WILMINGTON, Del. — Hillary Clinton took a swipe at Republican presidential contender Donald Trump for flying into parts of the country on a "big jet," painting him as an out-of-touch magnate ensconced in his towers bearing his name.
"Donald Trump says wages are too high in America and he doesn’t support raising the minimum wage," Clinton said. "I have said come out of those towers named for yourself and actually come out and talk and listen to people.
"At some point, if you want to be president of the United States, you’ve got to get familiar with the United States," she added to laughter from the crowd.
The comments — focused on Trump's economic record — are the newest line of attack for Clinton, who has for months spoken about Trump's rhetoric. As Clinton moves ever-closer to a general election campaign against Trump, she has signaled that she is likely to focus even more sharply on potentially damaging Trump statements, including his claim during a Republican debate that wages are "too high." But her comments on Tuesday also criticize Trump for his "country club" and "penthouse" lifestyle.
