Fiorina says Clinton wants beatable Trump as Republican presidential nominee.

Coverage of the Saturday night Democratic debate has focused on Bernie Sanders’ apology to Hillary Clinton for his staff’s poor judgment in viewing her campaign’s proprietary data.WASHINGTON – Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a “liar” Sunday for asserting ISIS is using him as a recruitment tool, and also bashed the Democratic front-runner for a prolonged bathroom break during last night’s debate. “She couldn’t even get back on the stage.Shortly after the Democratic presidential primary debate on Saturday night, Senator Bernie Sanders’s campaign announced that he had outpaced Barack Obama’s record for the number of contributions in a presidential race, with more than 2.2 million donations.One of the statement’s that got the most attention, and criticism, during Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate was Hillary Clinton’s assertion that “we now finally are where we need to be” in Syria.

WASHINGTON – Republican Donald Trump is “a big Christmas gift wrapped up under the tree” for Hillary Clinton because he couldn’t beat the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner in a general election, Carly Fiorina said Sunday. “I am the lump of coal in Mrs.Both Republican presidential candidates ripped into Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton during appearances on political talk shows Sunday morning — a day after Clinton took part in her party’s third debate.

Jeb Bush pounced, along with many others on the right, to call Clinton out on the assertion, given that ISIS still holds a lot of territory in Syria, and given the recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. “We have a strategy and a commitment to go after ISIS, which is a danger to us as well as the region, and we finally have a U.N. Donald Trump can’t beat Hillary Clinton.” Clinton desperately hopes she can run against Trump, Fiorina said, because “I will reveal to the American people again and again the ‘Clinton way.’” Fiorina, 61, the only woman among major Republican candidates, criticized Clinton’ foreign policy strategy after Saturday’s debate between the three remaining Democratic presidential candidates. “She’s gotten every single foreign policy challenge wrong, and no, Mrs.

Fact-checkers have so far found no evidence of the allegation being true. “He is becoming ISIS’ best recruiter,” Clinton said of the billionaire businessman and former Atlantic City casino tycoon, who has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. to protect the country from terrorism. “They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.” “It’s nonsense. This fits with the strategy she argued for during the debate — going after ISIS and trying to bring an end to the regime of Bashar Assad simultaneously. It’s just another Hillary lie,” the real estate mogul said. “She lies like crazy about everything — whether it’s trips where she was being gunned down in a helicopter or an airplane. He found a new opening when Clinton took a break (presumably a bathroom stop) in the middle of the debate Saturday and ABC News returning from a commercial break with her empty podium.

One of the most common attacks by Republicans on what they like to call the “Obama-Clinton foreign policy” is that there is no strategy to defeat ISIS. Fiorina, the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard Co., is running in seventh place in polls of likely voters in Iowa, which will hold its first-in-the-nation caucuses Feb. 1, and eighth in New Hampshire, which holds its primary Feb. 9. And when the debate went to a long commercial break Clinton lost out to Lis Smith, the caffeine-guzzling deputy campaign manager for former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who beat her to the restroom. But she just made this up in thin air.” In 2008, Clinton — then running for president the first time — claimed that she had come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996, when she was first lady.

But after several news outlets disputed the story and a video of the trip showed her walking from the plane with no signs of danger, Clinton said she made a mistake. A top Clinton staffer who was strategically posted outside the bathroom (presumably to avoid these kinds of situations) gave Smith a verbal OK to make a quick pit stop, according to one person familiar with the ladies’ line. In its lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee last week, the Sanders campaign argued a hardship case in seeking to end its suspension to access voter data over a breach. Trump has drawn fire from both Republicans and Democrats alike for his proposed Muslim ban and US. officials have suggested that ISIS could use his comments to recruit members. “I think that my words represent toughness and strength,” Trump told NBC. “Hillary’s not strong — Hillary’s weak, frankly. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill declined to comment for the story, but said there wasn’t a security reason preventing the former secretary of state from sharing a bathroom.

On ABC’s “This Week” moderator George Stephanopoulos challenged Trump for calling Clinton a liar when “fact checkers have called you out on more false statements than other any candidate.” “Oh, I’ll go down that road. Clinton’s proprietary voter file data after a vendor, NGP VAN, accidentally dropped a firewall that kept campaigns from viewing one another’s information.

He once against insisted thousands of Muslims were cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11, where no video evidence had been produced to prove the assertion. Four users associated with the Sanders team conducted searches of the data; information was copied and saved in new folders; and a one-page data summary was exported, according to the party committee and NGP VAN. That’s in addition to calls from Clinton and other candidates on both sides for the technology sector to work with government to blunt ISIS’s online recruitment efforts. An op-ed in the Washington Post last week, co-written by two former foreign policy advisers to the Obama administration, applauded the talks for bringing together countries with major stakes and influence in Syria: Russia, the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey. When the Russians started bombing in Syria recently, they mostly targeted areas held by rebels that the U.S. supports, instead of focusing on ISIS territory.

In the most recent talks, Russia was able to negotiate for a list of which rebel groups were considered terrorists, its justification for targeting them, and which were acceptable negotiators on Syria’s political future.
