Clinton demands an apology from Trump on President Obama’s behalf. According to Clinton, Trump never apologized to the Gold Star Family, the federal judge in Indiana, and the reporter he mimicked.
“But when you talk about apology, I think the one that you should really be apologizing for and the thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 e-mails that you deleted, and that you acid washed, and then the two boxes of e-mails and other things last week that were taken from an office and are now missing.” -Donald Trump
Fact-checking is an agreeable point by both Clinton and Trump. Both candidates believe the other needs to be fact-checked to prove their point is valid.
