Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump met for their first head-to-head presidential debate at Hofstra University. Clinton, who has already dragged Trump by telling him to delete his Twitter account, was ready to drag the GOP nominee some more Monday. Here’s all the times Clinton dragged Trump:

"Trumped-Up Trickle Down"

WELP, Hillary with the first shot #DebateNight

Clinton brought up the fact Trump got a $14 million loan from his father. "He started his business with $14 million from his father," she said. She went on to cite his proposed tax cuts for the rich.

Climate Change

And she brought up the fact Trump has denied climate change, saying, “Donald Trump thought climate change was a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.” Trump replied, “I never said that.” But he did.

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

Trump’s Job Plan

Hitting Trump’s plans to make jobs great again Clinton says Trump’s plan would actually lose jobs.  

Defending NAFTA Clinton basically calls Trump delusional: “Donald I know you live in your own reality.”

Trump Checking

Clinton called out Trump being incorrect and plugged her website asking viewers to head there “If you want to see what the facts are.”

Trump’s Finances

"You have what's called the Trump loophole, because it benefits you," Clinton said about a tax cut Trump has proposed as a part of his plan.  

She would later drag him some more saying, “maybe because you haven’t paid any federal income tax for a lot of years.” Clinton mentioned she’s met many people who Trump has allegedly refused to pay for their work, including an architect in attendance at tonight’s debate. “I’m relieved my father never did business with you,” Clinton said about her father who had a drapery business.

Clinton also pulled receipts on Trump saying, “You’ve taken business bankruptcy six times” and “You call yourself the ‘King of Debt.’


Pointing out Trump’s positive relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin, who have both praised each other in the past. Clinton would then note how many people have called Trump “unfit” to be president. One of those people? President Barack Obama.

Nuclear Weapons

Speaking about nuclear weapons Clinton noted how Trump has said he didn’t care if other countries such as Saudi Arabia got nuclear weapons. To further illustrate how Trump shouldn’t be handling issues about nuclear weapons she brought back a line from her democratic national convention speech: "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons."


After getting hammered by Trump for allowing ISIS to form and now not being able to stop it Clinton countered by saying Trump’s “secret plan” to defeat ISIS was no secret at all. “The only secret is that he has no plan,” she said.


Clinton clapped back at Trump questioning her “stamina” by saying he can talk to her about stamina once he, “spends 11 hours testifying to a congressional committee,” among other things.

.@HillaryClinton: When Trump travels to 112 countries or testifies for 11 hours, "he can talk to me about stamina."


Not letting Trump go without calling him out for some of his most controversial comments Clinton said, “This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs, and dogs.” (Trump then defended calling Rosie O’Donnell those names saying she deserved it.) Clinton also noted how Trump has said “pregnancy is an inconvenience” and that “women don’t deserve equal pay.”
