>> You're voting not only for the person you think should be president, but also for the person you think should be Commander in Chief.>> Hillary Clinton's expected to deliver what is being billed by her aides as a major foreign policy speech on Thursday in California. I'm Amanda Becker, a political correspondent for Reuters.
00:00:16
What she's going to be doing is using this speech to really sharply pivot to the general election election and start to draw stark contrast between herself and Trump on foreign policy. He's made a string of statements recently that she's characterized as irresponsible and she wants to start highlighting those differences.
00:00:31
>> He has attacked our closes allies. He has said let's pull out of NATO. He's praised the dictator of North Korea. He's advocated more countries getting nuclear weapons such->> She thinks that foreign policy is one area where she has the clear advantage over Donald Trump.>> And I know how hard these decisions are.
00:00:49
>> Clinton a few weeks ago used the phrase for the first time, thoughtful Republican. And she was gonna be trying to bring them into the fold. What they're trying to do is paint a vision that shows that foreign policy would deteriorate under a Donald Trump presidency and that she's really the one.
00:01:04
I mean, they had a call the other day with retired generals and other people who have been involved in armed services. And I saw surrogate quoted, a news surrogate quoted in a newspaper saying I've never voted for a democrat in my life but I'm going to be voting for Hillary Clinton because I know how foreign policy works and our military works.
00:01:21
>> I mean she lies.>> Clinton will be talking about specific statements that Trump has made related to foreign policy. He has said that countries should pay for their own defense. That we shouldn't be paying to defend other countries. What they're gonna do is be using her long record, including as Secretary of State, and they're gonna say, we're the ones who actually knows how this works.
00:01:41
We have a track record of getting it done. And Donald Trump is, it's just talk.>> I'll also stand my ground. I think that's also what you want in a president, getting things done.
