ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, campaigning in Atlantic City said, "Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be President of the United States." Atlantic City, is the site of some of Trump's biggest corporate projects. Clinton is putting a spotlight on Trump's casino bankruptcies and complaints against him by contractors to argue that the New York businessman cannot be trusted to set economic policy from the White House. Her attack on Trump's business dealings comes as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has blasted her integrity following an FBI report that criticized her use of private email during her tenure as secretary of state. On Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey said the agency would recommend no criminal charges against Clinton for her use of private email servers. But Comey rebuked her for what he said was "extremely careless" handling of classified material on her email servers, and contradicted her claims that she never transmitted or received classified material on that email system. Republican lawmakers criticized Comey for what they saw as lax treatment of Clinton, and on Wednesday, committee chairman Jason Chaffetz, a Republican, announced that Comey will testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday to explain the bureau's "surprising and confusing" recommendation. Clinton has used criticism of Trump's business dealings as a way to illustrate one of her principle campaign themes - that the wealthy real estate developer is only interested in boosting his financial bottom line, and is not concerned about the economic struggles of working Americans. Trump has defended his bankruptcy filings on casinos and other projects as legitimate legal avenues designed to help businesses manage their debts. He tweeted recently that he was "the king of debt."
