"After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes," Trump tweeted this morning, responding to Clinton's appearance on Stephen Colbert's show last night. She drew applause when she said she "thought it was very dark, dangerous — not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering."

Key Clinton quote: "And not call him 'Rocket Man,' the old Elton John song. But to say it clearly: 'We will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves.' But you should lead with diplomacy." (Applause)
