Hillary Clinton's National Security Policy Address

Speaking at the Prado at Balboa Park in San Diego to a very enthusiastic audience that clearly was largely military, Hillary made her case for why she, and not Donald Trump should be the next commander-in-chief.

TRANSCRIPT: Hillary Clinton Delivers Major National Security Address

In a major speech on Thursday, June 2, Hillary Clinton painted a clear picture for the American people of the choice they will face this November -- a choice between steady, principled American leadership, and a dangerously uncertain future governed by an unprepared, misguided and temperamentally unfit commander-in-chief.
Transcript of her remarks >>>>

Hillary argued for a smart and principled foreign policy. She framed the contest as between  a fearful America v. a strong confident America. She set goals:  defeat ISIS,  strengthen America, and make sure Iran does not get a nuclear weapon.

Trump isn’t just incoherent; he’s dangerous. He’s not just unprepared; he’s temperamentally unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.
We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren in Donald Trump’s hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America.
We’re not a country that cowers behind walls. We lead with purpose, and we prevail.
Hillary characterized Trump's remarks as rants and outright lies.  She argued for strength at home making us strong in the world and explained how our alliances work to keep us strong.
America’s network of allies is part of what makes us exceptional. And our allies deliver for us every day.
Hillary said, " We're lucky to have two friendly nations on our land borders. Why make one of them an enemy?" She recommended that we embrace all the tools, especially diplomacy and development.
She said we should be firm but wise with our rivals, stand our ground when we must, and find common ground when we can.
She talked about Trump's bizarre fascination with dictators and strong men.
The tools Donald Trump brings to the table—bragging, mocking, composing nasty tweets—won’t do the trick.
Hillary Clinton Retweeted Donald J. Trump
Imagine if he had not just his Twitter account at his disposal when he’s angry, but America’s entire arsenal.
Bad performance by Crooked Hillary Clinton! Reading poorly from the telepromter! She doesn't even look presidential!
Hillary said we must stay true to our values.
"Americans work harder, dreamer bigger, and we never stop trying to make the world a better place."
Speaking of the temperament it takes to be commander-in-chief, she called Trump thin-skinned and quick to anger.
Electing him, she said, would be a historic mistake that would undo decades of work and fuel an ugly narrative about who we are. She said,  "Donald Trump's got America all wrong."
Don’t let anyone tell you that America isn’t great. Donald Trump’s got America all wrong.

Hillary was organized, succinct, instructive, and forceful.  She planted her arguments in the middle of Main Street and centered them on families.  The audience was right with her throughout.  She was serious, candid, and funny and she looked ... well, she looked and sounded presidential!
