With EgyptAir getting both likely presidential nominees talking about terrorism, Donald Trump is now lashing out at Hillary Clinton for questioning his foreign policy chops.
And despite being a former Secretary of State, Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that Clinton “knows nothing about national security” and “is grossly incompetent when it comes to national security.”
“ISIS,” Trump said, “sits back and laughs at her.”
Clinton has previously declared that Trump’s rhetoric on Muslims only provides fuel to ISIS. Last week, she said that Trump’s views are “dangerous” and impulsive to America and the world.
Trump pushed back on that assertion by saying, “I’m not impulsive, she was impulsive. She voted for the war and I was against the Iraq war. She’s impulsive.”
He said that what America needs is a “tough tone” and her criticisms of his temperament are irrelevant, especially in this regard on his immediate declaration of terrorism after the EgyptAir crash:
“Why should I be politically correct?” he said, adding that there was nothing wrong with the timing of his statement because “I’m turning out to be right. I’m always right… you’ll see, you’ll see. I’m always right.”
