WASHINGTON, May 20: Hillary Clinton on Thursday blasted her likely general election rival Donald Trump as a threat to US democracy and declared him unqualified to be president, unleashing some of her toughest criticism yet of the Republican presumptive nominee.
"The threat that Donald Trump poses is so dramatic to our country, to our democracy and our economy," the former secretary of state told CNN in an interview. "I know how hard this job is, and I have concluded he is not qualified to be president of the United States."
She pointed to Trump's recent criticism of top officials of US ally Britain; his stated willingness to meet with North Korea's reclusive dictator; his assessment that NATO is "obsolete"; and his suggestion of opening the door to more countries, such as Japan or South Korea, having nuclear weapons.
Hillary's pugnacity came as she all but declared victory in her nomination battle with Bernie Sanders. "I will be the nominee for my party. That is already done," she said.  She said it was time for Sanders to accept the inevitability of her winning the nomination.
Separately, Donald Trump has said China will "behave" and will be a "friend" of the US under his presidency even as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee asserted that he was not bothered if a trade war breaks out with the Communist trading giant.    ?AFP, PTI
