Clinton on Attacks: Banning Entire Religion Won’t Work

At a press conference Monday morning, Hillary Clinton expressed solidarity with law-enforcement officials attempting to track down 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahimi, the man wanted in connection with bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey. The Democratic presidential nominee also took the opportunity to hit her opponent, Donald Trump, for his calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. “There are millions of law-abiding, peaceful Muslim Americans,” Clinton said, calling for a more advanced visa system. “So let’s not get diverted or distracted by the kind of campaign rhetoric we hear coming from the other side. This is a serious challenge. We are well-equipped to meet it. And we can do so in keeping with smart law enforcement, good intelligence, and in concert with our values.”
