Transcript for Clinton Touts National Service Agenda While Taking a Few Shots at Trump
And you may have noticed that my opponent and I have different views. About. Well nearly everything when it gets right down to it. Not just about what makes America great because I think America already is gray. Okay you. But about what we should do to make it even greater. And about that basic question. Of how progress happens at all. My opponent believes in what I call eight strongman approach. He stood on that stage. At his convention. And describe a hopeless. Broken nation. I'm sorry I'm looking at you I don't see that. And. That in no way resembles the strong vibrant America I know. And and here's what he sat he said. I alone can fix it. I alone. Well we've learned that. That's his way if one person getting supreme power and exercising it ruthlessly. That's why he admires dictators like Vladimir Putin's a much. And finally I want to create a new means for people to serve in serious. Meaningful ways without a full time commitment. Now americorps is a full time commitment to peace -- full time commitment the armed forces are at full time commitment that the armed forces. Has another model the reserves. Right. It gives people the chance to make a high impact contribution while still. Building careers and pursuing their dreams in other ways. So let's do something like that. In the civilian space. Let's call it the national service reserve. Okay. Here's the idea. If you joined the national service reserve. You will receive some basic training is like you would in the military reserves. And then when your city or state need you you'll get the call. Now I don't think you'll hear anything about this from my opponent. And you know what. I think that's a shame. Because national service has always been a bipartisan bill. And. Cars president Kennedy started the peaceful. President George H. W. Bush created. The white house office of national service. And both president George W. Bush and President Obama have been huge champions of service. This should be something that we all can get behind. And when you. Listen to what's being said in this campaign. It can be. Discouraging right. It can seem hard to find any common ground to that makes it even more important. That we come together. Wherever and whenever we can.
