Hillary Clinton: Trump Will Use U.S. Military to Go After Critics

Hillary ClintonDuring a campaign speech in Illinois Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton warned that if Republican rival Donald Trump becomes president, he will use the U.S. military to go after and punish his enemies.

“He says as commander-in-chief he would order our troops to commit war crimes, and insisted they would follow his orders even though that goes against decades of military training and the military code,” Clinton began.

“He’s banished members of the press who have criticized him,” she continued. “Is there any doubt he would do the same as president?”

“Imagine if he had not just Twitter and cable news to go after his critics and opponents, but also the IRS, or for that matter our entire military. Given what we have seen and heard, do any of us think he’d be restrained?” Clinton asked.
