Clinton: Imagine an Angry Trump With America’s Military at His Disposal
During a major foreign policy address, Hillary Clinton spoke of the temperament required to be commander in chief and make decisions like the one that led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
Clinton said she was there when Obama made the call to take Bin Laden out. She then asked the audience to imagine if Trump was in a situation like that.
"Now, imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room, making life-or-death decisions on behalf of the United States. Imagine him deciding whether to send your children or spouses into battle. Imagine if he had not just his Twitter account at his disposal when he's angry, but America's entire arsenal. Do we want him making those calls? Someone thin-skinned and quick to anger, who lashes out at the smallest criticism? Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?"
Clinton said she had faith that the American people would make the right decision. She posed the election as a choice between "two very different visions of America."
"One that's angry, afraid, and based on the idea that America is fundamentally weak and in decline; the other is hopeful, generous and confident in the knowledge that America is great, just like we always have been. So, let's resolve that we can be greater still."
