Republican presidential Donald Trump asserted on Sunday that Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton had killed “hundreds of thousands of people with her stupidity.”
During a Fox News interview that aired on Sunday, Trump told Chris Wallace that he would beat Clinton in a general election.
“She’s got no strength, she got no stamina. Everything she does is like theatrical,” Trump said as he waved his arms to mock Clinton. “She’s the one that caused all this problem with her stupid policies. You look at what she did with Libya, what she did with Syria, look at Egypt.”
“She was truly — if not ‘the’ — one of the worst secretary of states in this history of the country,” he added. “She talks about me being dangerous, she’s killed hundreds of thousands of people with her stupidity.”
Wallace, however, seemed skeptical about that claim: “What do you mean she’s killed hundreds of thousands?”
Trump argued that the “Middle East is a total disaster” because of Clinton and President Barack Obama.
“She traveled back and forth, but look at all problems,” he opined. “Look at as an example, Iraq, total disaster. They didn’t get us in but they got us out badly.”
“Look at Libya, look at Benghazi. Our ambassador, he wired her five or six hundred times asking for help,” the GOP hopeful insisted. “She’ll take her friend’s call every time.”
“Hillary Clinton doesn’t have the judgement, she doesn’t have the strength or the stamina,” Trump concluded. “She will be a terrible president — and I think I’ll win.”

‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
