WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have outlined dramatically different proposals for fighting terrorism and gun violence following the deadly Orlando nightclub attacks.
The presumptive Republican nominee is vowing to suspend immigration from countries with a history of terrorism and the Democratic candidate warns against demonizing Muslims.
The candidates’ back-to-back speeches Monday underscored the clear choice Americans face in the November election. Clinton’s vision builds on President Barack Obama’s campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and expands on his gun control executive orders, while Trump is calling for a drastically different national security posture.
The cornerstone of Trump’s anti-terror plan is sweeping changes to the nation’s immigration rules, despite the fact that the Orlando shooter was born in the U.S.
