Hillary Clinton or whoever is running her Twitter account may have experienced a Freudian slip on Thursday regarding Donald Trump’s bid for the highest office in the land.
The tweet, which was sent out in conjunction with Clinton’s foreign policy speech stated: “Donald Trump’s foreign policy is already making Americans less safe, and he’s not even president (yet).”

The Clinton tweet more or less admitted “Donald Trump will soon be president …pretty embarrassing,” wrote Young Conservative’s John S. Roberts.
Clinton and the presumptive GOP nominee traded blows yesterday over who is better qualified to be the next commander-in-chief.
The former secretary of state’s speech included a series of alliterated soundbites aimed at Trump such as, “He is not just unprepared – he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility.”
“Now imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room, making life-or-death decisions on behalf of the United States. Imagine him deciding whether to send your spouses or children into battle,” Clinton later added. “Do we want him making those calls – someone thin-skinned and quick to anger, who lashes out at the smallest criticism? Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?”
Trump shot back during a campaign rally in San Jose, Calif.: “I watched Hillary’s thing today was which was hard… Crooked Hillary said, ‘Oh, Donald Trump, his finger on the button.’ I’m the one that didn’t want to go into Iraq, folks, and she’s the one that stupidly raised her hand to go into Iraq and destabilize the entire Middle East.”
During her speech, Clinton touted her experience in dealing with leaders on the world stage. “Now I’ve gone toe-to-toe with Russia and China, and many other different leaders around the world. So I know we have to be able to both stand our ground when we must, and find common ground when we can,” she said.
The former secretary of state famously brought a reset button in her first meeting with Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov. Russia’s invasion and annexation of part of Ukraine and several militarily aggressive moves towards the United States followed that reset.
China has also made increasingly provocative moves in the South China Sea, building military bases on man-made islands near key shipping lanes.
Fox News National Security Analyst and former Reagan Pentagon official K.T. McFarland listed some of Clinton’s other major foreign policy blunders including:
- Compromising national security with her cavalier treatment of our most classified information.
- Failing to protect or rescue Americans in Benghazi and then lying about it afterwards.
- Clamoring for the Libya war and supporting the premature Iraq withdrawal which enabled the spread of radical Islam far and wide.
Eric Trump stated on Fox News Thursday that he was “livid“ after watching the film “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” over Memorial Day Weekend.
“I think in order to vote in this next election, you should have to watch that movie. I was livid,” he said. “[Clinton] left these guys on a rooftop in the middle of Benghazi getting shot at, having mortars drop on their head because she wouldn’t pick up a phone call in the middle of the night.”
“Her foreign policy has literally cost this country trillions of dollars, thousands of lives,” the younger Trump added. “Her policy is totally disastrous. My father would be an amazing, amazing commander-in-chief.”
