Donald has hit back hard against Hillary’s statement. Did he go too far this time or is he right on the money? Give us your thoughts below.
Donald Trump leveled a national-security flamethrower at Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, blaming her for embracing an immigration policy that would drive more Islamic radicals to stage terror attacks like the one from which Orlando, Florida is only beginning to recover.
Clinton, he said, would negligently implement a ‘catastrophic immigration plan’ that would ‘bring vastly more radical Islamic immigrants into this country, threatening not only our society but our entire way of life.’
‘Ignorance is not bliss,’ he said in a half-hour speech at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
‘It’s deadly. Totally deadly.’
Trump castigated the former secretary of state for comments she made in November 2015 during a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.
‘Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary,’ Clinton said then. ‘Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.’
‘That is Hillary Clinton,’ Trump said, hammering her for her response to the weekend’s bloodbath at a gay nightclub where more than four dozen people list their lives to a man who pledged allegiance to the ISIS terror army.
‘The days of deadly ignorance will end, and they will end soon’ if he is elected president, Trump pledged.
Clinton’s response on Monday was equal parts gun control and a motherly embrace of America’s gays and lesbians.
‘She says the solution is to ban guns. They tried that in France,’ Trump poked, referring to last year’s terror attacks in Paris. ‘One hundred thirty people were brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in cold blood,’ he said.
‘Her plan is to disarm law-abiding Americans, abolish the Second Amendment and leave only terrorists … with guns.’
‘She wants to take away Americans’ guns and then admit the very people who want to slaughter us,’ Trump boomed, reading from a teleprompter. He pledged to meet with the National Rifle Association, the powerful lobby that has endorsed him, to ‘discuss how to make sure Americans have the means to protect themselves in this age of terror.’
