Pro-Clinton Super PAC Twists Trump Quote in TV Spot

The Washington Post

The super PAC Priorities USA released an ad that twists Donald Trump's words in one assertion and used questionable context on a second, according to a story in The Washington Post.

The pro-Hillary Clinton group used comments Trump has made in the past to show voters in five battleground states that Trump is "Unfit to be President," according to the Post.

However, the group employs a quote by Trump that is taken out of context.

From this statement Trump said at a North Dakota campaign stop in May: "There's one more thing we have to do to make America wealthy again. And you have to be wealthy in order to be great, I'm sorry to say it."

The Priorities USA ad used only this part of Trump's quote: "You have to be wealthy in order to be great, I'm sorry to say it."

Individual wealth vs. wealth as a nation, the Post notes.

The pro-Clinton group also parsed Trump's words from 1994 to use this quote in the spot:
"Putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing … and I don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist."

But the entire quote from Trump was this:

"I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing," Trump said. "If you're in business for yourself, I really think it's a bad idea to put your wife working for you. I think it's a really bad idea. I think that was the single greatest cause of what happened to my marriage with Ivana."
