Trump Praises His Own Temperament, Audience Laughs

Donald Trump has claimed to have better judgment than rival Hillary Clinton, praising his own temperament as his “strongest asset” in Monday night’s presidential debate. “I have much better judgment than she does. There’s no question about that,” Trump said, as Clinton looked on and smiled. “I also have a much better temperament than she does,” he said. The comment triggered laughter from the audience—and a big grin from Clinton. “I think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament,” Trump said. “I have a winning temperament, I know how to win. She doesn’t win.” The comment prompted a long pause from Clinton as she wrapped her head around his claim, followed by a sigh and an exasperated, “OK.”
