ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton says presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump "doesn't seem to actually care about making America great so much as he seems to care about making himself look great." Speaking at a rally in Buena Park, California on Wednesday (May 25), Clinton again accused him of having cheered on the 2008 housing market crash. Clinton said Trump's response was, "profiting off working people losing their homes would be a quote 'good result.'" Clinton's campaign released an ad with audio that the presumptive Republican nominee recorded in 2006 for his now-defunct Trump University venture. Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, in remarks on a "bubble burst," said: "I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy" property and "make a lot of money." Clinton's campaign and her surrogates used the recording to argue that she would take better care of the U.S. economy. Clinton is seeking to blunt the inroads that Trump has been making with voters in crucial states such as Florida and Ohio. Trump defended his comments on Tuesday evening at a rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico, saying buying when the housing market was down showed smart dealmaking skills that he would bring to the White House. "I'm a businessman, that's what I'm supposed to do," Trump said. "I feel badly for everybody. What am I going to do? I'm in business."
