Hillary Clinton and Donald trump have clashed on Wednesday over the issue of national security. They argued about how to manage the military and foreign policy in a more complex world.
The forum offered a preview of how the two candidates will present themselves in the country when they appear on stage on September 26 in the crucial first presidential debate. The gap between them will be particularly noticeable when we will focus on Russia and the fight against ISIS.
Clinton has repeatedly criticized trump on the election campaign for his embrace with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But trump is once again praised the Russian leader compared to a President Barack Obama. "Of course, in this system, he was a leader, much more than our President was a leader," said trump.
Trump, in turn, has repeatedly attacked Clinton for her support of the war, saying that she showed poor judgment. Clinton, asked about her voting to authorize the war, said: "I said that my participation in the vote, from my point of view, my mistake," she said.
She added: "I consider force as a last resort, I will do everything in my power to make sure our men and women in the army are fully prepared to perform any tasks."
Trump said at the forum that he would be open to allowing illegal immigrants to serve in the army of the United States - a sharp contrast to his tone during a speech in Arizona last week when he said that he would focus on the deportation of illegal immigrants
