|The Democratic nominee.|
Completely factual and forward-looking confidence. I like it!
Hillary Clinton said Thursday that Bernie Sanders has no chance of becoming the Democratic nominee.And that's not the only news this interview produced:
"I will be the nominee for my party," Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo. "That is already done, in effect. There is no way that I won't be."
Clinton is now fewer than 100 delegates away from the number needed to clinch the nomination, according to a CBS News estimate. Though she stopped short of calling on her opponent in the primary to drop out, Clinton said that Sanders "has to do his part" to unify the Democratic party against Donald Trump's candidacy.
Asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo whether Mr. Trump was qualified to hold the office they both seek, Mrs. Clinton declared emphatically, “No.”...
She cited his proposal to temporarily bar Muslims from entering American borders, his comments about diminishing the United States’ involvement in NATO and his remarks that he would negotiate directly with the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, as evidence of how “unmoored” Mr. Trump is on foreign policy.
This month, when MSNBC asked a similar question, Mrs. Clinton said that Mr. Trump had “given no indication that he understood the gravity of the responsibilities that go with being commander in chief.” But she stopped short of emphatically declaring that he was unqualified.
She did not mince words on Thursday, telling Mr. Cuomo, “I have concluded he is not qualified to be president of the United States.”
Watch today's full interview below. It's a refreshing antidote to the extreme recent negativity from Bernie Sanders and the pervasive sleaziness of Donald Trump.
