Just as Hillary Clinton mentioned Donald Trump‘s habit of using Twitter to respond to critics, Trump did just that after the Democratic nominee finished her speech on the last night of the Democratic National Convention. Trump once again hit Clinton for not using the phrase “radical Islam” and blamed her for helping to create the Islamic State.
Trump Hits Clinton on Refugees & Wall Street
In his first tweet after the speech, Trump wrote, “Hillary’s refusal to mention Radical Islam, as she pushes a 550% increase in refugees, is more proof that she is unfit to lead the country.”
This is a frequently repeated claim from Trump and true, as Politifact noted in June. It stems from a September CBS News interview, when she suggested that the U.S. should take in 65,000 Syrian refugees. About 2,000 refugees were admitted to the U.S. in 2015.
In her speech, Clinton said that Wall Street “can never, ever be allowed to wreck Main Street again.” But Trump said that Clinton will never reform Wall Street because of her ties to Wall Street.
Clinton’s Speech Was an ‘Average Scream,’ Trump Tweeted
Next, Trump hit Clinton’s standing with the working class, suggesting that she wants to create a “borderless world.” He also blamed Clinton for having a role in the wars that lead to ISIS.
Lastly, Trump hit Clinton on judgement. “Corruption and devastation follows her wherever she goes,” Trump wrote.
Trump Continued Bashing Clinton Through Friday Morning
On Friday morning, he complained about the media coverage Clinton’s “average” speech received.
In another Friday morning tweet, Trump claimed that Clinton made up facts about him and called her speech a “very average scream.”
Trump also issued a full statement in response to Clinton’s speech:
Hillary Clinton’s speech was an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric. She spent the evening talking down to the American people she’s looked down on her whole life.
Hillary Clinton talks about unity, about E Pluribus Unum, but her globalist agenda denies American citizens the protections to which they are all entitled – tearing us apart. Her radical amnesty plan will take jobs, resources and benefits from the most vulnerable citizens of the United States and give them to the citizens of other countries. Her refusal to even say the words ‘Radical Islam’, or to mention her disaster in Libya, or her corrupt email scheme, all show how little she cares about the safety of the American people.
It’s a speech delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today.
Hillary Clinton says America is stronger together. But in Hillary Clinton’s America, millions of people are left out in the cold. She only stands together with the donors and special interests who’ve bankrolled her entire life. Excluded from Hillary Clinton’s America are the suffering people living in our inner cities, or the victims of open borders and drug cartels, or the people who’ve lost their jobs because of the Clintons’ trade deals, or any hardworking person who doesn’t have enough money to get a seat at Hillary Clinton’s table.
