On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton spent the morning in Harlem where she met with Rep. Charles Rangel at Make My Cake Bakery. She then held a rally at the famed Apollo Theater in the early afternoon. After being introduced by New York Senator Charles Schumer, Clinton delivered a speech in which she criticized the Republican presidential candidates for being “in over their heads” on national security. She also called out her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders for a number of his plans saying that while they share many of the same goals, her proposals are more realistic and more likely to get passed than his. She spoke about a number her platform topics including heath care, the economy, and the importance of the 2016 election. Referring to New York City, she added, “This is a city that likes to get things done. And that’s what we want from our president too.” A full video of her speech is below.
While in New York City, Clinton attended two fundraisers. The first was a reception held at the home of Ruth Porat and Anthony Paduano. The second event was hosted by LGBT for Hillary at Capitale in New York City. As with all private events, they were closed to the press.
