Last night, Trump chose to talk about his deep admiration and support for Putin.Maybe he did it with a smile. pic.twitter.com/IjcqT5Z4KZ&mdash; Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 8, 2016 After avoiding press conferences for months, Hillary Clinton is now finding them to be quite useful.The Democratic nominee used an airport tarmac availability near her home in New York on Thursday morning to rebound off an uneven performance at Wednesday night&rsquo;s national security forum and call attention to some of Donald Trump&rsquo;s strange blustering at the event, much of which went unchallenged by the moderator.Clinton bored into Trump&rsquo;s praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, his disparagement American generals and his suggestion that America should have taken Iraq&rsquo;s oil, which would have been a violation of international law.&ldquo;What would Ronald Reagan say about a Republican nominee who attacks America&rsquo;s generals and heaps praise on Russia&rsquo;s president?&rdquo; Clinton said. On Trump&rsquo;s musings about stealing Iraqi oil, Clinton said: &ldquo;The United States of America does not invade other countries to plunder and pillage.&rdquo;Clinton sought to contrast some of Trump&rsquo;s shoot-from-the-hip comments with her foreign policy chops, vowing that a Clinton administration would hunt down the leader of Islamic State just as the Obama administration hunted down Osama bin Laden. She announced Michael Chertoff, who was secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, will be joining her at a campaign meeting Friday of top bipartisan security experts to discuss national defense plans.The Trump campaign responded immediately, charging in a statement from spokesman Jason Miller that Clinton had shown she &nbsp;&ldquo;was unable to answer for her terrible foreign policy judgment, mishandling of classified information and claims that the V.A. wait time scandal was overblown&rdquo; at Wednesday&rsquo;s forum. &nbsp;&ldquo;These are the desperate attacks of a flailing campaign sinking in the polls,&rdquo; the statement said.
