Clinton: Trump Foreign Aid Cuts Are 'Blow to Women and Children'

Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Thursday launched an inquiry into the matter, citing among his concerns Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's July 5 announcement where he said the Federal Bureau of Investigation found Clinton and her staff were "extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information".

The president's proposal cuts the State Department's budget by 28 percent ($10 billion) and the Environmental Protection Agency's budget by 31 percent, but boosts funding for the military by 29 percent.

The former candidate and first lady received a warm welcome from the students, who chanted "Hillary!"

Imagine that a political leader who speaks from experience, knowledge, empathy, passion, and power about human rights.

"I am thrilled to be out of the woods, in the company of so many inspiring women", she said. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The access was ostensibly granted to facilitate work on Clinton's memoir, but Grassley said he was only able to verify it after the Obama administration left the White House.

As she started to present research that bolstered her argument about bringing women to the table in peace negotiations, she jabbed Trump.

She also said, "Before anyone jumps to any conclusions, I will clearly state that women are not inherently more peaceful than men".

At Georgetown, Clinton cited the important role women have played around the globe in promoting peace, from women who've helped heal sectarian tensions in Northern Ireland to those who ended a bloody civil war in Liberia and women from the Democratic Republican of Congo who've endured "unimaginable abuse and cruelty".

"This administration's proposed cuts in global health, development and diplomacy would be a blow to women and children and a grave mistake for our country", said the Democrat, who ran the State Department from 2009 to 2013.

She expressed outrage at the photo that went viral on Twitter showing not a single woman represented at the White House meeting where Vice President Mike Pence strategized how to cut women's care as part of their failed plan to salvage the Obamacare repeal.

While speaking about women and peace processes, Clinton called the notion women are more peaceful than men a "stereotype". "That belongs in the alternative reality", she said, deftly referencing Kellyanne Conway's infamous "alternative facts" statement.

"A rising tide of women's rights lifts all nations", she declared.

Grassley, rightly so, is baffled - not just by the special privilege for Clinton and six of her staffers. The two-time presidential candidate-and first woman ever nominated for president by a major USA party-has kept a mostly low profile since her stunning loss to Trump in November.

Hillary Clinton seems to be enjoying being in the spotlight again since her defeat in the presidential race late previous year.
