That charge vehemently denied by the Clinton camp.>> They can criticize her for what they say is corruption, or having taken donations to the foundation from people she was dealing with at the State Department.

>> Trump calling for a special prosecutor to look into the foundation's dealings.>> Immediately, immediately, immediately.>> It's a salient attack line that most people can understand. So we're seeing a new Donald Trump this week, if he's able to let this message be the one that drives the day.

00:01:41
>> And the government corruption.>>
