Susan Sarandon says Hillary Clinton is 'more dangerous' than Donald Trump

Academy Award-winning actor and ardent Bernie Sanders campaigner Susan Sarandon, spoke out against Hillary Clinton, saying that her presidency could prove “more dangerous” than Donald Trump’s.

In an appearance on The Young Turks, Sarandon criticised Ms Clinton on her foreign policy positions. She also conveyed that she does not take seriously Mr Trump’s sensational promises to build a wall along the southern border and bar Muslim immigration into the US.

“I believe in a way she is more dangerous,” Sarandon suggested, responding to questions about the Clinton campaign calling her Republican rival “dangerous”.

“She did not learn from Iraq, and she is an interventionist, and she has done horrible things … and very callously. I don’t know if she is overcompensating or what her trip is.

“I think we’ll be in Iran in two seconds.”

She continued: “I’m not worried about a wall being built. [Trump] is not going to get rid of every Muslim in this country. ... I don’t know what his policy is. I do know what her policies are, I do know who she is taking money from, and I do know that she is not transparent, and I do know that nobody calls her on it.”

Sarandon also appeared on MSNBC Thursday night deriding the lack of media coverage that is critical of Ms Clinton, calling the federal indictment of the former secretary of state “inevitable”.

“Nobody’s even talking about this indictment. What happens with that?” Sarandon said. “Besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies.”

When reminded that there has not been an indictment, Sarandon responded: “No, but there’s going to be. There’s going to be. I mean, it’s inevitable.”

Sarandon is campaigning on behalf of Sen Sanders ahead of Tuesday’s primaries.

Hillary Clinton gave her most critical speech of Mr Trump during a foreign policy address Thursday afternoon in San Diego.

Clinton and Trump step up war of words

In her speech, she called Mr Trump "temperamentally unfit" to be president, and said his foreign policy consisted of only "bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies".
