Donald Trump is now within striking distance of the U.S. presidency. Only one person stands in his way: Hillary Clinton.
On June 2, Hillary threw down the gauntlet in the 2016 presidential race with a brilliant and blistering speech holding Donald accountable for his reckless and ignorant foreign policy.
These words are particularly resonant:
We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren in Donald Trump’s hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America.
Hillary is absolutely right.
Electing Donald Trump is a roll of the dice that could result in global catastrophe.
That sentence is not hyperbole.
On July 27, Donald openly invited Russian hackers to conduct espionage against the U.S. government in order to expose Hillary’s private emails. Former CIA Director Leon Panetta reacted by saying that “Trump’s loyalty to the U.S. is in question.”
In the words of Donald’s Art of the Deal ghostwriter: “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes, there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”
With Donald now the official nominee of the Republican Party, every American who cares about progress, about stability and security, every journalist who cares about the truth, every human being who worries about the future of this planet should take a good long look at Hillary Clinton’s face.
It is the face of the single human on this planet who can prevent a Trump presidency.
Take a look, and act accordingly.
