After Hillary Clinton on Thursday said that Donald Trump is not qualified to be president, the two presidential candidates launched into a back and forth over the Republican presidential candidate’s proposed Muslim ban and comments in support of using torture.
During an interview on CNN, Clinton criticized Trump’s proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States, as well as other “irresponsible, reckless, dangerous comments.”
Trump then released a statement defending his Muslim ban and arguing that Clinton is unqualified to serve as president.
“The fact that Hillary thinks the temporary Muslim ban, which she calls the ‘Muslim ban’, promotes terrorism, proves Bernie Sanders was correct when he said she is not qualified to be President,” he said in the statement.
“Look at the carnage all over the world including the World Trade Center, San Bernardino, Paris, the USS Cole, Brussels and an unlimited number of other places. She and our totally ignorant President won’t even use the term Radical Islamic Terrorism,” Trump continued. “And by the way, ask Hillary who blew up the plane last night – another terrible, but preventable tragedy. She has bad judgement and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country’s history.”
Clinton fired back at Trump with a tweet mocking the Republican presidential candidate’s work with the Miss USA Pageant.
If you cite supporting torture and hosting pageants as foreign policy “qualifications,” your definition needs work. https://t.co/3JbmzuxEK5
