Hillary Clinton is offering a scathing critique of rival Donald Trump's foreign policy, saying she "doesn't understand people who trash talk about America."

Clinton slammed many of Trump's positions without mentioning his name. She vowed to stand by American allies, fight dictators and listen to the advice of military officials.

Clinton is speaking at the annual conference of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, a non-profit that supports veterans, during a campaign swing through Charlotte, North Carolina.

Recent polling has shown active duty troops backing Trump over Clinton by more than a two to one margin.

Clinton noted her role as the first female presidential nominee of a major political party, saying history-making position "takes a little getting used to even for me." The statement was unusual acknowledgement by Clinton that there may be some voters, particularly within the military, that take issue with a female commander-in-chief.
