Clinton Slams Trump’s ‘Dangerous’ Comments On Nuclear Weapons In Op-Ed

April 14, 2016 12:20 pm

Hillary Clinton blasted Donald Trump for his “reckless” and “dangerous” attitude toward nuclear weapons in a New York Daily News column published Thursday.

Clinton took the GOP frontrunner to task for his comments that America needed “unpredictability” when it came to nuclear weapons. Clinton argued that a Trump presidency with that type of attitude could “reverse decades of bipartisan consensus.”

“These may be the most reckless statements on national security by any major presidential candidate in modern history,” she wrote.

The former secretary of state went on to tout her record on foreign policy and lay out her plan for dealing with nuclear security and the threat of ISIS getting its hands on a “dirty bomb.”

“As President, I’ll intensify our efforts to safeguard nuclear material and work with our allies to block nuclear proliferation, not expand it,” the column read. “We need to ensure that no terrorist is ever able to threaten our country or our allies with a weapon of mass destruction.”

Clinton concluded her column with a jab at not only Trump, but the rest of the candidates in the presidential race.

“Don’t hold your breath waiting for a similarly detailed plan from Trump or any of the other candidates, ” she wrote. “Our national security is too important to entrust to someone who hasn’t thought long and hard about how to keep us safe.”
