“I mean ask yourself how can anybody lose money running a casino? Really?” Hillary Clinton on Donald Trump

“What little we know of his economic policies would be running up our debt, starting trade wars, letting Wall Street run wild, all of that could cause another crash and devastate working families and our country. Trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs, more debt. He could bankrupt America like he’s bankrupted his companies. I mean, ask yourself, how can anybody lose money running a casino? Really. ” Hillary Clinton said at the Service Employees International Union’s annual convention in Detroit.

Clinton was of course referring to the four bankruptcies that Trump filed between 1991 and 2009. Trump filed for bankruptcy on the Taj Mahal in 1991, the Trump Castle Associates in 1992, he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Trump Hotel & Casino Resorts in 2004 and Trump Entertainment Resorts in 2009.

“He could bankrupt America like he’s bankrupted his companies,” Clinton warned. “I mean, ask yourself, how can anybody lose money running a casino? Really.”

Sonia started breathing again while on her way to hospital and was soon afterwards admitted to Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital, where she underwent life saving surgery.

Sonia said: “The only thing I remember is my late husband coming to me and saying ‘it’s not your time, Sonia, go back to the children.’ Then I woke up in hospital.”

“It’s strange to think I was technically dead for an hour.” added Sonia.

“Every day I think how incredible it is that I’m still here.” she said. “I don’t take anything for granted.”
