BUZ INVESTORS Trump Budget A “Grave Mistake Hillary Clinton offered harsh criticism of President Donald Trump’s budget proposal in remarks at Georgetown University on Friday.
Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, specifically targeted Trump’s call for sharp reductions in spending on the State Department and foreign aid.

The former Secretary of State cited a letter signed by more than 120 retired generals and admirals last month warning the White House of the negative impacts of cutting funding for the State Department and diplomacy programs.
“These distinguished women and men who have served in uniform recognize that turning our back on diplomacy won’t make our country safer,” Clinton said. “It will undermine our security and our standing in the world.”
The comments from Clinton mark the second time she has recently waded back into politics after delivering remarks earlier in the week critical of the Republican healthcare bill.
