Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump is no Longer Funny, He’s Dangerous

Donald Trump has been condemned by Hillary, She called him shameful, dangerous and declared “I no longer think he’s funny”.

Clinton launched her attack on the billionaire Republican front runner during an appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday, sparking loud applause from the audience.

Results of attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris and in San Bernardino, California has been devastating. On account of these events Trump has called for monitoring the mosques and barring Muslims from entering the US.

In the event of NBC’s late night with Seth Meyers Clinton said, ““I think for weeks, you know, you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter and all of that” she added, “But now he has gone way over the line. And what he’s saying now is not only shameful and wrong – it’s dangerous.”

Hillary said that Trump’s rhetoric was harming the nation’s ability to fight the rise of the Islamic State, feeding the group “propaganda” it could use to recruit. Moreover she said “This latest demand that we not let Muslims into the country really plays right into the hands of the terrorists, I don’t say that lightly, but it does. He is giving them a great propaganda tool, a way to recruit more folks from Europe and the United States. And because it’s kind of crossed that line, I think everybody and especially other Republicans need to stand up and say ‘Enough, you’ve gone too far.’ ”

Previously Clinton has criticized proposals of Trump while trying to tie the bombastic views of him to those of the rest of the Republican Party. She Said, “Some of his Republican rivals are saying that his latest comments have gone too far,” she said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Tuesday. “But the truth is many of them have said extreme things about Muslims. Their language may be more veiled than Trump’s but their ideas aren’t so different.”

Some Republicans have been swift to condemn Trump. His rival for the GOP nomination, Senator Lindsey Graham, told the Guardian that “Donald Trump today took xenophobia and religious bigotry to a new level”, while former vice-president Dick Cheney said in a radio interview that Trump’s plan “goes against everything we believe in”.

House Speaker Paul Ryan disavowed Trump’s proposal, saying: “This is not conservatism.”
Despite the backlash Trump’s divisive rhetoric seems to have struck a chord with Republican voters. More Republicans favor his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States than oppose it, according to a poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal. In a New York Times CBS News poll released on Thursday the real estate mogul received support from 35% of Republican primary voters nationally.

The poll also found that seven in 10 likely Republican primary voters believed Trump was well-equipped to confront the threat of terrorism, with four in 10 “very confident” he could respond to the threat.
