Donald Trump, “Hillary is pretty close to ‘unhinged'”
Donald Trump boomeranging the negative remarks made against him, calling Democratic Presidential rival Hillary Clinton “pretty close to unhinged” and lacking the temperament to lead the country.
“She’s really pretty close to unhinged,” Donald Trump said. “She’s like an unbalanced person.”
At a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday, Donald Trump reiterated his position that some NATO allies do not pay their fair share of defense and that the United States has to be “prepared to walk away.”
Donald Trump also said the United States has to rethink its alliance with nations who don’t pay their share of defense costs.
“You know, Hillary Clinton came out and said, ‘That’s terrible. He’s not going to stick with our allies.’ We’re going to stick, but once the ally hears her dumb talk, because it’s dumb, why would they ever pay?”
“I always thought I was extremely fit,” he added. “In fact, all of my life I’ve been told, you have the greatest temperament.”
“Let’s say somebody like Hillary Clinton makes this statement, ‘We will never abandon our allies.’ I think those statements are beautiful. I think they’re great. One problem: When you go in and say, ‘We will never ever abandon you, but you have to pay us more money,’ they’re going to say, ‘We’re not going to pay you more money if you’re not going to abandon us.’
“You always have to be prepared to walk,” Donald Trump said. “I don’t think we’d walk. I don’t think it’s going to be necessary. It could be, though.”
Also, Friday Donald Trump announced his economic policy advisory team, said he would deliver an economic policy speech early next week, and endorsed US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan who is seeking his 10th term in Congress.
Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican rival Donald Trump narrowed to less than 3%, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released Friday, down from 8 points Monday.
About 42% of likely voters favored Mrs. Clinton, to Mr. Trump’s 39%, according to the July 31-Aug. 4 online poll of 1,154 likely voters. The poll had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3%, meaning that the results suggest the race is even.
