Trump Reacts to Clinton Criticism: ‘Ask the Family of Ambassador Stevens’ About Her Judgment

"I've made a fortune with debt."

As Hillary Clinton was attacking Donald Trump's history of personal debt in a speech about the economy Tuesday, the Republican candidate and his campaign team were working hard to hit back.

The billionaire businessman leaned into Clinton's criticism of his casinos' bankruptcies, arguing that such financial maneuvers were wise business tactics — which he will also use as president to help alleviate the U.S.'s debt.

Trump, who loves to bestow nicknames on political rivals, dubbed himself the "king of debt" in a tweet immediately after Clinton's speech.

He then put together a string of criticisms of his own, calling Clinton "corrupt," "dangerous" and "dishonest" and alleging that she used her position as secretary of state for personal financial gain.

In one tweet, Trump pointed to Clinton's handling of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans as an example of her "honesty and judgment."

The candidate appeared to have put in place a rapid response team, which was sending instant email reactions to members of the press throughout Clinton’s speech. Among the claims in the emails were that Clinton "takes millions from regimes that brutalize women and LGBT residents," her economic policies "helped create the mortgage meltdown," and that she "laundered money" for her husband, former President Bill Clinton, through grants to laureate education.

And in a video posted to Instagram, Trump said that Clinton was right about only one thing, that he understands debt and knows how to handle it.

"I've made a fortune with debt," he said.
