RALEIGH, N.C. – Donald Trump went on the offensive Wednesday, and Hillary Clinton will have a chance to respond.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee will hold a rally in Raleigh, N.C., Wednesday afternoon after Trump sharpened his attacks on her during a speech in New York earlier in the day.

In his remarks Wednesday, Trump questioned Clinton’s leadership and foreign policy. His response came after Clinton blasted him during a speech Tuesday in the battleground state of Ohio.

Clinton said Trump lacked the temperament and business acumen to lead the country.

“A few days ago, he said, ‘I’m going to do for the country what I did for my business,'” Clinton said Tuesday. “So let’s take a look at what he has done. He’s written a lot of books about business — they all seem to end at Chapter 11.”

Trump responded by calling Clinton a “world-class liar” and a “corrupt candidate” during his New York speech.

Clinton visited Washington Wednesday morning for a closed-door meeting with Democratic leaders.
