Jeb Bush: Clinton 'Failed' As Secretary Of State


During one of his first campaign stops in New Hampshire on Tuesday, presidential candidate and former Florida governor Jeb Bush criticized Hillary Clinton’s record as Secretary of State.

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Bush called Clinton “tough” and “smart,” but deemed her job as Secretary of State as a “complete failure.” 

“As a senator, I think she passed -- she has her name on three laws in eight years,” he said. “And as secretary of state, in all honesty, the things she's known for, the reset [with Russia], the pulling back of our commitments, Libya, put aside Benghazi, Libya in general, it turns out it was a complete failure ... I honestly don't know what her successes are."

During the interview, which occurred right before a town hall event in Derry, New Hampshire, Bush also slammed Clinton for not speaking with the press more, considering the amount of scandal surrounding her.

“She needs to answer questions, just like I'm going to do in about 30 minutes,” he said, hinting at the controversy surrounding Clinton's use of personal email during her time as Secretary of State. “She needs to do the exact same thing that candidates running for president do."

Bush, the brother of president George W. Bush and son of president George H.W. Bush, stopped in New Hampshire the day after announcing his candidacy at Miami Dade college in Florida.
