HILLARY CLINTON: I don't know that there is one answer.
Hillary Clinton called on President Donald Trump's administration Friday to develop a strategy to end Syria's civil war in a manner consistent with American values, following a United States missile strike on the country late Thursday.
This is a women's empowerment conference.
Former Secretary of State John Kerry insisted he was "gratified" that Trump had attacked Syria, adding that he believes more military action would be a way for the U.S. to produce a peace deal in Syria after years of civil war.
In an interview conducted by The New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof, in front of a thousand-strong crowd at a Lincoln Center theatre, Clinton said she was devastated in the aftermath of the elections. "As I said yesterday afternoon, it is essential that the world does more to deter [Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad] from committing future murderous atrocities".
Given the recent events over the past twenty-four hours, it's expected that Clinton will comment on President Trump's overnight military strike in Syria.Читайте также: 'Centrefold' guitarist J. Geils has passed away at 71
Clinton on Friday urged the administration to "recognize that we can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America's doors to them". Comparing herself with Mary Mallon, who was isolated after she became the first person in United States to be diagnosed with typhoid, Clinton said that public opinion changed when she showed interest in running for the White House.
Clinton did not mention Trump by name when discussing Syria, but concluded that the action in Syria the night before "serve as a reminder that "politics matter enormously".
"I didn't fully understand how impactful that was", said Clinton.
She also took digs at U.S. and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
"Assad has an air force, and that air force is the cause of most of these civilian deaths as we have seen over the years and as we saw again in the last few days", said Clinton at a "Women in the World" summit in New York City.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
