Hillary Clinton criticized the UN speech by President Trump during an interview with Stephen Colbert last night. She called it ‘dark and dangerous’. She tries to say what she would have said in a serious presidential voice but it just comes off as phony. This is exactly why she isn’t president.
This morning, President Trump hit back at Clinton for her criticism of him over his tough talk at the United Nations aimed at stopping North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear arsenal. In an early morning tweet, Trump put the blame on Clinton for the current standoff with Pyongyang:
Did she forget she was Secretary of State and that her husband is responsible for the position we’re in right now with North Korea?
HILLARY MUST HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS: After North Korea renounced adherence to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, Bill Clinton stated of North Korea: “We would overwhelmingly retaliate if the North Koreans were to ever use, to develop and use nuclear weapons. It would mean the end of their country as they know it.”
Here are her comments on the “dark and dangerous” speech:
I thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering. You are both required to stand up for the values of what we believe in: democracy and opportunity, as a way to demonstrate clearly the United States remains the beacon that we want it to be. While, of course, when you face dangerous situations, like what is happening in North Korea, to make it clear, your first approach should always be diplomatic.
What I’d hoped the president would have said was something along the lines of, “We view this as dangerous to our allies, to the region, and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by Kim Jong Un, and not call him “Rocket Man,” the old Elton John song, but to say it clearly, “We will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves. But you should lead with diplomacy. You should lead with the commitment to try to avoid conflict however you can.
HILLARY STILL DENYING SHE LOST…YADA, YADA, YADA…
President Bill Clinton’s assurance that the deal with North Korea is a good one:
HERE’S THE THREAT FROM TRUMP – AWESOME!
TRANSCRIPT OF THE COMMENTS ON NORTH KOREA:
The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based. They respect neither their own citizens nor the sovereign rights of their countries.
If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph. When decent people and nations become bystanders to history, the forces of destruction only gather power and strength.
No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea. It is responsible for the starvation deaths of millions of North Koreans, and for the imprisonment, torture, killing, and oppression of countless more.
We were all witness to the regime’s deadly abuse when an innocent American college student, Otto Warmbier, was returned to America only to die a few days later. We saw it in the assassination of the dictator’s brother using banned nerve agents in an international airport. We know it kidnapped a sweet 13-year-old Japanese girl from a beach in her own country to enslave her as a language tutor for North Korea’s spies.
If this is not twisted enough, now North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of human life.
It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime, but would arm, supply, and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict. No nation on earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles.
The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.
It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future. The United Nations Security Council recently held two unanimous 15-0 votes adopting hard-hitting resolutions against North Korea, and I want to thank China and Russia for joining the vote to impose sanctions, along with all of the other members of the Security Council. Thank you to all involved.
But we must do much more. It is time for all nations to work together to isolate the Kim regime until it ceases its hostile behavior.
The bottom line is that after decades of backing down from the threats from North Korea, we’re seeing a president who is standing strong against them. It’s about time!
