Tim Kaine: Trump would pose ‘unprecedented danger’ as commander-in-chief

tim kaineU.S. Senator Tim Kaine, who serves on the Senate Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, today said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would pose an “unprecedented danger” to America and the world should he become commander-in-chief.

His comments come as Hillary Clinton delivers a speech in California contrasting her experience protecting national security and helping lead America’s foreign policy agenda with Trump’s alarming positions and rhetoric.

“Donald Trump lacks the experience, values and temperament to lead America on the world stage and keep our country safe,” Kaine said. “Trump has called the U.S. military a ‘disaster’ — no major party nominee seeking the Commander in Chief role has ever spoken about our troops with such disrespect.‎ His proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country flies in the face of America’s tradition of religious freedom, and experts agree that it plays right into terrorists’ hands. While Hillary Clinton’s experience in protecting American prosperity and security at home and abroad proves she is well-prepared to lead this nation, Donald Trump poses an unprecedented danger to our country and the entire world.”
