Don't miss this fiery and excellent speech from our next vice president!
Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine on Tuesday assailed Donald Trump in an extensive speech focused on condemning what he sees as the Republican nominee's "disqualifying" foreign policy visions.No more Mr. Nice Guy...I like it!
"He has a bizarre fascination with strongmen and authoritarian leaders in countries that are no allies of the United States, and with respect to our allies, he would toss alliances aside, and says he wants to 'take everything back from the world that we've given to them,'" Kaine charged. "Trump has offered empty promises and divisive rhetoric. Under his leadership, we would be unrecognizable to the rest of the world. And we would be far less safe."
"I trust Hillary Clinton to make these decisions with full knowledge that the life of my son and his friends may be riding on the outcome," Kaine said. "And the prospect of the emotionally volatile, fact-challenged, self-obsessed and inexperienced Donald Trump as commander-in-chief scares me to death."
Kaine touted his experience with the Virginia National Guard when he was governor and on the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, and said that when it comes to military issues like these, "I take it personally" because his son is serving overseas.
Kaine spoke from a teleprompter but veered off script on occasion throughout his wide-ranging speech, knocking the real estate mogul on a slew of national security issues, including Trump mistaking the Quds for the Kurds on Hugh Hewitt's radio show earlier this year, appearing to be stumped by what a nuclear triad was, comments on nuclear weapons, and previous statements on both Iraq and Libya that conflict with his current positions.
