Hillary Clinton went to an area of her expertise today before a group in San Diego and spoke about her strength in foreign policy during her years as Secretary of State. She called Donald Trump’s platform on foreign policy as “not just different but dangerously incoherent.”
Trump has attacked Clinton on economic issues but this month’s NBC/Wall Street Journal poll gives Clinton almost 30 points over Trump in handling foreign policy. Fifty-six percent picked Clinton with only twenty-nine percent choosing Trump.
Clinton is in a hard fought fight with Bernie Sanders this Tuesday for California. She has stated to her crowds that Trump wants to meet with North Korean leader, Kim Jung Un, to reduce Pyongyang’s nuclear program. Trump has criticized NATO and has become a concern to foreign allies with his negative statements against US support to NATO, which he deems too costly.
Clinton went full force standing in front of a background of nineteen US flags. The poll showed Clinton at forty-three percent versus Trump with thirty-three percent as best prepared to be Commander in Chief.
“There’s no risk of people losing their lives if you blow up a golf course deal, but it doesn’t work like that in world affairs,” Clinton told the nearly three hundred guests in the San Diego Balboa ballroom, “The stakes in global statecraft are infinitely higher and more complex than in the world of luxury hotels.”
Clinton maintained her pause as the former Secretary of State and told her audience that she will keep “American security at the heart of my campaign.”
Trump shot back in a tweet, ““Bad performance by Crooked Hillary Clinton! Reading poorly from the telepromter! She doesn’t even look presidential!”
An excerpt from Clinton’s speech was a patriotic note to the recent Memorial Day holiday:
“Because as you know so well, Americans aren’t just electing a President in November, We’re choosing our next commander-in-chief – the person we count on to decide questions of war and peace, life, and death.
And like many across our country and around the world, I believe the person the Republicans have nominated for President cannot do the job.
Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just different – they are dangerously incoherent. They’re not even really ideas – just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies.
He is not just unprepared – he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability, and immense responsibility.”
Clinton is still ahead of Trump in the national RealClear average at a plus 1.5 percent. The Democratic primary race still dilutes Clinton’s national numbers since she faces opponent Bernie Sanders this Tuesday in the June 7 California primary.
