Clinton. Trump.

Where they stand . . .

On Terrorism

Hillary Clinton, Democratic Presidential Candidate: “I’ve laid out my strategy for defeating ISIS. We will strike their sanctuaries from air, and support local forces taking them out on the ground. We will surge our intelligence so we detect and prevent attacks before they happen.”

Donald Trump, Republican Presidential Candidate: “We must work with all of our allies who share our goal of destroying ISIS and stamping out Islamic terrorism.

And doing it now. Doing it quickly.”

On Immigration

Hillary Clinton: “I believe that when we have millions of hard-working immigrants contributing to our economy, it would be self-defeating and inhumane to try to kick them out.”

Donald Trump: “We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration. To stop the gangs…and the violence…and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”

On Each Other

Hillary Clinton: “Donald Trump can’t even handle the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign. He loses his cool at the slightest provocation.

A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Donald Trump: “After fifteen years of wars in the Middle-East…after trillions of dollars spent…and thousands of lives lost…the situation is worse than it as ever been before.

This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death…destruction…terrorism…and weakness.”
