WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton says her Republican rival is insulting veterans with his campaign rhetoric.

The Democratic presidential nominee questioned Donald Trump's readiness and foreign policy expertise for the White House as she campaigned in Tampa, Florida, Tuesday. She said his presidential bid has been "one long insult to all those who have worn the uniform."

Clinton said that "a man who is so wrong about our veterans isn't right to serve as commander in chief."

Clinton attacked Trump for seemingly contradictory plans to combat ISIS, saying he's both promised to send American ground troops into Syria and let Syria become a free zone for the militants.

Both candidates will address national security issues at a forum in New York City scheduled for Wednesday night.
