CNN’s Brooke Baldwin steered Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser Stephen Miller away from talking about Hillary Clinton’s intervention in Libya that ultimately led to the terror attack in Benghazi.
Appearing on “CNN Newsroom,” on Thursday, Baldwin asked Miller to respond to Clinton’s allegation that Trump is not qualified to be president.
Miller replied, “We obviously agree with Bernie Sanders that Hillary Clinton isn’t qualified to be president.” (VIDEO: Hillary: Trump Is Not Qualified To Be President)
Pivoting, Miller said, “But I have to say honestly I feel bad for Bernie Sanders supporters, and I’ll tell you why. Thanks to superdelegates, the Democratic Party is on the verge of nominating the most pro-war, pro-Wall Street lawmaker in the modern history of the Democratic Party.”
“I mean, that’s amazing. Think about it. You have a candidate in Hillary who is running on a pro-war platform about what she did in Libya, about what she’s doing in Syria, about the toppling of the Egyptian regime and the military of course took back control, who’s running on a pro-wall Street, pro-war agenda. That’s not the right fit for the Democratic Party or the country.”
“OK, let’s not discuss, I don’t want to argue Benghazi with you. I know there’s a lot of pieces there,” Baldwin said. “Just back though on the question as to whether or not [Clinton] thinks Donald Trump is qualified, can you directly respond to that?”
Miller replied, “Well, like I said, Bernie Sanders is correct and Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be president.”
Baldwin followed up again, “Do you think Hillary Clinton is qualified to be president?”
Laughing, Miller said, “Of course not. See, look at her judgement. Hillary Clinton went to war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton’s decisions in Libya unleashed an operating base for ISIS that will be a scourge of terrorism against the entire Western world. Hillary Clinton’s platform is, I want to start wars in the Middle East and then import all the refugees into the United States and other countries without knowing who they are. That is a recipe for disaster.”
