Clinton blasts Trump: 'We are great because we are good'

Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump's lewd comments about women that were exposed Friday "represents exactly who he is."

Clinton, noting that she had said in June that Trump is "not fit to be president or commander in chief," pointed out that the Republican nominee's latest outrageous statements came to light after he insulted a slew of other groups during the campaign.

"We've seen him insult women, we've seen him rate women on their appearance, we've seen him embarrass women on Twitter and TV," Clinton said at Sunday night's debate. "But it's not only women."

"Because he has also targeted immigrants, African-Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, and so many others," the Democratic nominee said. "So this is who Donald Trump is."

"This is not who we are," Clinton said, with Trump, looking intently at her on stage. "I want to send the message. ... America is already is great. But we are great because we are good, and we will respect each other."
