Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lashed out at the temperament of opponent Donald Trump at a news conference on Thursday.

The news conference, focused on international and military affairs, comes after Wednesday night's NBC News "Commander-in-Chief Forum", where Clinton discussed the handling of classified information during her time as Secretary of State, and foreign policy.
 
"Last night was yet another test, and Donald Trump failed yet again," Clinton said. "We saw more evidence that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be commander in chief. He trash-talked American generals, saying they've been 'reduced to rubble.' "
 
Clinton criticized Trump's remarks, saying they disparaged the sacrifices of distinguished service members.
She also homed in on Trump's position on Russian president Vladimir Putin, saying that past presidents, including Republican Ronald Reagan, would be astonished at Trumps position.

"That is not just unpatriotic and insulting to the people of our country, as well as our commander in chief — it is scary," Clinton said. "Because it suggests he will let Putin do whatever Putin wants to do, and then make excuses for him."

Clinton said she will convene a meeting on Friday of bipartisan national security leaders and experts, including Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of Homeland Security, in an effort to send a message to those who would wage attacks on the U.S.

"We should make it a top priority to hunt down the leader of ISIS … and bring him to justice just as we did with Osama Bin Laden," Clinton said.
