new jobs. And I’ll tell you, another area I want to emphasize is small business. As I said the other night, my dad was a small businessman. He made a lot of sacrifice and he worked really hard to give us a good, solid, middle-class life. I’m really proud of that. And I’m sure glad he never got a contract from Donald Trump, who stiffs small businesses, doesn’t pay his bills to people like my dad. But we need to do more to get small business started and growing – here in Broward County, throughout South Florida, across the state, and beyond.

So as we grow the economy, we also have to make it fairer. I want prosperity to reach everyone, not just the privileged few. So we are going to raise the minimum wage because if you work full-time, you should not still be in poverty. And you know, two-thirds of all minimum wage workers are women, most of them supporting kids. And if you work full-time on a minimum wage job, at the end of the year you’ve made $15,000. I think we can do better. And I think we should because we want everybody to have a chance to get ahead and stay ahead and go as far as their hard work and talent will take them.

Something else we’re going to do is we are finally going to guarantee equal pay for women’s work. Now, this is not, my friends, just a women’s issue. If you have a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, who is working, it’s your issue, too, to make sure she is paid fairly. That will raise family incomes.
