“We came, we saw, he died.” -Hillary Clinton on the U.S.’s destabilization of Libya and the murder of Muammar Gaddafi.
Democrats like Vice President Joe Biden are making the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t have the restraint required to have access to nuclear launch codes if elected president. And in doing so, they’re ignoring everything we know about their candidate’s warlike tendencies.
“He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about, and guess what? That’s OK sometimes … But I’ve got a military aide with me carrying a briefcase,” Biden said. “No, I mean this sincerely. That briefcase has the nuclear codes in it and, God forbid, if something happened to the president and a decision had to be made, I open it up and the nuclear codes are there. Just imagine giving this guy access.”
Following laughter from the crowd, the vice president continued: “No, no, no, I really mean it! Imagine giving this guy access to the nuclear codes. A guy who says how he’d consider using nuclear weapons. A guy who talks about how may other countries should become nuclear powers. I mean, my God.”
Trump the loose cannon has been a popular meme for the Clinton campaign, as it seeks to present the former top diplomat as the safest bet for U.S. security and international stability.
The political left’s effort to portray Trump as crazy is an obvious effort to help voters forget just how insane Clinton is when it comes to foreign policy.
During her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, Clinton failed to protect American lives abroad, destabilized the entire Middle East, caused massive damage to U.S.-Russia relations and jeopardized classified information for personal gain.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin has even suggested that a Clinton administration could bring about war between the world’s two top nuclear superpowers.
Meanwhile, French politician Marine Le Pen also said Clinton is far more of a threat to international stability than Trump.
“Anything but Hillary Clinton,” Le Pen said in a CNN interview. “Because I think Hillary Clinton means war. Hillary Clinton is devastation. It means world instability.”
“She would be a disaster for my people, leading us to world conflict that would lead to heavy consequences. So anything but her.”
