Donald Trump and moderator Martha Raddatz had a testy exchange during Sunday night's debate regarding the Republican presidential candidate's evolving position on Muslim immigration, which he said has become an "extreme vetting" program.

After ABC News reporter Raddatz asked Trump whether his proposed ban on Muslim immigration is no longer his position, Trump said it has "morphed into an extreme vetting from certain areas of the world."

Raddatz then said: "Why did it morph into that? Answer the question."

The exchange then went as follows:

Trump: "Why didn't you interrupt her [Hillary Clinton]?"

Raddatz: "Would you please explain whether or not the Muslim ban still stands?"

Trump: "It is called extreme vetting. We are going to areas like Syria, where they are coming in by the tens of thousands because of Barack Obama. And Hillary Clinton wants to allow a 550 percent increase over Obama. … This is going to be the great Trojan horse of all time."

Clinton responded by saying she would not let anyone into the U.S. who she feels would be a threat to America's security. She then turned her attention to Trump and bashed his policy on the matter.

"I thought that what he said was extremely unwise and even dangerous," Clinton said.

"And indeed, you can look at the propaganda on a lot of the terrorist sites and what Donald Trump says about Muslims is used to recruit fighters because they want to create a war between us."
