INDIANAPOLIS — In her first on-camera response to the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union, Hillary Clinton on Sunday said America "will bounce back from this" economically — and knocked Donald Trump's response to the vote without mentioning him by name.
The country needs leaders "who understand that bombastic comments in turbulent times can actually cause more turbulence and who put the interests of the American people ahead of their personal business interests," Clinton said, without specifically referencing her Republican rival for the presidency.
Speaking at the U.S. Conference of Mayors, she took a swipe at Trump — again, without uttering his name — by saying leaders can't just respond to constituents "with a snarky tweet" because they have to actually "deliver results."
She said the American people and the international community need to be reassured that the U.S. stands with their allies.
"No one should be confused about America's commitment to Europe, not an autocrat in the Kremlin, not a presidential candidate on a Scottish golf course," Clinton said, referencing comments Trump made in Scotland after the U.K.'s vote to leave the EU.
"I love to see people to take their country back," Trump said, in part.
Clinton also lambasted gridlock in Washington, saying Americans were frustrated because they see that politics are standing in the way of action in Congress.
Speaking after Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, who shared with the mayors the lessons he had learned in the past two weeks after the worst mass shooting in recent American history was carried out in his state, Clinton called for gun reform.
"I know we can respect the second amendment and make common sense reforms," Clinton said. "Yet congress is paralyzed. Not a filibuster in the Senate. Not a sit-in in the House could convince the leadership to move forward.And I really believe the American leadership can do better. "
She said another result of the gridlock was the failure on the part of the Senate to pass immigration reform. This week, a Supreme Court split over President Barack Obama's immigration policy, meant to shield more than 4 million people from deportation, essentially squashed it.
She said she doesn't know how Merrick Garland, who has been nominated to the Supreme Court, but blocked from hearings, would have voted, but the refusal of the Senate to hold hearings is another instance in which Congress is skirting their responsibilities in favor of playing politics.
"That refusal to act that is part of what is driving the frustration on the part of so many" in this country, Clinton said.
