"This just becomes more and more of a reality television show", she said.
"Incident after incident proves again and again: Hillary Clinton lacks the judgment, the temperament and the moral character to lead this nation", he said.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), though, slammed Putin as a figure who should not be admired while simultaneously not slamming the GOP nominee. "It certainly appears that he is conducting in state-sponsored cyber attacks on what appears to be our political system. That is not acting in our interests".
The foreign policy discussion followed a Wednesday night national security forum. "Deal Me In" has since been used as one of Clinton's slogans. She also fleshed out several national security priorities if she is elected, including trying to take out the leader of the Islamic State and vowing to defeat the extremist group without putting US troops on the ground in Iraq or Syria. Trump, also spoke of U.S. policy in Iraq Friday. He vowed to give military leaders a "simple instruction" soon after taking office: "They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS". But he was also harshly critical of the military, saying America's generals have been "reduced to rubble" under Obama.
Pence also defended Trump's comments that "the generals have been reduced to rubble" under the Obama administration, responding to critics that interpreted those words to mean Trump was putting down the USA military. "It's not a serious presidential campaign, and it is beyond one's imagination to have a candidate for president praising a Russian autocrat like Vladimir Putin". "The man has very strong control over a country", Trump said.
Trump, at a rally before thousands of supporters in Pensacola, Florida, laid out an aggressive national security policy with a beefed-up USA military "so strong that nobody's going to mess with us".
"She said, "Look, I'm generalizing here, but a lot of his support is coming from this odd place, that he's given a platform to the alt-right and white nationalists, '" Kaine said in an interview with the Washington Post". Tickets, targeted at lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender supporters, ranged from US$1,200 for a standard seat to US$250,000 or more to be listed as a host. It was the most direct reference that Clinton made to her opponent, Republican nominee Donald Trump, in 30 minutes of remarks about the role of faith in her life and in public service, the first speech in a series that Clinton will make in the next several weeks about the core values that have shaped her policy agenda.
Trump took the stage Friday before a fiery crowd of supporters who had just heard a blistering and vitriolic critique of Clinton's email use from Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and federal prosecutor who loudly argued that Clinton had committed "crimes" and should have been prosecuted.
Indeed, a new CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday found that 45 percent of likely voters back Trump, two points ahead of Clinton, with the rest supporting a couple of independent party candidates. Those attending include Michael Chertoff, who served as Homeland Security secretary under President George W. Bush.
The large number of voters in that position probably won't change until at least after the first presidential debate scheduled for September 26.
That has stood in contrast with statements Trump made past year that he had a "foolproof" plan to defeat ISIS already. But she defended her support for USA military intervention to help oust a dictator in Libya, despite the chaotic aftermath.
Those people, Clinton said, could be open to persuasion.
"Can I say I was surprised?" "And I could see myself working that out".
He also cited what he said was a March 25, 2003, interview.
Donald Trump calls out to supporters in Charlotte, North Carolina. "Maybe he did it with a smile and I guess the RNC would have liked that".
