Hillary Clinton calls out Trump’s bad leadership: He ‘poses a serious threat to our democracy’
At the final stop for the bus tour that went through Pennsylvania and Ohio after the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton took a swing at Donald Trump’s questionable judgement on policy.
“I want people to have made an informed choice,” Clinton told the crowd, according to the Washington Post. “I don’t want folks to be misled, to listen to the rhetoric and the demagoguery.”
“I think Donald Trump poses a serious threat to our democracy, and it’s going to be up to all of us to repudiate the hatefulness,” she continued.
Trump spent the weekend drowning in scandals, with his attacks on the Khan family, his lack of support from GOP leaders over the Khan battle, indeed both parties spent time attacking Trump over his disrespect of the Khan family, his attacks on the Fire Marshal who saved him from an elevator moments before Trump attacked him, being caught in a lie about the Koch brothers, the Kochs still don’t intend to support him and Trump made a major foreign policy flub showing his lack of knowledge on Ukraine.
Earlier Sunday, Clinton attacked Trump for his comments about the Khans family, telling reporters that his words are part of a pattern. “One doesn’t know where the bottom is,” Clinton said. “It’s hard to imagine anyone who has ever run to be president of the United States saying any of what he said.”
She later denounced Trump’s “attacks on distinguished military leaders” in her speech to the Ohio audience. Saying that his attacks are “insulting the family of a fallen soldier — Captain Khan, an American Muslim who sacrificed his life to protect his unit and other soldiers as a taxi raced toward a base containing a bomb.”
Just a few days out of Philadelphia, Clinton called on the founding documents of the United States of America that established our freedom and liberty.
“When his father spoke at the convention and pulled out a copy of the Constitution, it was so fitting that that happened in Philadelphia, where our country started 240 years ago,” she said. “George Washington, Thomas Jefferson — they addressed different religions, including Islam, that were present in America from the very beginning.”
“I want all of us to stand for freedom and equality and justice and opportunity now and forever,” Clinton said.
