DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Hillary Clinton makes her first stop in Iowa as Democratic Presidential nominee, after winning February's first-in-the-nation caucus.

Clinton first stopped at Des Moines business Raygun to discuss the importance of new jobs, and then she wrapped up at Lincoln High School.

With 90 days until voters cast their ballots, candidate Hillary Clinton sets out her campaign plans and plans as president.

"I'm crossing the country to improve the lives of the vast majority of Americans," the former Secretary of State said.

"In the first 100 days of my administration we will make the biggest investment in new jobs, good-paying jobs since World War Two," Clinton added.

Hillary Clinton also responded to Donald Trump's comments from earlier in the week.

"We witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments from Donald Trump that crossed the line. His casual cruelty to a gold star family, his casual suggestion that more countries should have nuclear weapons, and now his casual comments inciting of violence," Clinton said.

"If she gets to pick her judges, there's nothing you can do folks. Although, the second amendment people, maybe there is something you can do. I don't know," Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump said.

When asked about his comments, Trump advisers told reporters he was talking about voting and not violence.

"Every single one of these incidents shows us Donald Trump does not have the temperament to be President of the United States," Clinton said.

If elected, Clinton said she hopes to create good-paying jobs to improve infrastructure like bridges, ports, and airports.

She says her plan would add 10.4 million jobs to the United States, which would create more than 100,000 jobs in Iowa.

Clinton says Trump's plan would cut more than 3.5 million jobs nationwide, which would cut 33,000 jobs in Iowa since he outsources much of his own business.

Clinton's next stop will be Warren, Michigan Thursday to talk with working families.
