When asked if she thinks America is more at risk “here in the United States because of our withdrawal from Afghanistan,” Clinton responded by saying she’s actually “more concerned” about “internal threats” like “what we saw on January 6.”
And I unfortunately have seen so much of that kind of continuing divisiveness and hatred and ideological attitudes about our democracy and each other. So yes, we have to be constantly aware of potential damage, attacks, threats from outside. But I think every American, regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, should be as worried, if not more, right now about what we’re doing to ourselves.
You know, we can take anything, we can overcome anything. We can come back from anything if we’re united. But if we are going to continue to hate each other, scapegoat each other, try to undermine each other, try to go after our institutions, our voting system, uh yeah, then we are putting ourselves at great risk and that’s what keeps me up at night these days.
