Hmmm what was that Obama pet project with solar energy? Hmmm hows that doing?
The choice we face is just as stark when it comes to our national security. Anyone reading the news can see the threats and turbulence we face. From Baghdad and Kabul, to Nice and Paris and Brussels, to San Bernardino and Orlando, we're dealing with determined enemies that must be defeated. No wonder people are anxious and looking for reassurance. Looking for steady leadership. You want a leader who understands we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world and care for our veterans here at home. Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority. I'm proud that we put a lid on Iran's nuclear program without firing a single shot – now we have to enforce it, and keep supporting Israel's security. I'm proud that we shaped a global climate agreement – now we have to hold every country accountable to their commitments, including ourselves. I'm proud to stand by our allies in NATO against any threat they face, including from Russia. I've laid out my strategy for defeating ISIS. We will strike their sanctuaries from the air, and support local forces taking them out on the ground. We will surge our intelligence so that we detect and prevent attacks before they happen. We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. It won't be easy or quick, but make no mistake – we will prevail. Now Donald Trump says, and this is a quote, “I know more about ISIS than the generals do….” No, Donald, you don't.
He thinks that he knows more than our military because he claimed our armed forces are “a disaster.” Well, I've had the privilege to work closely with our troops and our veterans for many years, including as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee. I know how wrong he is. Our military is a national treasure. [clear throat] We entrust our commander-in-chief to make the hardest decisions our nation faces. Decisions about war and peace. Life and death. [clear throat] A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country – including the sons of Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, both Marines. Ask yourself: Does Donald Trump have the temperament to be Commander-in-Chief? [clear throat] Donald Trump can't even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign. [clear throat] He loses his cool at the slightest provocation. When he's gotten a tough question from a reporter. [clear throat] When he's challenged in a debate. When he sees a protestor at a rally. [clear throat] Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. [clear throat] A man you can bait [clear throat] with a tweet is not a man [clear throat] we can trust with nuclear weapons. [clear throat] I can't put it any better than Jackie Kennedy did after the Cuban Missile Crisis. She said that what worried President Kennedy during that very dangerous time was that a war might be started – not by big men with self-control and restraint, but by little men – the ones moved by fear and pride.
