Hillary Obliquely Responds to Trump’s Attack on Her Faith: ‘As We Methodists Say…’

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton weathered all manner of attacks from Republican rival Donald Trump today, but in her first campaign rally since Trump’s Wednesday morning diatribe, it was a different attack that she responded to first. In a meeting with evangelical leaders this week, Trump publicly questioned Hillary’s faith, and without mentioning Trump’s name, Hillary made a point of expressing her faith early in her speech in Raleigh, North Carolina Wednesday afternoon:

It’s rooted in the values that I learned from my family and my faith. We are all in this together, and we have a responsibility to lift each other up. As we Methodists like to say, “Do all the good you can to all the people you can in all the ways you can,” and that’s absolutely true for our children.

Hillary Clinton actually does have a well-documented history with religion that has drawn suspicion from some on the left due to her membership in a DC religious group called The Fellowship.

Clinton eventually did get around to mentioning Trump by name, but quickly pivoted to her own economic vision:

Donald Trump offers no real solutions for the economic challenges we face. He just continues to spout reckless ideas that will run up our debt, and cause another economic crash.

Hillary will be joined on the stump next week by fellow Trump attacker Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who will campaign with Clinton in Ohio.
