Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton lacks the "mental" and "physical" stamina to take on the Islamic State (ISIS) and defeat the global threat of "radical Islamic terrorism."
Trump said he will create a "Commission on Radical Islam" to establish protocols in identifying and stopping terrorists.
He likened it to fighting organized crime — singling out the Mafia — saying law enforcement would be allowed to "viciously, if necessary" take terrorists out.
"In America, we have seen one brutal attack after another.... In Europe, we have seen the same carnage and bloodshed," Trump said Monday during a policy speech in Youngstown, Ohio, on his plans to defeat ISIS.
"We cannot let this evil continue.... We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism."
Trump called the rise of ISIS the "direct result" of policies initiated by President Barack Obama and Clinton, his former secretary of state.
Either mentally or physically, Clinton does not have the ability to make the decisions to destroy ISIS and its ongoing spread throughout the world, he said.
And with Obama unable to frame the world carnage as the work of "radical Islamic" terror groups, he lacks the "moral clarity" to be president, as does his potential successor Clinton, according to Trump.
Obama and Clinton have allowed the Islamic State to become a potential "dominant world power," Trump said.
He described Clinton's policy decisions in Libya as a "total disaster."
The fight will not be limited to ISIS, Trump said, adding, "We will decimate al Qaida."
Trump also said the United States will work in tandem with "moderate Muslim reformers."
"Extreme Vetting" I call it. Extreme, extreme vetting. Our country has enough problems, we don’t need more," Trump said.
He said when he takes office he will work with the State Department and Department of Homeland Security to identify countries "where adequate screening cannot take place."
Trump also believes a Clinton administration will welcome more immigrants into the United States.
"Hillary Clinton wants to be America's Angela Merkel," he said.
