Hillary Clinton’s solution to combating terrorism? “Understand” those different from us, apparently including terrorists, right down to the foods they eat.
While speaking Monday at a Baltimore fundraiser for a youth program that sends students to Israel, Clinton lashed out at President Trump and his response to the latest London terrorist attack.
“This is a time for us to reach out to the world,” Clinton said, “to understand more about what is happening. Not just in our own country but indeed across the globe.
“It’s a time for steady, determined leadership, like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London,” she said, referring to Sadiq Khan.
“And it is a time to remember how important our alliances are. … Getting to know one another. Learning about the experiences, the lives, the cultures, the religions, the food,” she said emphatically.
“Putting yourself in another’s shoes, walking in them. It’s even more important that we work together with our allies and our friends and our partners,” Clinton said.
“Yes, to keep us safe, but also to expand our understanding of what we can achieve together.”
Her voice turning stern, Hillary said, “This is not a time to lash out, to incite fear or to use tragedy and terror for political gain.”
Clinton was responding to President Trump’s criticism of Mayor Khan earlier today.
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!

“Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his “no reason to be alarmed” statement. (Mainstream Media) is working hard to sell it!” Trump tweeted.
So, too, is Hillary Clinton, apparently, for it’s not exactly clear what is to be gained by “understanding” the “experiences” and foods of people who mowed down innocents with delivery vans.
