Presidential Trump Takes Down Hillary

Presidential Trump Takes Down Hillary

The “presidential” Donald J. Trump materialized Wednesday — and not a second too soon.

Speaking at one of his eponymous Manhattan hotels, Trump did not extemporize about a federal judge’s ethnicity nor did he loudly isolate himself from prominent Republicans. Instead, Trump lobbed heavy ordnance at the Hillary Clinton juggernaut.

In a focused, calm, and titanium-tough speech, Trump read well-crafted remarks from a TelePrompTer and defined Clinton as a serial criminal.

Trump thoroughly avoided the effete words uttered by supple GOP leaders and soft Republican standard bearers of yesteryear. Hillary does not merely “mislead” or “dissemble.” Instead, Trump told the truth: “Hillary Clinton,” he said, “is a world-class liar.”

“Just look at her pathetic email and server statements,” Trump continued, “or her phony landing in Bosnia where she said she was under attack, but the attack turned out to be young girls handing her flowers — a total self-serving lie.”

Trump then inserted the shiv and twisted: “Brian Williams’ career was destroyed for saying far less.”

Trump pounded away: “Hillary Clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency.”

The real-estate magnate cited Peter Schweizer’s "Clinton Cash," which describes the Clinton Foundation as the loading dock for bribes that purchased the public benefits that Team Hillary delivered at the State Department.

Trump also chided the Clintons’ staggering lecture fees, which reek like a landfill.

“Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft,” Trump said. “She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund — doing favors for oppressive regimes, and many others, in exchange for cash … Together, she and Bill made $153 million giving speeches to lobbyists, CEOs, and foreign governments in the years since 2001.”

Trump kept hitting: “A foreign telecom giant faced possible State Department sanctions for providing technology to Iran, and other oppressive regimes,” he said. “So what did this company do? For the first time ever, they decided to pay Bill Clinton $750,000 for a single speech. The Clintons got their cash. The telecom company escaped sanctions.

“Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20 percent of America’s uranium holdings to Russia, while nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.”

Regarding stock trader Rajiv Fernando, Trump said, “Hillary Clinton appointed a top donor to a national security board with top secret access – even though he had no national security credentials.”

Indeed, Fernando reportedly bundled $100,000 or more for Hillary’s 2008 presidential bid and has given the Clinton Foundation at least $1 million. Fernando otherwise appeared unqualified among the atomic scientists and military strategists on the International Security Advisory Board.

Trump shrewdly went beyond slamming Hilary as the poster girl for pay-to-play politics. “Everybody does it,” the Left chants as each new Clinton cash-for-favors scheme emerges. Instead, Trump explained how Hillary has been paid off by potentates who shred human rights, slam gay people, and hammer women and girls. Such scandalous behavior should weaken Hillary among liberals.

“Hillary Clinton accepted $58,000 in jewelry from the government of Brunei when she was Secretary of State — plus millions more for her foundation,” Trump observed. “The Sultan of Brunei has pushed oppressive Sharia law, including the punishment of death by stoning for being gay.”

“Hillary Clinton took up to $25 million from Saudi Arabia, where being gay is also punishable by death,” Trump noted. “Hillary took millions from Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and many other countries that horribly abuse women and LGBT citizens.”

Compare Trump’s unforgiving approach to that of the Bush family. Bush and Co. concealed Team Clinton’s vandalism of White House property as they departed in January 2001. Daddy Bush and Bill Clinton then made joint public appearances. This laundered the Clintons’ soiled reputation. Thank you, Bushes.

Trump should deliver policy specifics with equal passion and clarity. Talking a lot less about protectionism and a lot more about robust, market-driven growth would make economic sense and reassure nervous fiscal conservatives.

Can Trump remain single-minded, disciplined, and aim relentless, withering fire straight ahead at crooked Hillary — and not inward at fellow Republicans or sideways at jurists and journalists? If so, Donald J. Trump could defy the odds and get himself elected president of the United States.
