Clinton Calls Trump’s Anti-Muslim Rhetoric ‘Dangerous’

Hillary Clinton, citing Donald Trump’s incendiary remarks about Muslims and others, said Tuesday that the Republican presidential candidate should be “rejected roundly by the American people,” The Hill reported.

“We should not reward people who use inflammatory rhetoric, who use the kind of derogatory comments, whether it’s about Muslims, or Mexicans, or women, or people with disabilities, whoever it might be,” the leading contender for the Democratic nomination told Chris Matthews on CNBC’s “Hardball.” She added: “That is not a sign of leadership. That’s a sign of, you know, showmanship, of desperation.”

Clinton, who told the Des Moines Register last month that Trump has “a penchant for sexism,” has frequently denounced him for his anti-Islam language. The billionaire businessman has proposed banning Muslims from entering the United States, conducting surveillance of U.S. mosques and creating a national database to monitor Muslim citizens.

“I believe ISIS cannot be contained. It has to be defeated,” Clinton told Matthews. “But in order to do that, we need to work within our own country, with Muslim Americans, so that what I’m hearing from the other side is not only offensive and shameful, it’s dangerous, counterproductive.”

Clinton has alleged that Trump is aiding ISIS’ recruitment efforts. A recent video produced by the militant group featured him calling for the Muslim immigration ban.
