WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on the MSNBC Commander-in-Chief Forum:
“Hillary Clinton is the wrong choice to lead America as commander-in-chief, repeatedly showing poor judgment and failed leadership on critical issues like foreign affairs and the growth of radical Islamic terrorism, and an utter tone deafness on the catastrophe at the VA. Americans need a strong leader who will keep our country safe and secure, not a politician who can’t even say she will make the country safer from terrorist threats. And her shocking claim that not a single American has died in Libya ignores the four brave Americans who fell victim to a terrorist attack on her watch.
“Clinton-backed policies help fuel the growth of ISIS, allowed radical Islamic terrorists to gain a foothold in Africa, and emboldened Russia with a botched ‘reset,’ all of which have left America more vulnerable to growing threats around the world. Our nation cannot afford a third term of this disastrous Obama-Clinton agenda, nor can it trust a candidate who has continued to lie over and over about how she completely jeopardized national security with her reckless mishandling of classified information.
“Tonight Donald Trump promised peace through strength, and will make vigilance and toughness the cornerstone of his national security policy as president.”
