    It didn't take long for Hillary Clinton to weigh in on the war of words between billionaires Warren Buffett and Donald Trump.

    Hours after Buffett issued a statement rejecting Trump's assertion that they both use the same tax avoidance strategies, Clinton worked Buffett's denial into her campaign speech on Monday.

    Clinton was paraphrasing Buffett's statement point by point, noting he says he's paid federal income tax since he was 13-years-old and would be happy to release his tax returns, unlike Trump.

    She said her Republican opponent messed with the wrong billionaire: If you're going to call out Buffett, you better be ready to be dealt some "good, ol' fashioned, honest facts."

    Clinton, appearing at Wayne State University, said Trump, at Sunday's debate, "doubled down on his excuse" for a 2005 tape showing him speaking about women in predatory terms.

    At the debate, Trump described the recording as "locker room talk."

    Clinton said: "That is just a really weak excuse for behaving badly and mistreating people."

    The Democratic presidential candidate said Trump spent his time attacking "when he should have been apologizing." She's urging voters to back her candidacy to show that "we are not who he is."

    Clinton is campaigning in Detroit to urge voters to register in Michigan before Tuesday's deadline. 

    Later in the day, Clinton hit Trump with the allegation that he uses Chinese steel in his construction projects.

    Clinton raised the charge while campaigning in Ohio, a rust belt state hit by the downturn of the American manufacturing and fierce competition from overseas.

    Clinton said that "for his talk of putting America first," Trump doesn't support American industry with his products and projects. She said "that kills jobs right in this state."

    Clinton campaigned on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus. She was urging students to register to vote before Tuesday's deadline.

    Citing the Secret Service, the campaign said about 18,500 people attended the outdoor event on campus.
