Bill Clinton: Hillary ‘Understands’ What It Takes to Keep Us Safe

‘She understands what it takes to keep our country as safe as possible, to stop big bad things from happening’

"I like her plans there. I like the fact that in a non-certain world where borders look more like nets than walls and nobody is in total control she understands what it takes to keep our country as safe as possible, to stop big bad things from happening and make as many good things happen as possible. When she was secretary of state, she negotiated those sanctions on Iran and unbelievably got Russia and China to sign off on them. I didn't think she could do that. (Laughter) And they made a difference. And even people that don't like the Iran, Iranian nuclear deal, agree the sanctions were good. The only thing that has survived the estrangement of the United States and Russia from our attempt to do better is something called The New START Treaty negotiated by Hillary's State Department which makes us much safer from the prospect of an accidental or intentional nuclear exchange. In a dangerous world, I think that's a pretty good deal." (Applause)
