From the woman who brought you "we came, we saw, he died" - Trump is dangerous

In response to an FT article by Demetri Sevastopulo on 3rd June 2016, entitled ‘Trump risks US nuclear war, claims Clinton’

'Hillary Clinton has launched a fierce attack on Donald Trump, accusing her White House rival of pushing a “dangerously incoherent” foreign policy and having a temperament that risked involving the US in a nuclear war. Speaking in San Diego, the former secretary of state (said)…

“He is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility…This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes because it is not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war”'

Hillary Clinton never met a war she didn't like. 

But let's not be too hard on her - death and destruction is more palatable when ordered by a long-serving member of the elite. Although it's true that the guilty don't care who kills them as long as they're American or British, the innocent do take great solace in knowing they are being blown up by someone with knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.
