Eric Trump, son of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, accused Hillary Clinton Wednesday of destabilizing the Middle East while secretary of state.
“Her foreign policy destroyed the Middle East,” Trump told Fox News’ “Hannity.” “It destabilized every single one of those nations.”
Trump was reacting to a televised national security forum where Clinton and Donald Trump both made appearances. During the forum, Clinton defended her decision to intervene in Libya’s civil war and vowed that the U.S. would not send ground troops to help defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kelly Anne Conway, told Hannity that Clinton “was on defense from moment one and she looked it. [Forum moderator] Matt Lauer couldn’t even get to all of her foreign policy failures.”
During his segment of the forum, Donald Trump said that America’s generals have been “reduced to rubble” under President Barack Obama and suggested he would fire some of them if he wins the presidency in November.
“They’ll probably be different generals,” Trump said when asked to square his request for military options against ISIS with his harsh criticism of military leadership.
