Clinton Fires Back on 'Radical Islam': Deeds Matter More Than Words

(NBC)

By    |   Monday, 13 June 2016 10:50 AM EDT

Hillary Clinton on Monday slapped Donald Trump for complaining she won't say "radical Islam" in discussing terrorist ties to the Orlando nightclub massacre, telling NBC's "Today" show her favored term of "radical jihadism" means the same, but is less inflammatory.

"From my perspective, it matters what we do, not what we say … To me, radical jihadism, radical Islamism, I think they mean the same thing. I'm happy to say either, Clinton told "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie.

"All of his talk and demagoguery and rhetoric is not going to solve the problem. I'm not going to demonize and demagogue and declare war on an entire religion."

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said of her Republican counterpart that Trump's term is like declaring "war on an entire religion."

"I think Trump, as usual, is obsessed with name calling and from my perspective it matters what we do, not what we say. It matters that we got [Osama] bin Laden, not what name we called him," she said.
