Donald Trump and Hilarry Clinton on Tuesday night differed on their national security plans for USA if elected into office.
Clinton accused Donald Trump of insulting America's veterans and pressing dangerous military plans around the globe, seeking to undercut his appeal to service families in Southern voting battlegrounds while Trump declared "our country is going to hell" because of policies made by Clinton
A cool, calms and calculated Donald Trump said he'll ask NATO members to pay their bills and also 'respectfully' ask countries like Saudi Arabia, South Korea, German, Japan and others to pay for the tremendous security the United states provide to them. He also said he will seek to increase number of US troops and develop the U.S missile defense system, saying cyber security is at it's lowest in the U.S and that America needs to be many steps ahead of enemy countries and ISIS.
"His whole campaign has been one long insult to all those who have worn the uniform," Hillary, the Democratic nominee said at the University of South Florida in Tampa.
"We are going to work with our allies, not insult them. We are going to stand up to our adversaries, not cozy up to them. We are going to have real plans, not claims and secret plans,"
Clinton said Trump lagged behind in securing key military supporters compared to past Republican nominees including John McCain and Mitt Romney. She pointed to her endorsements from retired Marine Gen. John Allen and former CIA deputy director Mike Morell.
"They know they can count on me to be the kind of commander in chief who will protect our country and our troops, and they know they cannot count on Donald Trump," Clinton said en route to Florida.
"They view him as a danger and a risk."
Meanwhile Trump vowed to take aggressive action to help veterans at home and confront threats abroad including acts of terrorism from ISIS.
"We are going to solve the ISIS problem," Trump said. "But we have to get back to building our country, because our country is going to hell."
Trump argued that Clinton's email use and her handling of classified information is "disqualifying."
"People who have nothing to hide don't smash phones with hammers. People who have nothing to hide don't bleach -- nobody's even ever heard of it -- their emails, or destroy evidence to keep it from being publicly archived as required under federal law," Trump said
"I just don't think she has a presidential look and you need a presidential look," Trump said of Clinton.
"I'm talking about general, by the way, she says things about me that are horrible," Trump said. "As an example the single greatest asset I have, according to those that know me, is my temperament."
Trump, trying to emphasize his military support, released a letter from 88 retired generals and admirals citing an urgent need for a "course correction" in America's national security policy.
"We believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world," the military leaders wrote.
"For this reason, we support Donald Trump's candidacy to be our next commander in chief."
