Hillary Clinton is turning up the heat on her presumed general election rival, Donald Trump. In an exclusive interview with CNN, Thursday, Clinton said Trump is “not qualified” to be President of the United States.
Clinton questioned Trump’s rhetoric and his ability to handle foreign policy challenges, and she noted that he often makes “irresponsible, reckless, dangerous comments.” Clinton said Trump’s statements go beyond the occasional misstep or saying something “off the cuff.”
The former Secretary of State said Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigrants would make fighting terrorism difficult.
Trump responded to Clinton’s comments on his website, writing that Clinton “has bad judgement and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country’s history.”
He also turned to Twitter to air out his feelings about Clinton.
Clinton said Trump’s comments against Muslims, especially, send a “message of disrespect” to our allies.
