Transcript for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump on Selection of Supreme Court Justice
We have another audience question Beth Millard. Has a question for both candidates. I'm could eat meat. Perhaps the most important aspect of this election is the Supreme Court justice. But what you prioritize has the most important aspect of selecting a Supreme Court justice. We begin with your two minutes Secretary Clinton thank you where you're right this is one of the most important tech issues in this election. I want to appoint Supreme Court justices who understand the way the world really works who have real life experience. Who let not just ban in a big law firm in May be clerked for a judge and then gotten on the bench but he'll maybe they tried some more cases they actually. Understand what people are up against because I think the current court has gone in the wrong direction. And so I would want to see. The Supreme Court. Reverse Citizens United and get dark unaccountable money out of our politics. Donald doesn't agree with that. I would like the Supreme Court to understand that voting rights are still a big problem in many parts of our country. That we don't always do everything we can to make it possible for. People of collar and older people and young people to be able to exercise their franchise. I want as Supreme Court that will stick with Roe vs. Wade in a woman's right to choose and I want a Supreme Court that will stick with marriage equality. Now Donald as put forth the names of some people that he would consider. And among the ones that he has suggested. Are people who would reverse Roe vs. Wade and Reid first marriage equality I think that would be a terrible mistake and would take us backwards. I want a Supreme Court that doesn't always side with corporate interests I want a Supreme Court that understands. Because you're wealthy you can get more money to something doesn't mean you have any more rights or should at any more rights than anybody else. So I have very clear views about what I want to see you. Time to change the balance on the Supreme Court and I regret deeply that the senate has not done its job. And they have not permitted a vote on the person that President Obama highly qualified person. They've not given him a vote to be able to have the full complement of nine Supreme Court justices. I think that was a dereliction of duty. I hope that they will see. They're way to doing it but if I am. So fortune up has to be president I will immediately. Moved to make sure that we feel that we have 98 Secretary Clinton work. On behalf of our people thank you your at a time mr. trump. Justice Scalia. Great. Judge. Died recently and we have a vacancy. I am looking to appoint. Judges are much in the mold of Justice Scalia. I'm looking for judges and I've actually picked twenty of them. So that people would see highly respected highly thought of and actually. Very beautifully reviewed he just about everybody but people that will respect the constitution. Of the United States. And I think that this is so important to also the Second Amendment which is totally under siege by people like Hillary Clinton. They'll respect the Second Amendment and what it stands for what it represents. So important to me Hillary mentioned something about. Contributions just so you understand so I will have. In my race more than a hundred million dollars putting up my money meaning I'm not taking. All of this big money from all of these different corporations like she's still what I ask is this so. I'm putting in more than by the time it's finished up more than a hundred million dollars invested. Pretty much self funding mind we're raising money for the Republican Party and we're doing tremendously on the small donation 61 dollar average or soon. I ask Hillary why doesn't she make 250. Million dollars by being an office. She is the power for office to make a lot of money. Why isn't she funding had not for a hundred million but what on you put ten or twenty or 25 or thirty million dollars. It's your own campaign its thirty million dollars less to special interest that will tell you exactly what to do. And it would really I think be a nice sign. To the American public why aren't you putting some money and you have a lot of it you've made a lot of it. Because of the fact that you've been in office made a lot of it while you were secretary of state actually so why aren't you putting money at your own campaign just curious. Well thank you very much thank you we're gonna get onto one more question a question about the Supreme Court and I just want to quickly say very quickly I respect the Second Amendment. But I believe there should be comprehensive background checks and we should close the gun show loophole and closed the online loophole and we have we have what are questioning your lives as we possibly can't.
