Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton today trained her guns on Republican rival Donald Trump for engaging in divisive rhetoric and said the US Commander-in-Chief has to defend the country and not embarrass it.
“Our next President has to bring our country together so we can all share in the promise of America. We should be breaking down barriers, not building walls. We’re not going to succeed by dividing this country between us and them,” 68-year-old Clinton said in her victory speech at West Palm Beach in Florida.
“When we hear a candidate for President call for rounding up 12 million immigrants, banning all Muslims from entering the United States, when he embraces torture, that doesn’t make him strong, it makes him wrong,” Clinton said after scoring impressive wins in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Ohio.
Clinton exuded confidence that she was on her way to win the party’s presidential nomination.
“Although we’re waiting for final results in Illinois and Missouri, we know we will add to our delegate lead to roughly 300 with over two million more votes nationwide,” she said.
“We are moving closer to securing the Democratic Party nomination and winning this election in November. Because of all of you and our supporters across the country, our campaign has earned more votes than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican,” she said.
