Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump cast doubt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “loyalty” to her husband Saturday during a rally speech.
The real estate mogul was telling the crowd of about 5,000 in Manheim, Penn. that Clinton would not stand up for the working class when he made the remark.
“Hillary Clinton’s only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself,” Trump said.
“I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill, if you want to know the truth. And really folks, really, why should she be?”

It’s an escalation of campaign rhetoric coming from the Trump campaign this week regarding the marriage of Hillary and Bill Clinton.
