Trump: "The Legacy Of Obama-Clinton Interventions Will Be Weakness, Confusion, And Disarray"


In his first major policy speech on foreign policy since speaking at AIPAC last month, Donald Trump outlined what he characterized as the failures of the Obama-Clinton foreign policy.

Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State for President Obama from 2009-2013.

"America no longer has a clear understanding of it's foreign policy goals. Since the end of the Cold War and the breakup of the Soviet Union, we have lacked a coherent foreign policy," the candidate said.

"We've let our rivals and our challengers think they can get away with anything. And they do," he said. "If President Obama's goal had been to weaken [the United States], he could not have done a better job."

"One day we're bombing Libya and getting rid of a dictator to foster Democracy for civilians. The next day we're watching the same civilians suffer while that country... falls apart."

"Lives lost, massive monies lost, the world is a different place. We're a humanitarian nation. But the legacy of the Obama-Clinton interventions will be weakness, confusion, and disarray. A mess."

"We've made the Middle East more unstable and chaotic then ever before. We've left Christians vulnerable to persecution and even genocide... We have done nothing to help the Christians. Nothing. And we should always be ashamed for that. For that lack of action."

"Our actions in Iraq, Libya and Syria have helped unleash ISIS. And we're in a war against Radical Islam, but President Obama won't even name the enemy. And unless you name the enemy, you will never, ever solve the problem. Hillary Clinton also refuses to say the words 'Radical Islam,' even as she pushes to allow a massive increase in refugees coming into our country."

"After Sec. Clinton's failed, Islamic terrorists in Benghazi took down our consolate and killed our ambassador and three other brave Americans."

"Instead of taking charge that night, Hillary Clinton chose to go home and go to sleep. Incredible. She blamed the whole thing on a video. It was a total lie, proven to be a total lie."

"Our ambassador was murdered and our Secretary of State misled the nation. And by the way, she was not awake to take that call and three o'clock in the morning.

"And now ISIS is making millions and millions of dollars a week selling Libya oil, and you know what? We don't blockade, we don't bomb, we don't do anything about it. it is almost as if our country doesn't even know what is happening. Which could be a fact, and could be true."
