Hillary: ‘I Don’t Think We Can Take a Risk on a Loose Cannon Like Donald Trump’

Wednesday on CNN, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton said likely presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump was a “loose cannon” and that the country can not “take a risk on” him because she said “loose cannons tend to misfire.”

Clinton said, “Well, you know, I’ve seen the presidency up close from two different perspectives, and I think I know what it takes, and I don’t think we can take a risk on a loose cannon like Donald Trump running our country. You know, Donald Trump has said it’s okay for other countries to get nuclear weapons. I think that’s just downright dangerous. He has said wages are too high. I think we need to have a raise for the American people, raise the minimum wage, get wages back going up. I think when he says women should be punished for having abortions, that is, you know, just beyond anything that I can imagine, I think most women can imagine.”

She added, “He’s a loose cannon. I mean, he’s somebody who has said so many things, and I’m sure he’ll be scrambling and his advisers will be scrambling, but he’s already said all of these things. He says climate change is a Chinese hoax, and I think it’s real. We’ve got to pull the world together to deal with it. So you can go down a long list, some of which he’s tried to bob and weave a little bit, but I think it’s a risk. I think he is a loose cannon and loose cannons tend to misfire.”
