"His whole campaign has been one long insult to all those who've worn the uniform to protect our most cherished American values," Clinton said. "And a man who is so wrong about our veterans isn't right to serve as our commander in chief."
Clinton cited Trump’s feud with the family of the late Capt. Humayun Khan, a Purple Heart recipient who was killed in Iraq in 2004, and called the Manhattan billionaire “a danger and a risk,” vowing that as president she will “protect our country and our troops.”
The former secretary of state said that Trump has been “all over the map” when discussing how he would combat the Islamic State terrorist group: “He says he has a secret plan to defeat ISIS, but the secret is he has no plan.”
Clinton added that she finds Trump’s stated positions on national security to be "mind-boggling."
"He is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the United States," Clinton said.
