ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton raised alarm bells over Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumps foreign policy pronouncements saying, "Trump has even suggested that it is fine with him if more countries get nuclear weapons, for heavens sake." At a campaign event in California she said, "For 70 plus years, Republicans and Democrats we have been trying to keep nuclear weapons out of more countries hands." "You cant talk about nuclear weapons like it is a walk in the park," she said. "He has even said he would sue nuclear weapons against ISIS, which is not even a state," she said. Earlier, U.S. President Barack Obama in Japan accused the real estate mogul and former reality TV impresario of making cavalier comments for provocative effect, and he urged all presidential candidates to take the high road in a boisterous and harsh campaign. Weighing in on the race to succeed him with his strongest broadside yet against Trump, Obama said fellow leaders from the Group of Seven nations "are surprised by the Republican nominee". "They are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements, but they are rattled by them," the president told a news conference on the sidelines of a G7 summit in central Japan. "For good reason, because a lot of the proposals he has made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude, or an interest in getting tweets and headlines, instead of actually thinking through what it is that is required to keep America safe, secure and prosperous and the world on an even keel."
