Hillary Clinton took aim at the Trump administration Friday while giving a speech on the importance of women in politics at Georgetown University. The crowd ate it up, standing and chanting "HILLARY!" "HILLARY!" when she stepped onto the stage. "Wow, Let's do that again!" she joked:

  • Trump's budget proposal: "We are seeing signals of a shift that should alarm us all. This administration's proposed cuts to international health, development and diplomacy would be a blow to women and children and a grave mistake for our country... turning our backs on diplomacy won't make our country safer."
  • Trump's relationship with truth: "Studies show — here I go again talking about research, evidence and facts," she laughed, and the crowd roared with cheers in response. "When women are included in peace negotiations, agreements are less likely to fail and more likely to last."
