Hillary Clinton to speak in San Diego Thursday

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — 1:07 p.m. — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be speaking at The Prado in Balboa Park on June 2 at 11:30 a.m., her campaign said in a press release. The speech will focus on foreign policy while taking aim at Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"Hillary Clinton will deliver a major address Thursday in San Diego to make clear the threat that Donald Trump would pose to our national security and to put forth her own vision for keeping America safe at home and leading in the world," the statement read. 

7:10 a.m. — Hillary Clinton will be in San Diego Thursday, according to her campaign. 

She is expected to deliver what her team is calling an important foreign policy speech, according to the Washington Post.

Clinton — focusing her attention on battling presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — aims to convince voters she would make a better Commander-in-Chief than Trump, according to the Post. 

Clinton is the last of the presidential hopefuls to visit San Diego. Her stop comes less than a week before  the California Primary on June 7. Her democratic opposition, Senator Bernie Sanders has been campaigning hard in California and Trump delivered a speech at the San Diego Convention Center last week. Former President Bill Clinton has been in San Diego twice in recent months campaigning for the democratic front-runner.

Specific details regarding Clinton’s stop in San Diego have yet to be released.
