Donald Trump Jr. praised his father’s “common sense” and attacked Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a speech at the RNC Convention on Tuesday night. In reference to the Benghazi scandal, Trump Jr. said, “Secretary Clinton’s state department ignored their request for help on the night in question and in the weeks and months leading up to the attack.” “It was a tragedy and one that would be repeated should she win the election,” he warned.

According to him, his father would be the type of president “who says what needs to be said and not just what you want to hear.” Read more at ABC NEWS.
