Clinton to meet Ukrainian leader in jab at Trump

Clinton's upcoming meeting with Ukraine's president recalls the Democratic nominee's time as secretary of state, when she warned Obama about the risks of embracing an uprising against then Egyptian dictator Hosni MubarakWhite House hopeful Hillary Clinton will meet Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko later this month, her campaign said Wednesday, hoping to contrast her pro-Kiev stance with Donald Trump’s embrace of neighboring Russia. Officials said Clinton would meet the beleaguered Ukrainian leader, who has struggled to keep his country on track since Moscow annexed Crimea and ramped up support for separatists in the east of the country. Clinton will hope the meeting, on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York, will burnish her foreign policy credentials.
