Tim Kaine made his solo national debut as Hillary Clinton’s running mate at the Democratic national convention Wednesday, sharing his life story and sharpening his attacks on Donald Trump.
The Virginia Senator argued that Trump has not spelled out his plans, unlike Clinton, who has detailed proposals on her campaign website.
“Here’s the thing. Most people, when they run for president, they don’t just say ‘believe me,’” Kaine said, mimicking Trump. “They respect you enough to tell you how they will get things done.”
“Not Donald Trump,” he added. “He never tells you how he’s going to do any of the things he says he’s going to do. He just says, ‘believe me.’ So here’s the question. Do you really believe him? Donald Trump’s whole career says you better not.”
