Crowd Laughs As Trump Claims He Is Smarter Than Clinton

Donald Trump, in a Wednesday night interview during a “town hall” event on MSNBC, said he is “probably more intelligent than Hillary (Clinton).”

Many of those in the live audience laughed at the Republican presidential candidate’s remark, according to The Hill. The show’s host, Chris Matthews, responded: “Oh, come on.” He then repeated his question: “Are you more hawkish than Hillary or less hawkish?”

Trump declined to answer, explaining that he was unwilling to make a “blanket statement” regarding whether he would be more aggressive than his Democratic rival in deploying military forces. He argued that U.S. troops should not have invaded Iraq in 2002, because the ensuing war led to the rise of ISIS.

The real-estate tycoon also criticized President Obama, alleging that he withdrew forces from the Middle East without having stabilized the region. “When we got out of Iraq, we got out the wrong way,” Trump said. “We set a date, which was terrible. We should have left some soldiers back.”

Trump continues to lead the race for the Republican presidential nomination, though Texas Sen. Ted Cruz maintains that he can still win the contest.
