Clinton Pressed ‘the Button’, Sold $300B in Weapons to Foreign Regimes

While Hillary Clinton fear-mongers about Trump having his finger on the button, it is worth noting that while Clinton was Secretary of State, she approved $165 billion to 20 countries. That is double what the State Department approved under George W. Bush’s entire second term. Clinton also approved another $151 billion of weapons sales in another 16 Pentagon-brokered arms deals. So as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton sold more than $300 billion dollars worth of weapons to other countries - many of them, authoritarian regimes denounced by the State Department for crimes against human rights.
