Clinton: I'm happy to say 'radical Islamism'
by Rebecca Savransky
Hillary Clinton on Monday shot back at Donald Trump after he called for her to get out of the race for the White House because she did not use the words "radical Islam" in the wake of the Orlando, Fla., nightclub attack.
"I am not going to demonize and demagogue and declare war on an entire religion. That's just plain dangerous, and it plays into ISIS's hand," Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, said on NBC's "Today" show Monday morning, referring to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
"From my perspective, it matters what we do, not what we say. It matters that we got bin Laden, not what name we called him, but if he is somehow suggesting I don't call this for what it is, he hasn't been listening."
