LAS VEGAS (AP) — Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is telling seniors in swing state Nevada that his running mate Hillary Clinton would better look after their needs than Republican Donald Trump.
Speaking at a retirement community outside Las Vegas, Kaine said Clinton would be “rock solid” in her commitment to preserving Social Security. Trump has vowed to protect the safety net program for seniors, but Kaine said the Republican presidential candidate can’t be trusted because of his past criticism of Social Security. Trump once called the program a “Ponzi scheme” in one of his books.
Kaine said Clinton would be a better president for seniors because of her commitment to improving Medicare and lowering prescription drug prices. Kaine brought along his retired parents to the question and answer event.
