Trump reacts to Huma-Weiner split: ‘Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent’

Published

on

Donald Trump reacted to news that Huma Abedin had split from her husband by accusing her boss of sloppily handling classified information.

Abedin announced Monday that she was separating from Anthony Weiner after he sent a sexually explicit text message, which showed their young son sleeping nearby, to another woman.

Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, issued a statement shortly afterward saying that Abedin, a longtime Hillary Clinton aide and vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign, had made a wise decision, reported the New York Times.

“I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him,” Trump said.

He then suggested that Clinton or Abedin had shared classified information with Weiner, who resigned from his seat in the U.S. Congress in 2011 after another sexting scandal.

“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” Trump said. “Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”

On Monday, President Donald Trump denied allegations that he extorted the president of Ukraine for information about Joe Biden. “It’s a ridiculous story,” Trump said during an appearance at the United Nations.

The controversy emerged after an anonymous whistleblower in the intelligence community logged a complaint with their agency about improper behavior by the president on a phone call with a foreign leader. “It’s a partisan whistleblower,” the president added.

Previously, the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had traveled to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. Critics worry that during a conversation with the president of Ukraine about rooting out corruption in his country, Trump suggested he offer information about Biden in exchange for funding.
