Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein says she believes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton could be worse than presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Trump says very scary things—deporting immigrants, massive militarism and, you know, ignoring the climate,” Stein explained on Democracy Now. “Well, Hillary, unfortunately, has a track record for doing all of those things. Hillary has supported the deportations of immigrants, opposed the refugees—women and children coming from Honduras, whose refugee crisis she was very much responsible for by giving a thumbs-up to this corporate coup in Honduras that has created the violence from which those refugees are fleeing. She basically said, ‘No, bar the gates, send them back.’ You know, so we see these draconian things that Donald Trump is talking about, we actually see Hillary Clinton doing.”
Clinton admitted in 2014 to using her power as Secretary of State to prevent Honduras President Manuel Zelaya from returning to office after he was overthrown in a coup.
Stein also brought up Clinton’s militarism. “And it’s not only the militarism that Trump talks about, it’s Hillary’s massive record of militarism,” she continued.
