Washington, D.C. — Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is still technically running a primary campaign, but you wouldn’t know it from her Monday-morning appearance here at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference. In a speech that made zero mention of nearly vanquished rival Bernie Sanders, Clinton repeatedly blasted Donald Trump to raucous cheers from the thousands of pro-Israeli activists in attendance.
“We need steady hands,” she told the crowd packed into Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center, “not a president who says he’s neutral on Monday, pro-Israel on Tuesday, and who knows what on Wednesday, because everything’s negotiable. Well my friends, Israel’s security is non-negotiable!”
It was a clear dig at Trump, who’s promised to remain a “neutral” arbiter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Republican front-runner is slated to speak at AIPAC Monday evening. But if this morning’s session is any indication, he shouldn’t expect a warm welcome. Clinton’s anti-Trump jabs consistently delighted the crowd, triggering loud applause and multiple standing ovations.
