Hillary Clinton hammered Donald Trump’s foreign policy on Wednesday, saying the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s rhetoric endangered Americans, served as a recruiting tool for the Islamic State terrorist group and showed a profound lack of understanding of global affairs.
“Here is where I’m especially concerned about Donald Trump,” Clinton told hundreds of supporters at a union hall rally in Buena Park. “Just in the last few weeks, he’s attacked our closest ally, Britain. He has praised the dangerous dictator of North Korea. He has advocated pulling out of NATO, our strongest military alliance. He has suggested it’s OK with him if more countries get nuclear weapons. He’s even gone so far as to say well maybe he would use nuclear weapons against ISIS, which is not even a state. He has said we should return to torture, and he wants to ban all Muslims from coming into our country, a country founded on religious freedom. And that’s just the beginning.”
Clinton said Islamic State has used Trump’s condemnations of Muslims in propaganda videos, putting Americans and their allies abroad in jeopardy.
