Washington - Hillary Clinton admits that she is not a "natural politician", but says she tries to do the "best I can".

During a Democratic debate in Miami on Wednesday, Clinton was asked about polling that shows many voters think she is not trustworthy.

"Obviously it's painful for me to hear that," Clinton said, adding that she said she takes "responsibility".

Clinton said she has committed herself to helping people and tries to show people that they can count on her. She said she was not a "natural politician," like her husband or President Barack Obama, but she hoped people can "see that I'm fighting for them."

Hillary Clinton got some laughs by saying Donald Trump wants to build "a beautiful, tall wall" that will "magically" be paid for by the Mexican government.

Her comments came in response to a question at on Wednesday's Democratic presidential debate in Miami on whether her vote as a New York senator to build a wall on the Southern border differs from Trump's plan, which she has called ridiculous.

Clinton says responsible legislators chose to improve border security with more agents and some fencing when needed, and as a result the country has lower rates of illegal immigration.
