Likening the battle against ISIL to the Cold War, Donald Trump laid out his anti-terrorism plan.
Point of view
It includes ideological tests for immigrants or ‘extreme vetting’. He also said he would work with Russia as well as NATO to defeat ISIL.
Addressing his Democratic rival, he claimed Clinton didn’t have the mental stamina to beat the militant group, adding:
“The rise of ISIS is the direct result of policy decisions made by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton.”
He went on to criticise German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door refugee policy and said Clinton was ‘America’s Merkel’.
On the campaign trail, Vice-President Joe Biden described Trump as a threat to the country, saying he had praised on Saddam Hussein and would have loved Stalin.
“No major party nominee, in the history of the United States of America, has – now don’t cheer, quiet, just listen – has known less or been less prepared to deal with our national security than Donald Trump. And what absolutely amazes me, absolutely amazes me, the he doesn’t want to seem to learn it.”
Whenever you hear Trump talk about foreign policy, picture him in the Situation Room making decisions for all of us. https://t.co/7QBVFziTdN— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 15, 2016
