SEAN HANNITY (HOST): You remember, Mr. Trump, they were given the stand down order.
DONALD TRUMP: Sure.
HANNITY: They all risked their careers and they said we're not standing down when Americans are under fire, while Hillary Clinton was debating whether to ask the Libyan government permission and whether or not they could go in uniform. You lost your husband that day, and your husband went to protect people that he knew were under assault at that compound, and he will tell you and others that I have interviewed that your husband saved a lot of people's lives.
I want to remind the audience, though, and Chris, you can talk to this because your husband was a hero. Your husband defied orders, risked his entire career. You did the same thing. You were told to stand down, correct?
