Tim Kaine Makes the Case in Milwaukee for Secretary Hillary Clinton

Tim Kaine says Hillary Clinton is ready to tackle the tough issues if elected in November

Democratic Vice Presidential hopeful Tim Kaine hit the campaign trail in Milwaukee Friday. He told the crowd of hundreds that they had a choice to make. He echoed president Obama at the Democratic National Convention by saying Secretary Clinton is the most qualified person ever to lead the country. Kaine then went on to blast Donald Trump.

“He gives you the punch line, everybody’s going to be rich, but when you ask him how he just says believe me. We’re going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it, believe me. We’re going to beat ISIS so fast, believe me,” Kaine says.

Kaine says not only has Clinton talked about creating well-paying jobs, she’s clear on how to do it. He says Trump is creating distractions in order to avoid the details.

“While we’ve been talking about jobs, Donald Trump has been going after the family of a war hero. Or Donald Trump has been going after fellow Republicans and talking about why he won’t endorse them in their primary. We’re talking about jobs and Donald Trump is basically shadow boxing with every enemy he can think of instead of talking about what Americans want to talk about,” Kaine says.

Kaine called upon Wisconsinites to knock on doors and encourage people to vote for Hillary Clinton in November. With about three months left until the election, Wisconsin has become a magnet for the candidates. Not only was Kaine in Milwaukee on Friday, Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence campaigned in Green Bay.
