Foreign policy is one of the major aspects a potential presidential candidate show be able to cover flawlessly, otherwise there’s a very big risks of him or her dealing with surprisingly low numbers in polls. After all, Ben Carson is the perfect example when it comes to this.
Still, we’re absolutely convinced that Hillary Clinton wants to avoid such situations, as, during a speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference, she declared that if elected president, she will offer all her support for Israel, says NBC News.
“The U.S. should be very close to Israel!”
“The United States and Israel must be closer than ever, stronger than ever and more determined than ever to prevail against our common enemies,” the Democratic front-runner said.
The organizers of the conference invited every presidential candidate to address the group, the above mentioned source says, and Hillary Clinton used this to attack her opponents in a subtle way, saying that the U.S.-Israeli relationship shouldn’t be ignored at all. Even more, she also said that pulling back U.S. leadership in the Middle East would be “dangerously wrong”.
Indirect attacks targeting Donald Trump
It was obvious that she had Donald Trump on her mind during the speech, referring to him when saying that the United States doesn’t need “a president who says he’s neutral on Monday, pro-Israel on Tuesday and who knows what on Wednesday because everything is negotiable”.
Hillary Clinton promised that, if elected president, one of her first acts would be to invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu to the White House and send top U.S. military officials to Israel.
“We will never allow Israel’s adversaries to think a wedge can be driven between us,” she said, adding that the alliance is “stronger and deeper than headlines might lead you to believe.”
