On Thursday, Hillary Clinton delivered a major foreign policy speech in San Diego, California. The speech was her first in a series of five days of campaigning across the state. The central message of Clinton’s speech was that Republican nominee Donald Trump is a danger to America’s domestic and foreign policies. The speech was full of one liners and attacking Trump’s policies and character. “Donald Trump’s ideas are not just different, they are dangerously incoherent. They’re not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies,” she told the crowd of supporters. She went after Trump’s “thin skin”, his “dangerous” policies, his Twitter rants, and his history with foreign leaders saying, “He praises dictators like Vladimir Putin and picks fights with our friends, including the British prime minister, the mayor of London, the German chancellor, the president of Mexico and the pope.”

Clinton then spoke about her experience as First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State. She covered a few of her platform points, but her primary argument is that the 2016 election is about a choice of “two very different visions” of America’s future. “One that’s angry, afraid and based on the idea that America is fundamentally weak and in decline. The other is hopeful, generous, and confident in the knowledge that America is great, just like we always have been,” she said. A video of Clinton’s speech is below.
