Hillary Clinton Has Come Forward to Condemn Trump's Travel Ban

"He must step up and speak."


Chelsea Clinton isn't the only member of her family who's been throwing major shade on Twitter lately.

On Monday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took aim at President Donald Trump via two tweets that condemned him for his travel ban targeting Muslim-majority countries and his silence on the rise of hate crimes in the United States since he was elected.

"With threats & hate crimes on rise, we shouldn't have to tell @POTUS to do his part. He must step up & speak," she wrote, alongside an article from the Kansas City Star about Sunayana Dumala, an Indian immigrant whose husband was shot to death at a bar last week in what police believe might have been a hate crime. (Trump has not issued a statement on the case at this time.)

In a second tweet, Clinton went on to criticize Trump's travel ban, arguing that it did nothing to help security in the United States, but that it instead only further promotes "fear and resentment."

"Trump's own [Department of Homeland Security] confirmed this weekend that the ban doesn't enhance security. But it foments fear & resentment," she wrote, including an article from the Associated Press that confirmed her claims.

The president has not responded to Clinton's tweets at this time.
