Clinton declares Trump a 'threat' to US democracy

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. On May 3, Clinton declined to answer directly when asked by MSNBC whether Trump was qualified to be commander in chief, although Clinton said the New York billionaire “has given no indication he understands the gravity of the responsibilities” that go with the job.
