'Honest Abe never lied': Trump mocks Clinton for citing Lincoln at debate

Those e-mails included excerpts from her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street entities, in which she dismisses Americans' concerns about a "rigged" financial system, says bankers are best equipped to be their own regulators, expresses a desire for free trade in the hemisphere, and asserts that it is often necessary for political leaders to take one position in public and another one in private. Clinton said during the debate Sunday that she had made the remark at the time after seeing the Stephen Spielberg-directed film, Lincoln. That's the good thing that's a big difference between Abraham Lincoln and you. "That's the difference between Abraham Lincoln and you", Trump told Clinton.

"Look, I respect his children", she said. As for "a public and a private posture", though, he said simply that politicians "all have those".

She described Lincoln's strategy as being: 'trying to convince some people he used some arguments, convincing other people he used other arguments'.

And finally, I think - I believe in evidence-based decision making.

Trump pounced, saying Clinton had been "caught in a total lie". (Actually, Lincoln lied quite a bit.) But then he saved her.

Clinton cited the recent conclusion by the US intelligence community that Russian Federation was behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee. That's a big difference'. "And I think that is something that as a mother and a grandmother is very important to me".

"We have never in the history of our country been in a situation when a foreign power is working so hard to influence the outcome of the election", she said. 'Maybe there is no hacking'.

"I will say this about Hillary: She doesn't quit", he said. But I don't know Putin. "That's one I haven't seen", he said, referring to her use of Lincoln to justify the comment. I know - I know about Russian Federation, but I know nothing about the inner workings of Russian Federation.
