Hillary Clinton To Muslims: Ignore Republican Campaign Rhetoric
Hillary Clinton (pictured with Tunesian President Moncef Marzouk) told a Tunesian audience “not to pay attention” to overheated campaign rhetoric that doesn’t reflect U.S. policy.
Speaking at a town-hall style event in Tunisia, the North African nation that sparked the “Arab Spring” revolts, Clinton said the partisan remarks made during campaign events “certainly don’t reflect the United States, don’t reflect our foreign policy, don’t reflect who we are as a people.”
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from a member of her audience who said he was troubled by some of the comments, which he considered anti-Muslim, made by candidates running for president.
“If you go to the United States, you see mosques everywhere, you see Muslim-Americans everywhere. That’s the fact. So I would not pay attention to the rhetoric,” she said.
