Windham (New Hampshire), Aug 7 (ANI): Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has launched a blistering attack on Hillary Clinton's character and suggested that the Democratic presidential nominee is not mentally fit to be the president.

Speaking at Windham, New Hampshire Saturday night Trump said the former secretary of state took 'short-circuit'.

"She took a short-circuit in the brain. She's got problems," CNN quoted Trump as saying.

"Honestly, I don't think she's all there," he added.

Trump seized on Clinton's explanation that she "short-circuited" a recent answer about her truthfulness in discussing her email server.

The term "short-circuited" was used as she answered a question on Friday about her recent assertion in a Fox News interview that FBI Director James Comey said she had been "truthful" in discussing her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

Her claim in that interview has widely been debunked as false.

She said, "I was pointing out in both of those instances, that Director Comey had said that my answers in my FBI interview were truthful. That really is the bottom line here," she said, adding, "What I told the FBI, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what I have said publicly. I may have short-circuited, and for that, I will try to clarify."

Trump's attacks on Clinton flowed as he once again referred Clinton as unstable, unbalanced and "totally unhinged.

The act of attacking come as top Republicans have fretted about Trump's repeatedly knocking himself off message by engaging in controversies rather than focusing on Clinton.

The New York billionaire also alleged that the terrorist group ISIS is dreaming of a Clinton presidency.

"Remember, remember, remember ISIS is looking, folks. They dream of Hillary Clinton. They look at her and they say this can't be happening to us. How great is this," he added. (ANI)
