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.
Instead, she advised people to listen instead to President Barack Obama.
“I think that will be a very clear signal to the entire world as to what our values are,” Clinton said.
She added that she is sometimes surprised that people around the world pay more attention to what’s said in U.S. political campaigns than do most Americans.
“I think you have to shut out some of the rhetoric and just focus on what we’re doing and what we stand for and particularly what our president represents,” Clinton said.
That’s what we’ve been saying for years. Focus on what Obama and Clinton and Holder and the rest are doing and what they stand for, particularly Obama. They are not acting in the best interest of America. That’s the fact.
Tens of billions of American taxpayer dollars to
our enemies Muslims worldwide – including the Muslim Brotherhood, while Americans are increasingly unemployed, bankrupt, foreclosed on, and living on food stamps – all at record levels.
