People complaining about Trump’s lack of foreign policy experience should be reminded that Hillary’s has been disastrous.
Benghazi was hardly her only scandal during her time at the State Department. During her first days as Secretary of State, she backed the coup against then-Honduras President Manuel Zelya – a democratically elected leader. For months following the coup, peaceful protesters demanded the return of their leader – and were met with a fierce military response.
The nation’s murder rate has since skyrocketed, as have other forms of violence. Honduran activists warned that death squads were targeting the opposition.
By contrast, Trump just has no experience. As seems to be the case, for every horrible thing Trump says, there’s a horrible thing that Hillary Clinton has actually done. Hillary would be a disaster as Commander in Chief, and Trump is laying it on her.
Trump said that Obama and Hillary Clinton had the opportunity to make sure ISIS was “wiped out quickly and effectively,” while it was still in its infancy, but they failed to do so.
“Now it’s a very large group of people and its only getting bigger and if [Clinton] gets in, it will be massive and we won’t even have a country anymore,” Trump said.
“We will be afraid to walk outside.” the nominee added.
“One other thing,” Trump stated, “they are letting tens of thousands of people come in from Syria and nobody knows who these people are and a lot of those people are ISIS.”
Trump also urged that Hillary Clinton is not “tough enough” to take on the terror group.
“She’ll never get tougher,” he said. “It’s not going to happen.”
Following the attack in Turkey on Tuesday, Trump warned that the threat of terrorism is at its highest ever.
Brute military strength is what’s going to ultimately destroy ISIS. Destruction is the only language they know.
Call me sexist, but I don’t think ISIS is going to fear Hillary Clinton very much.
