June 2, 2016 (San Diego) – In a speech on foreign policy today in San Diego,  former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slammed her rival in the presidential campaign, Donald Trump for suggesting  that America should encourage Japan “to get nuclear weapons, and said this about a war between Japan and North Korea—and I quote, `If they do, they do. Good luck, enjoy yourself, folks.’  I wonder if he even realizes he’s talking about nuclear war.”
