Hillary Clinton delivered another outstanding speech yesterday in Pittsburgh that once again demolished Donald Trump and showed the way toward a hopeful future for all Americans.
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday offered a point-by-point rebuttal to Donald Trump's plan to combat terrorism, accusing the presumptive Republican nominee of peddling "lies" because "he has to distract us from the fact he has nothing substantive to say."Watch the full speech above and read the transcript of the speech here.
Americans, Clinton argued here, "don't need conspiracy theories and pathological self-congratulations, we need leadership, common sense and concrete plans."
Clinton, who spoke from a union hall, hit Trump for being simplistic on fighting terrorism and, she said, having only two ideas to address the problem: Using the term "radical Islamic terrorism" and banning Muslims and people from countries with terrorism ties from entering the United States.
"First he is fixated on the words radical Islam. Now I must say, I find this strange. Is Donald Trump suggesting that there are magic words that once uttered will stop terrorists from coming after us?" Clinton said, mocking Trump before saying that she believes "it matters what we do, not just what we say."
Trump has repeatedly slammed Clinton and President Barack Obama for not using the term and did so again on Monday.
"If Donald suggests I won't call this threat what it is, he hasn't been listening," Clinton added. "What I will not do is demonize and declare war on an entire religion."
The Clinton campaign also produced an easily-shareable and devastating montage. Are they relentless or what? This is how Trump will be defeated:
Also, don't miss President Obama's strong statement yesterday which touched on most of the same themes. What a team!Your @GOP presidential nominee responding to a terrorist attack with lies and conspiracy theories.https://t.co/TZJmXefmx4— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 15, 2016
