Clinton Campaigns in Charlotte, Addresses Baptist Convention


On Thursday, Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd of supporters at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. Clinton began by addressing the North Carolina voting laws saying that, as a country, we should be working to expand early voting, not limit it. She said, “Now North Carolina has been trying to restrict people’s right to vote. The federal court just struck down this state’s voter ID law.” Clinton then spoke about a number of platform points including lowering the debt burden of college students, creating new jobs, increasing the minimum wage, and ensuring that the economy grows and benefits everyone and not only those at the top. A video of Clinton’s speech is below.

In Kansas City, Missouri, Clinton addressed the annual National Baptist Convention. Speaking with the gathered group of ministers from across the country, Clinton quoted scripture and relayed stories growing up in a religious family. Clinton spoke about humility saying, “Our greatest leaders are often the most humble because they recognize both the awesome responsibilities of power and the frailty of human action.” During her speech, Clinton did not mention Donald Trump by name, however, she did speak about her rival saying that he does not understand religion or the African American community. A video of Clinton’s speech is below.
