N/Jersey gov­er­nor blames Clin­ton for Boko Haram in­sur­gence

Daily Trust - - AROUND THE WORLD -

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) sug­gested dur­ing a speech at the 2016 Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion on Tues­day that pre­sump­tive Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Hil­lary Clin­ton was to blame for the kid­nap­ping of hun­dreds of Nige­rian school­girls by the ter­ror­ist group Boko Haram.

Christie said “every re­gion of the world has been in­fected with her flawed judg­ment,” cit­ing Clin­ton’s re­sis­tance to adding Boko Haram to the ter­ror­ist watch list.

“What hap­pened be­cause of this reck­less ac­tion by the can­di­date who is the self­pro­claimed cham­pion of women around the world? These ter­ror­ists ab­ducted hun­dreds of in­no­cent young girls two years ago,” Christie said. “These school­girls are still miss­ing to­day.

“What was the so­lu­tion from the Obama/Clin­ton team? A hash­tag cam­paign!” Christie con­tin­ued, ref­er­enc­ing the #BringBack­OurGirls cam­paign that went vi­ral in 2014.
