Hillary Clinton continued her rhetoric against Donald Trump’s policies. During a town hall in Hampton, Va., Clinton put forth her national security ideas, in the wake of the Orlando massacre.
Clinton said if she’s elected, she will make identifying and stopping lone wolves a “top priority.” Her plan is to assemble a team across the government and private sector to help protect the nation from terror.
The Democratic presidential nominee said she would make sure that “law enforcement and intelligence professionals” have all the resources they need to make this happen.
Clinton then turned to the gun control debate that has been reignited since Sunday’s shootings. She said we must stop terrorists from being able to get their hands on “military style” assault weapons which “have no place on our streets.”
“If the FBI is watching you, you should not be able to buy a gun with no questions asked,” Clinton said.
Clinton added that if someone is too dangerous to get on a plane, then they’re also too dangerous to buy a gun.
Then, taking a direct swipe at her rival, Clinton said Trump “does not seem to grasp any of this.” She called him “temperamentally unfit and unqualified to become commander in chief.”
Clinton said Trump is “fixated” on the phrase “radical Islam” as if it’s a “magical phrase” that will stop terrorists.
Clinton called for building trust in Muslim communities here at home to help counter radicalization.
“Not one of Donald Trump’s reckless ideas would have saved a single life in Orlando,” she noted.
Clinton said Trump’s build a wall idea won’t keep the internet out – which has been linked to radicalizing some homegrown terrorists.
