US Presidency 2016: Trump Rightly Calls Hillary A Devil
16 August 2016
By Dr. Abdul Ruff
After the a tedious season of primaries' campaign to pick the presidential
candidates for the US two party system, now the finalists Republican Donald
Trump and Democratic Hillary Clinton have begun their campaign with the former
calling the latter, former secretary of state, as a known devil.
Donald Trump has also dismissed Barack Obama's time in the White House as a
''disaster'' after the US president said he was not fit to succeed him; ''He's
been weak, he's been ineffective,'' Republican candidate Trump said.
Trump did admit, however, to looking forward to meeting Clinton later this
fall on the debate stage. ''I look so forward to the debate with Hillary, I
look so forward''
Republican nominee Trump has called his Democratic rival Mrs. Clinton the
devil, making her to strike back with similar attribution. At a campaign rally
in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, Trump on August 01 night told the crowd that
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders made a deal with the devil when he agreed to
back Hillary Clinton and help bring his supporters on board for her campaign.
''Sanders is devil himself and he made a deal with the devil,'' Trump said,
adding ''She's the devil. Trump went on to say Sanders and his supporters all
know he made a ''bad deal'' when he endorsed Clinton last month.
Last time Hillary had withdrawn in favor of Obama on agreement that she would
be made the secretary of state and President Obama did keep his word making
her the secretary of state as per mutual understanding to jointly pursue
Zionist and Neocons agendas as the world has seen.
Thus the Manhattan billionaire Trump adds to the barrage of insults like
Crooked Hillary. Trump has linked Clinton to the devil before, saying in the
past that Sanders ''sold his soul to the devil'' but this is the first time he
has been so explicit in this attack.
Of course, Hillary doesn't look like a devil but what she as the foreign
minister of world's only superpower showcased her as an America's
capitalist-imperialist devil, supporting Israeli criminal regime.
But Americans and entire world know much more about Hillary, literally a
Zionist fighting for the criminal causes of Israeli regime and supports the
genocides of besieged Palestinians and including children. In doing so she
indeed behaves a devil.
Last week, Trump was in the midst of criticism from Democrats and Republicans
for his remarks about a US Muslim soldier's parents. Former Republican
candidate John McCain became the latest senior party member to criticize Trump
for his attack on the parents of US Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed
by a car bomb in 2004 in Iraq, at the age of 27. Trump created controversy by
suggesting that Humayun Khan's mother Ghazala Khan had been prevented from
speaking alongside her husband Khizr Khan at the Democratic convention last
week. The soldier's parents told the BBC it was time to stand up to Trump but
he accused them of ''viciously'' attacking him.
Characteristic of openness, in an interview for the Washington Post, Trump
refused to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator John McCain, who are up
for re-election in November. Trump said Obama had been ''the worst president,
maybe, in the history of our country''.
Amid the feuding within Republican ranks, prominent party donor and fundraiser
Meg Whitman has publicly endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton, saying Donald
Trump's ''demagoguery'' had undermined the national fabric. ''To vote
Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I
believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division,'' she
said, ''Trump's unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national
security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more.''. Obama and
Mrs Clinton, his one-time secretary of state, had ''destabilized the Middle
East'' while putting the ''country at risk'' with Mrs. Clinton's use of a
private email server, he said.
Trump has also been condemned for his comments that appeared to back the
Russian annexation of Crimea. But he retorted: ''I believe I know far more
about foreign policy than he [Obama] knows.''Look at Ukraine. He talks about
Ukraine and how tough he is with Russia. In the meantime they took over
Until recently, many Republicans opposed to Trump had stopped short of
supporting Mrs Clinton, saying they would vote for a third party or
''write-in'' candidate. New York Representative Richard Hanna became the first
Republican member of Congress to publicly say he would vote for Mrs Clinton.
''The Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president and he keeps on
proving it,'' Obama said on Tuesday. ''The notion that he would attack a Gold
Star family that made such extraordinary sacrifices… means that he is woefully
unprepared to do this job.''
However, the entire democratic camp, led by Obama-Hillary duo is disillusioned
that Trump, against their expectations, is slowly emerging as the winning
candidate and a disappointed Obama has questioned why Trump's party hasn't
Obama-Hillary duo seems to have used foreign leaders to target Trump. French
President Francois Hollande joined the chorus of criticism, saying that Trump
made people ''feel nauseous''. He warned that a Trump presidential election
victory could herald a very strong turn to the right around the world.
Hillary's performance as foreign minister under President Obama clearly shows
Hillary would be more disastrous than Obama has been at the White House. In
fact, presumably Hillary would be more devastating for the USA and entire
world than Trump.
But then how Trump, if elected the president, is going to perform as being the
sole custodian of White House whose image and prestige Obama tarnished with
his acceleration of terror wars in Afghanistan and Arab world for energy
resources cum routes, remains to be seen.
