Clinton, Trump warn
against each other
FLORIDA---Donald Trump could
draw the United States into
nuclear war, Hillary Clinton
warns. Clinton would plunge the
country into a constitutional cri-
sis, he says.
As the caustic presidential race
lurches toward the finish line, each
candidate is aggressively casting
the other as a catastrophic choice
for the White House. Making an
affirmative case about his or her
qualifications and vision has
become a secondary priority.
It s an ugly conclusion to a con-
test featuring two of the most
unpopular presidential candidates
in modern American politics.
The sexual assault accusations
that have trailed Trump in the
race s closing weeks and a new FBI
review into Clinton s email habits
seem likely to only reinforce the
public s negative perceptions, leav-
ing the candidates to essentially
argue to voters that they re the
best of two unappealing options.
"I would rather be here talking
about nearly anything else," Clinton
said Tuesday during a rally in Flori-
da where she leveled a series of
attacks on Trump s character and
preparedness for the White House.
"But I can t just talk about all of
the good things we want to do."
Indeed, Clinton s speeches in
this final full week of campaigning
have overwhelmingly focused on
Trump. On Monday, she warned
against giving Trump the authority
to order a nuclear attack, bringing
along a former nuclear launch offi-
cer to bolster her point.
After spending much of the
summer and fall tearing Trump
down, Clinton had planned to close
the campaign on a more positive
note. She talked about giving
Americans something to vote for,
not just against.
And with public opinion polls
showing her with solid leads in
most battleground states, she start-
ed talking about healing divisions
and unifying the country after the
Trump s campaign rhetoric has
always been dark, full of searing
depictions of a crumbling nation,
and he has not been shy about
going negative on Clinton. He rou-
tinely calls her "Crooked Hillary"
and "the most corrupt person ever
to run for the White House."
But Trump, too, has stepped up
his broadsides after the last weeks
of October handed him a pair of
potentially potent political gifts:
the projected "Obamacare" pre-
mium rate hike and FBI Director
James Comey s letter revealing that
agents are reviewing emails that
may be connected to Clinton s pri-
Campaigning Tuesday in Penn-
sylvania and barely mentioning
Clinton s name, the typically fiery
Republican somberly warned that
electing Clinton would "destroy
American health care forever."
Clinton s and Trump s closing
campaign advertisements reiterate
the race s sharply negative tone.
Meanwhile, Trump s ads rein-
force his message that the country
risks doom if it doesn t change
directions by electing him. "Hillary
Clinton will keep us on the road
to stagnation," a narrator says in
one of his latest ads. (AP)
