Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is suggested that Donald Trump should be denied national security briefings after he attempted to incite violence against Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Boxer tweeted:
Given his threats of violence, Donald Trump has forfeited his right to top secret briefings.

Given the fact that Trump told his supporters that assassinating Hillary Clinton is a viable option if she wins the White House, I would expect the calls for Trump to be denied national security briefings to grow louder by the minute.
Nothing about Trump’s behavior suggests a man who can be trusted with a top secret national security briefing. Trump doesn’t appear to be stable enough to be trusted with classified information.
Republicans tried to claim that Hillary Clinton should be denied national security briefings because of her emails, but Donald Trump could be facing FBI and Secret Services investigations into his death threat against Hillary Clinton.
For the safety and security of the United States of America, it is obvious that Sen. Boxer is correct. Donald J. Trump should be denied all national security briefings through the remainder of the presidential campaign.
