Chris Christie Questions If Hillary Clinton Can Drive American Foreign Policy

Steve Guest Media Reporter

Chris Christie said Hillary Clinton has “done enough damage and it’s time to get her out from behind the foreign policy wheel because she doesn’t belong there.”

Appearing on the “Hugh Hewitt Show” on Monday, Christie argued that both Clinton and Barack Obama “know a lot about inflaming the region by doing what they did with Iran.” (RELATED: Iranian Rioters Storm Saudi Arabian Embassy, Set It On Fire Over Execution Of Cleric [VIDEO])

Responding to Clinton’s criticism of Saudi Arabia where she said, “I think that even our friends who we work with on so many other areas should not be immune from our criticism and our questions about rule of law, about their treatment of minorities, but clearly, this raises serious questions we have to raise directly with the Saudi government… I think this is counter-productive for them…This will inflame the region even more and I think cause even more dissent and more upheaval within Saudi Arabia. So even in the short and medium term, I don’t think it was a smart decision for them to make and I will criticize them publicly about that.” (RELATED: Saudi Arabia Cuts Ties With Iran After Firebombing Of Saudi Embassy)

Hewitt then asked Christie, “Now governor Christie, after screwing up Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, she [Clinton] condemns one of our last remaining allies in the region. Isn’t that astonishing?”

“Well I mean, If you want to talk about inflaming the region, she and the president know a lot about inflaming the region by doing what they did with Iran. That’s done more to inflame the region and cause danger for folks in the region,” Christie argued.

“And now having Iran continuing to play this role in Syria, the fact is that Mrs. Clinton has done enough,” Christie claimed. “She’s done enough damage and it’s time to get her out from behind the foreign policy wheel because she doesn’t belong there.”

Clinton is “a dangerous driver of American foreign policy. She doesn’t know what she is doing. And what she’s causing now is to have us even fewer and fewer friends. Should we be concerned about human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia? Of course we should. And we should have those conversations quietly as friends do,” Christie said.
