Hillary: Trump Rooted For Housing Collapse, Thinks Climate Change a Hoax

Hillary: Trump Rooted For Housing Collapse, Thinks Climate Change a Hoax

Democrat Hillary Clinton continued her pounding of Republican Donald Trump in Monday's presidential debate, saying he rooted for the housing collapse in the early 2000s because it would make him richer.

"That was, in large part, because of tax policies that slashed taxes on the wealthy, failed to invest in the middle class, took their eyes off of Wall Street and created a perfect storm," she said. "In fact, Donald was one of the people who rooted for the housing crisis. He said, back in 2006: 'Gee, I hope it does collapse because then I can go in and buy some and make some money.' Well, it did collapse."

"That's called business," Trump interrupted.

But Clinton said the collapse caused 9 million people to lose their jobs and 5 million to lose their homes.

"Now, we have come back from that abyss," she said, "but the last thing we need to do is to go back to the policies that failed us in the first place. "

"Donald thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese," Clinton said later. "I think it's real."

"I do not say that," Trump shot back.

Clinton said investment in solar panels and clean energy were vital, but Trump said his company invested in solar panels, but it was a financial "disaster."
