US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s “alter ego” in so many ways, according to an American political analyst and activist.
“In so many ways Donald Trump is Hillary Clinton’s alter ego,”
Myles Hoenig, a Green Party candidate for Congress, told Press TV on Tuesday.
“Although Hillary may never dare to be so publicly racist, anti-feminist, or Islamophobic, she has done in practice what Trump can only scream about.”
“How about a wall that would be so huge that it’ll keep the Mexicans out? In 2006, Senator Clinton voted for the Secure Fence Act. This wasn’t your white picket fence with flower pots. Wasn’t quite neighborly, either,”
“On nuclear weapons, Trump has said he would use them against ISIS [Daesh]. Yet it was Clinton, running for president in 2008 who threatened to ‘obliterate’ Iran if it were to attack Israel. The Republican nominee has spoken quite often showing off his militaristic side. He even went to a military boarding school so knows how to salute,”
he pointed out.
“Clinton on the other hand has promoted and set policies to engage in wars before diplomacy could even take place. To count the number of military actions she has endorsed and pushed would be too long and detailed. Needless to say, Trump talks, Clinton acts,”
the analyst noted.
In a Politico podcast interview on Monday, US Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein said Trump is a moron who would be neutralized by his own party if elected, but Clinton poses a greater threat to America and the world.
“Donald Trump, I think, will have a lot of trouble moving things through Congress,”
“Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, won’t … Hillary has the potential to do a whole lot more damage, get us into more wars, faster to pass her fracking disastrous climate program, much more easily than Donald Trump could do his,”
Hoenig said Stein is right that
“Clinton is far more dangerous. We can see both views on environmental destruction, which they both support. Again, with Trump it’s his words, mostly, but with Clinton it’s her actions.”
He said Trump
“might want to drill the hell out America but she has promoted fracking all over the world, considered one of the most destructive environmental actions one can take- from poisoning ground water to potentially causing earthquakes.”
“Stein is also correct in seeing the political ramifications of both candidates if either were to win. Trump is loathed by Democrats but maybe even not so much as his own party. One wonders if there were to be an impeachment against a President Trump that it wouldn’t be initiated by the GOP! He’s a fool and the top leadership knows that. They also know that four years of him would almost guarantee a lifetime of Democrats afterwards,”
the activist said.
“Clinton on the other hand, much like Obama, would get a Republican agenda through a Congress, whether her party is in a majority or not. The anti-war Obama engaged in more wars of aggression than Bush did, and with Congress’s support,”
“Same goes for his support of bankers over homeowners, police terrorists over average citizens, health insurance industry over patients, etc. Clinton would have a free ride to do all that she has promoted in past positions, regardless of her empty rhetoric on the campaign trail,”
the commentator stated.
“Jill Stein often says when asked if she could sleep well at night if Trump is elected and her response has always been that she wouldn’t sleep well if either of them are elected. We will never know what each will actually do when elected but with both their track records, it is clear that Hillary Clinton is the greater threat to all,”
