Hillary Clinton has taken her rhetorical attack on Donald Trump to a new level, asserting that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee will be the most dangerous major presidential nominee in history.
In a preview clip of an interview with CBS anchor Charlie Rose that’s set to air Tuesday, the former secretary of state slammed Trump over what she characterized as “simplistic, easy answers” to major problems.
“No self-discipline, no self-control, no sense of history, no understanding of the limits of the kind of power that any president should impose upon himself,” Clinton said. “He has shown none of that.”

Clinton singled out the real-estate mogul’s proposal to bring “enhanced interrogation techniques.”
“‘Let’s return to torture. And you know what? I will order the American military to commit war crimes,'” she said. “What he has laid out is the most dangerous, reckless approach to being president than I think we’ve ever seen.”
Clinton’s interview with Rose comes as the Republican Party holds its convention in Cleveland this week.
Determined not to let Trump steal the spotlight for the week, the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign are mounting a “counterconvention” in Cleveland and an accompanying media blitz. The campaign includes a major effort to register new voters in key battleground states.
