Clinton on combatting terror: "I know how to do this"

It came down to "one word", Clinton said.

Both candidates for the November 8 election tried to use the weekend attacks to flex their credentials to protect America as world leaders gathered in security-heightened NY for the annual United Nations General Assembly.

Yes, Mr. Trump spoke before the facts were known, but who cares? "I think that - I think we would be unrealistic to think that some people are going to fundamentally change their view", Kaine said.

The Republican presidential nominee went on to praise Israel's policing practices.

However, Trump did not offer a specific plan. Trump, 70, would be the oldest president to take office, while Clinton, 68, would be the second oldest. They are sending out popular surrogates like President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen.

Trump noted that NBC's Matt Lauer had been criticized for going easy on Trump at a televised forum on national security, so there will be pressure on Holt.

As the Post noted, it was one of the few times in the past 12 years where a Democrat scored better on "handling terrorism" than the Republican opponent.

Some of the negativity in the campaign has backfired after Clinton called some Trump supporters a "basket of deplorable" and "irredeemable".

On Monday morning he boasted during a telephone interview that he accurately described the explosions in New York City as a bombing before anyone else.

"I think this is something that maybe will. happen more and more all over the country", he said.

Law enforcement officials said they were investigating whether Rahami could have been influenced by worldwide militant groups or the ongoing conflict in his homeland.

Bombings in the NY region and a stabbing attack in Minnesota have thrust Islamic extremism into the forefront of the 2016 election just a week before the first presidential debate, with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton offering dramatically different visions of how to fight it.

Both Clinton and Trump tried to use the attacks to flex their national security credentials, with world leaders gathering in security-heightened NY for the annual United Nations General Assembly. "Nothing she says or does can ever un-ring that bell".

Clinton's dismissal of the "deplorables" may help Trump energize his voters by deriding her as an elitist who "mocks and demeans" them (as he said Monday).

Trump spokesman Jason Miller issued a statement calling Clinton's Monday comments "beyond the pale" and "an attempt to distract from her frightful record on ISIS", citing the decision to remove American troops from Iraq in 2011.

Clinton, at a news conference in White Plains, sought to cast Trump as "irresponsible", and not capable of making complicated national security decisions.

"Hillary Clinton's comments today accusing Mr. Trump of treason are not only beyond the pale, it's also an attempt to distract from her awful record on ISIS". "These are enemies, these are combatants and we have to be tough, we have to be strong".

"I have sat at that table in the [White House] Situation Room", she said. I've analyzed the threats. I've contributed to actions that have neutralized our enemies.

Recent polls show those two candidates cutting into Mrs Clinton's lead, particularly among young voters. According to a separate question in the poll conducted this week, most American adults said the issue would make "no difference" to how they voted. But to do the hard work as I've done before, to put it into place the strategies for local and state law enforcement for an intelligence surge, " Clinton said. "And it's why I'm seeking the job". I just found it to be incredibly challenging, interesting, and interesting from the standpoint of always trying to make things better. "I mean that's as humankind, as citizens of this country".

Clinton and her team see her foreign policy experience as a key selling point for her candidacy. She said, "We're going after the bad guys and we're going to get them, but we're not going to go after an entire religion".
