Clinton Says Trump Is Being Played By Russia & North Korea

Foreign leaders have “played” President Trump, according to Hillary Clinton.

The former presidential candidate elaborated on this assertion, explaining that Trump's "limited understanding of the world" made it possible.

“He admires totalitarians,” the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee told the New Yorker. “In fact, before this crisis with North Korea, he was praising Kim Jong-Un. He clearly has a bromance toward (Russian leader Vladimir) Putin, whom he lauds as a great leader. He’s being played by the Putins and the Kim Jong-Uns of the world. I’m not even sure he’s aware of that.”

Clinton argued that “everything” Trump does “is in relation to how it makes him feel, and therefore he has little objective distance, which a leader must have.” She added: “Making decisions in the Oval Office requires a level of dispassionate, reasoned analysis. We’ve seen no evidence he’s capable of that.”

Yahoo News noted that Trump once called Kim, who has threatened to attack the United States with nuclear weapons, a “smart cookie” whom he would be “honored” to meet. Several times during last year’s presidential race, Trump heaped praise on Putin. He declared that the Kremlin strongman was a better “leader” than then-President Barack Obama.

That was before U.S. intelligence agencies determined that Putin ordered the cyberattacks on Democratic Party officials that damaged the Clinton campaign. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating allegations that Trump’s associates colluded with Russian operatives in the hacking and other attempts to interfere in the election.

In the New Yorker interview, Clinton slammed Trump as “immature, with poor impulse control, unqualified for the position that he holds, reactive, not proactive, not strategic, either at home or on the world stage.” She said the president “is unpredictable, which, at the end of the description one can give of him, makes him dangerous."

Clinton made a similar comment Thursday night on MSNBC. “This president and some of the people around him pose a clear and present danger to our country,” she told host Rachel Maddow. “I’m hoping that on the really big issues there’s enough authority to be able to restrain and contain the president. That’s what we all have to hope. Any effort to try to contain him, which I know some in the White House and in the broader administration have been trying to do, is especially important when it comes to consequential decisions.”

The former secretary of state argued that Trump is dangerous “domestically, to our institutions of democracy, our self governance, our rule of law; (and) internationally, in so many ways because of the unpredictability, the fact that there is no strategic plan, there’s just a reactive, emotional, visceral kind of behavior.” Clinton criticized the president’s threat to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration program, which prevents the deportation of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as minors.

Clinton has been making television appearances and giving speeches to promote her newly published book about the election, “What Happened.” She wrote that her upset loss was due largely to the FBI’s investigation of the private email server she used while heading the State Department. She also blamed the Russians and her competitor for the Democratic presidential nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
