Hillary Clinton didn’t just deliver a foreign policy speech. Former Sec. Clinton turned Trump into a national joke who can’t be trusted with the presidency.
This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes because it’s not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin. We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren into Donald Trump’s hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America.
This is a man who said more countries should have nuclear weapons including Saudi Arabia. This is someone who has threatened to abandon our allies in NATO. The countries who work with us to root out terrorists abroad before they strike us at home. He believes we can treat the US economy like one of his casinos, and default on our debts to the rest of the world, which would cause an economic catastrophe far worse than anything we experienced in 2008.
He has said he would order our military to carry out torture and the murder of civilians who are related to suspected terrorists, even though, those are war crimes. He says he doesn’t have to listen to our generals, our admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials because he has, “a very good brain.”
He also said I know more about ISIS than the generals do. Believe me. You know what? I don’t believe him. He says climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese. And he has the gall to say that prisoners of war like John McCain aren’t heroes. He praises dictators like Vladamir Putin and picks fights with our friends like the British Prime Minister, the Mayor of London, the German chancellor, the president of Mexico, and the Pope.
He says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the Miss Universe pageant in Russia. And to top it off, he believes that America is weak, an embarrassment. He said we are “a third world country.” And he’s been saying things like that for decades. Those are the words my friends of someone who doesn’t understand America or the world, and they’re the words of someone who would lead us in the wrong direction.
Clinton launched a complete and comprehensive argument against Trump. The argument that she is making goes right to the heart of what Trump is campaigning on. Trump wants people to vote for his personality, so Clinton is exposing his personality as unfit for the White House.
Former Sec. of State Clinton called Trump thin skinned, quick to anger, and described his behavior as lashing out. Clinton’s remarks turned Trump into a national joke who can’t be trusted with the powers of the presidency.
