Hillary Clinton asked why she "isn't 50 points ahead" of Donald Trump in presidential election polling, when she appeared in a video conference, The Washington Post reports.
The Democratic nominee held a video conference to a Las Vegas gathering of the Laborers International Union of North America. She noted her pro-union stances.
"I will fight back against so-called 'right to work.' Right to work is wrong for workers and wrong for America. Now having said all this, why aren't I 50 points ahead, you might ask.
"Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. I need your help to get Donald Trump's record out to everybody. Nobody should be fooled," Clinton says in the video.
The Laborers International Union meeting took place in a hotel owned by Trump. The former secretary of state pointed out that her Republican rival attempted to quash a union organizing campaign at that hotel.
"He proudly declared himself 100 percent right-to-work. He even hired a union-busting firm to break up an organizing campaign at his hotel in Las Vegas, where you are right now," Clinton said.
"My dad was a small businessman. I'm just happy he never did business with Trump," she added.
At another point in her conference, according to the Post, she called on her supporters to sway people they know who support Trump.
"Stage an intervention. Try to talk some sense into them. Lay out the facts. The facts are on our side, about what I've done versus what he's done. Remember, friends don't let friends vote for Trump."
Her GOP opponent answered her question Thursday morning during a phone interview with "Fox and Friends."
“Because she’s terrible,” he said bluntly. “I mean, she’s had a terrible record. Everything she touches is bad... I mean, it’s just a mess. And she’s spending a lot of money and so far it’s not had much of an impact because I guess I’m winning in most of these states and we’ll see what happens in the end, but she is [terrible]."
