Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton harshly criticized three countries for directly funding terrorists who are actively seeking to attack the United States and Western Europe. The governments of this trio of nations have contributed between $16 million and $40 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton sharply denounced the three countries — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar — in a speech in Cleveland on Monday. It was her first public speech after Saturday night’s terrorist massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.
“Efforts to defeat ISIS on the battlefield must succeed,” Clinton said. “But it will take more than that.”
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee then identified “three areas that demand attention” if America is to thwart future terrorist attacks. The third of these areas, Clinton said, is the prevention of “efforts by ISIS and other international terrorist networks to recruit in the United States and Europe.”
