Mook on Debate: Clinton Shouldn't Have to Spend Debate Correcting Trump's 'Lies'


Donald Trump's threat that he could invite Gennifer Flowers to Monday's presidential debate was meant to "mock" Hillary Clinton's campaign, according to his running-mate. Yet he's capitalizing on strength in his core support groups and on Clinton's own weaknesses, including concerns about her health. She plans to speak about her economic proposals and that she says will help families.

"It's a warning sign before the debate has even started about Donald Trump's lack of fitness - his bullying tactics - that make him unfit to be president", Mook said. Instead, the Democrat and her Republican rival tied at 41% support among registered voters, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson at 7% and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 2%.

The Washington Post-ABC News poll found that Clinton's slim margin from last month has now vanished.

The comment came on a day when Trump attacked Hillary Clinton's record with women and children.

Among college educated white women, Clinton leads Trump in the poll by 57 percent to 32 percent.

For Trump, 38 percent had a positive impression and 57 percent a negative one, a rating five points lower than it was prior to the two parties' national conventions in July.

While voters find both candidates lacking in honesty overall, Clinton's ratings were worse, with just 33 percent of voters finding her honest and trustworthy and 66 percent saying she is not.

In all, 44 percent of likely voters say they'd vote for Trump if the election were today, numerically his best since spring.

"We have not invited her formally, and we do not expect her to be there as a guest of the Trump campaign", Conway told CNN's Jake Tapper.

Flowers, via Twitter and a spokeswoman, responded that she'd be happy to attend.

The Republican presidential nominee on Saturday threatened to invite Gennifer Flowers to Monday's presidential debate at Hofstra University following Hillary Clinton's decision to invite billionaire investor and Trump-agitator Mark Cuban to the debate.

It now seems like an invite never quite made it to Flowers, who Bill Clinton did admit to having "sexual relations" with one time in 1977.

Conway said today that Trump's tweet mentioning Flowers was meant as a warning to the Clinton campaign.
