US presidency 2016: Donald Trump calls Hillary Clinton an American devil
-Dr. Abdul Ruff
After the a yearlong, tedious season of primaries’ campaign to pick presidential candidates of the two party system, now the finalists Republican Donald Trump and Democratic Hillary Clinton have begun their campaign with the former calling the former secretary of state as a known devil.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has called his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton “the devil”, taking name calling a step further. At a campaign rally in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Trump on August 01 night told the crowd that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders “made a deal with the devil” when he agreed to back Hillary Clinton and help bring his supporters on board for her campaign, CBS News reported. “Sanders is devil himself and he made a deal with the devil,” Trump said, adding “She’s the devil.
Last time Hillary withdrew in favor of Obama on agreement that she would be made the foreign minister and she was made the secretary of state as per understanding to jointly pursue Zionist and Neocon agendas Trump went on to say Sanders and his supporters all know he made a “bad deal” when he endorsed Clinton last month.
Such language of Trump adds to the barrage of other insults he levels at her regularly the most popular with his supporters being the moniker, “Crooked Hillary”. He did admit, however, to looking forward to meeting Clinton later this fall on the debate stage.
Trump has linked Clinton to the devil before, saying in the past that Sanders “sold his soul to the devil” but this is the first time he has been so explicit in this attack, NBC News reported. Americans know much more about literally Zionist Hillary. “I look so forward to the debate with Hillary, I look so forward,” NBC News quoted the Manhattan billionaire as saying. Last week, Trump was in the midst of criticism from Democrats and Republicans for his remarks about a US Muslim soldier’s parents. Former Republican candidate John McCain became the latest senior party member to criticize Trump for his attack on the parents of US Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed by a car bomb in 2004 in Iraq, at the age of 27. Trump created controversy by suggesting that Humayun Khan’s mother Ghazala Khan had been prevented from speaking alongside her husband Khizr Khan at the Democratic convention last week. The soldier’s parents told the BBC it was time to stand up to Trump but he accused them of “viciously” attacking him.
Donald Trump has dismissed Barack Obama’s time in the White House as a “disaster” after the US president said he was not fit to succeed him; “He’s been weak, he’s been ineffective,” Republican candidate Trump said.
The entire democratic camp, led by Obama-Hillary duo is disillusioned that Trump is fast emerging as the winning candidate and Obama has questioned why Trump’s party hasn’t disowned him.
Characteristic of openness, in an interview for the Washington Post, Trump refused to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain, who are up for re-election in November. Trump said Obama had been “the worst president, maybe, in the history of our country”.
Amid the feuding within Republican ranks, prominent party donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman has publicly endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton, saying Donald Trump’s “demagoguery” had undermined the national fabric. “To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division,” she said, “Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more.”. Obama and Mrs Clinton, his one-time secretary of state, had “destabilized the Middle East” while putting the “country at risk” with Mrs Clinton’s use of a private email server, he said.
Trump has also been condemned for his comments that appeared to back the Russian annexation of Crimea. But he retorted: “I believe I know far more about foreign policy than he [Obama] knows.”Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine and how tough he is with Russia. In the meantime they took over Crimea.”
Until recently, many Republicans opposed to Trump had stopped short of supporting Mrs Clinton, saying they would vote for a third party or “write-in” candidate. New York Representative Richard Hanna became the first Republican member of Congress to publicly say he would vote for Mrs Clinton. “The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president and he keeps on proving it,” Obama said on Tuesday. “The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that made such extraordinary sacrifices… means that he is woefully unprepared to do this job.”
Obama-Hillary duo has used foreign leaders to target Trump. French President Francois Hollande joined the chorus of criticism on Tuesday, saying that Trump made people “feel nauseous”. He warned that a Trump presidential election victory could herald a very strong turn to the right around the world.
Of course, Hillary doesn’t look like a devil but what she as the foreign minister of world’s only superpower showcased her as an America’s capitalist-imperialist devil, supporting Israeli criminal regime.
Her performance under President Obama clearly shows Hillary would be more disastrous than Obama has been at the White House.
But then how Trump, if elected the president, is going to perform being the sole custodian of White House whose image and prestige Obama tarnished with his acceleration of terror wars in Afghanistan and Arab world for energy resources cum routes.
