Hillary Clinton, a fixture on the American political scene for a generation, is set Thursday to accept the Democratic presidential nomination and then tell Americans why they should trust her to be the new American leader when President Barack Obama leaves office in January.
Clinton, the first U.S. woman to become a major party’s presidential nominee, is the country’s most admired woman, according to Gallup. Yet a majority of U.S. voters at the same time tell Gallup they do not trust her, conflicting views that have left her locked in a tight contest with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for a four-year term in the White House.
Trump regularly calls the Democratic nominee “Crooked Hillary,” who lied to the American public about her missing emails, and whose status as a longtime politician has made her beholden to campaign contributors. CULLED FROM VOA NEWS
