    Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a "pretend successful" who is only focused on "making himself appear great," an attack on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan.

    In an interview on "Meet the Press" Sunday, Clinton told NBC News' Chuck Todd there is "no evidence [Trump] has any ideas about making America great," adding that as the campaigns move forward "we're going to be demonstrating the hollowness of his rhetoric."

    Clinton attacked Trump for not releasing his tax returns and proving "that he actually has the level of success he claims to have." She also noted the only two returns that have been made public show he hasn’t paid "a penny in income taxes."

    "And yet he goes around talking about make America great. You know, that means paying for our military. That means paying for our roads. That means paying for the VA. If you’ve got someone running for president who's afraid to release his tax returns because it will expose the fact that he pays no federal income tax, I think that’s a big problem," Clinton said.
