RALEIGH, N.C. — Hillary Clinton pushed back against Donald Trump’s questions about her religion and her competence Wednesday, casting him as a candidate with not much else to say about how he’d lead the nation.

On Tuesday, in a video clip of his remarks, Trump appeared to suggest the public doesn’t know “anything about Hillary in terms of religion.”

Clinton retorted with a quote from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism.

“As we Methodists like to say: Do all the good you can for all the people you can in all the ways you can.”

Clinton also went after Trump for remarks in which he accused her of being “a world class liar” who profited from her tenure at the State Department.

“Think about it. He’s going after me personally because he has no answers on the substance,” Clinton told supporters at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.

Both presumptive presidential nominees are attempting to unite their fractured parties ahead of the nominating conventions.

As Trump works to right his campaign from weeks of turmoil and poor fund-raising, Clinton was addressing her own challenge: drawing the supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, who’s yet to endorse her although on Wednesday he allowed that it’s apparent he will not be the party’s nominee.

Clinton, assured of her party’s presidential nomination, paired her response to Trump with a populist pitch aimed at white, working class voters who backed Sanders and are now being courted by Trump.

She would push an array of economic policies aimed at creating jobs building roads and bridges, offering debt-free college to students and helping those with massive college debt. She also vowed to pressure companies to share their profits with workers and curb the influence of Wall Street.
