Clinton hits Trump below the belt again

Clinton hits Trump below the belt again

Fiery Democratic presidential front runner, Hillary Clinton has hit Republican favourite, Donald Trump below the belt again by slamming the business mogul turned politician for being too friendly with North Korea and too harsh on European allies.

Hillary hit out at Trump during a foreign policy speech in California on Thursday, designed to paint the billionaire businessman as unfit for the White House.

The speech in San Diego comes as the former secretary of state seeks to shift her attention to the Nov. 8 presidential election against likely rival Trump, and away from Bernie Sanders, the U.S. senator from Vermont.

Trump has said he would sit down with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to try to stop Pyongyang’s nuclear programme and has criticised the decades-old NATO alliance with mainly European nations as obsolete and too costly for the United States.

“It’s important that people understand this is not just about Republican versus Democrat, that Trump is unlike any presidential candidate we have seen and he is fundamentally unfit to be our commander in chief,” Clinton said.

A column this week in DPRK Today, one of North Korea’s state mouthpieces, described Trump as a “wise politician” and Clinton as “thick-headed Hillary.”

“Donald Trump’s statements about North Korea show that he has more interest in making Kim Jong-un like him than backing up our friends and allies in the region,” Clinton said, noting that South Korea has worked with the United States on missile defence.
