Clinton: 'Whole World Should Be Concerned' About 'Impulsive' Trump

Donald Trump is “the most dangerous president” ever, Hillary Clinton declared this week.

The Independent noted that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee made a similar allegation during the campaign, when she called Trump the “most dangerous” major-party nominee in the nation’s history. Clinton warned during a recent interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corp. that “the whole world should be concerned” because the president “is impulsive, he lacks self-control, he is totally consumed with how he is viewed, with how people think of him.” She also called Trump “vindictive.”

The interview was the second time this month that Clinton lashed out at the president. Following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, she blasted politicians like Trump who get large donations from the National Rifle Association by opposing more restrictive gun-control laws. “Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again,” Clinton tweeted. The NRA endorsed Trump’s presidential bid and contributed $30 million to his campaign, according to the Independent.

Newsweek reported that Clinton told The Sunday Times this week she blames herself for Trump becoming president. “I thought I’d be a damn good president,” she said. “I did not think I was going to lose. I feel a terrible sense of responsibility for not having figured out how to defeat this person. There must have been a way and I didn’t find it.”

Clinton also has accused others of helping Trump win. Her campaign suffered from the FBI’s investigation of the private email server she used as secretary of state, as well as Russia’s efforts to interfere in the race. Misogyny played a role, as well, according to Clinton. She has slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders, her opponent in the battle for the Democratic nomination, for “impugning (her) character” when he reminded voters about her corporate campaign contributions and lavish speaking fees.

Clinton suggested that last year’s Brexit vote, in which the United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union, emboldened the Trump campaign. The leader of the Brexit movement, Nigel Farage, endorsed the Republican candidate. “They thought, ‘Hey, we’ve got this figured out, just tell a really horrible lie over and over again, keep people off balance and make them think that this will, if not make their lives better, make them feel better,’” Clinton recalled. “They voted against modern Britain and the E.U., believing that somehow this would be good for their small village. The same thing played out in my race, but I didn’t think we were so vulnerable. But it turned out we were wrong.”

She continued: “(Farage) came to the U.S. to campaign for Trump and spent half of his remarks insulting me in a very personal way and talking about Trump as the alpha male, the silver-backed gorilla. Think of those images and what that says about what’s acceptable and what’s not.”

Clinton has been doing interviews and giving speeches to promote her recently released book about the 2016 White House race, “What Happened.” She has pledged to be part of the “resistance” opposing the Trump administration, but insists she will never again run for public office.
