Donald Trump is the ISIS best recruiter in USA: Hillary Clinton

Shares
WASHINGTON: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went after Donald Trump during the Democratic presidential debate Saturday night, saying he is hurting the U.S. fight against terrorism with his anti-Muslim rhetoric. "He is becoming ISIS' best recruiter," she said. "They are going to people, showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists." Trump recently called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, while his comments were extreme, some of his GOP presidential rivals have gone nearly as far. "The first line of defense against radicalization is in the Muslim American community, people who we should be welcoming and working with," Clinton said. "I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump , is sending a message to Muslims here in the United States and literally around the world that there is a clash of civilizations, that there is some kind of Western plot or war against Islam, which then, I believe, fans the flames of radicalization," she added.(Washington Post)
