U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gestures to supporters at the IBEW union hall in CommerceBy Amanda Becker WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Hillary Clinton, seeking to dampen Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's growing appeal with working-class voters, on Tuesday accused him of having cheered on the 2008 housing market crash. Clinton's campaign released an ad with audio the presumptive Republican nominee had recorded in 2006 for his now-defunct Trump University venture. Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, said of a "bubble burst" that "I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy" property and "make a lot of money." Clinton's campaign and her surrogates have seized on the recording to argue that she would take better care of the U.S. economy.
