In a new campaign ad, Hillary Clinton is spouting off about where GOP nominee Donald Trump obtained his billionaire-wealth.
Among the accusations, Clinton claims that Trump made most of his fortune driving companies into the ground and bankrupting businesses.
Trump's gotten rich driving companies into the ground. What will he do to the U.S. economy?

But, the most notable problem with the ad? It doesn’t mention how Clinton has made her wealth.
Clinton’s wealth largely derives from her life in public office, as First Lady, US Senator and most recently Secretary of State, all which have earned her millions of dollars.
Along with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, Hillary has made her latest money, before running for president, by giving paid speeches to Wall Street and big banks such as Goldman Sachs, where she was paid thousands in speech fees.
