Hillary spoke at Stanford University this afternoon.
We can be strong and smart without advocating torture or bigotry.
We live in a complex and dangerous world. We need leadership that’s strong, smart, and steady.
"We need to rely on what actually works, not bluster that alienates our partners and doesn’t make us any safer." —Hillary in CA
Hillary has a three-part plan to defeat ISIS in the Middle East, around the world, and here at home.
"We can’t let fear stop us from doing what’s necessary to keep us safe—nor let it push us into reckless actions that make us less safe."
Slogans aren’t a strategy. Loose cannons tend to misfire. What America needs is strong, smart, steady leadership.
"If Mr. Trump gets his way, it'll be like Christmas in the Kremlin. It will make America less safe and the world more dangerous." —Hillary
America should not be shutting our doors to orphans or applying religious tests for people fleeing persecution. That’s not who we are.
In our fight against radical jihadism, we have to do what actually works. What doesn't work: offensive rhetoric that demonizes all Muslims.
When Republican candidates like Ted Cruz call for treating American Muslims like criminals, it’s not just wrong—it’s counter-productive.
"If I’m president, the United States will not condone or practice torture anywhere in the world." —Hillary in CA
We face serious challenges in the world—but Americans will not turn on each other, turn on our allies, or turn away from our principles.
There were several dignitaries and former officials in the room. Hillary stopped and spent time with them after the speech.
In this speech, Hillary referred specifically to two Republican candidates and their plans. She mentioned proposals by some Democrats, but did not mention Senator Sanders by name. He should afford her the same courtesy. Senator Sanders should stop attacking Hillary in his speeches and stop giving his audiences reasons to boo her. When Hillary mentions him, usually in primary night speeches, it is to congratulate him, not to criticize his policy and plans. donate
