Hillary Clinton calls proposed Trump budget cuts as ‘unimaginable cruelty’


According to Reuters, Hillary Clinton accosted Trump, stating that his proposal to cut $3.6 trillion in government spending over the next decade is “unimaginable cruelty”.  Although Clinton did not name the Republican POTUS to the graduating class at her alma mater, Wellesley College.  Clinton did mention that the proposed budget cuts weigh heavy over healthcare and food assistance.

"Look at the budget that was just proposed in Washington. It is an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us," Clinton told a crowd at the all-women's college, located in Boston's suburbs.  "It grossly underfunds public education, mental health and even efforts to combat the opioid epidemic."

Officials have stated that the proposed budget will provide tax cuts and stimulate economic growth and produce more private-sector jobs.  Clinton said to graduates, "You are graduating a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason. Just log on to social media for 10 seconds, it will hit you right in the face," she said, citing hoax online reports that her campaign was tied to a Washington pizzeria that operated a child sex ring.

"When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society," Clinton said. "This is not hyperbole, it is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done."

Clinton also urged graduates not to retreat into their own political parties by saying, "Your learning, listening and serving should include people who don't agree with you politically."
