The United States shouldn't be concerned only with shutting down radical mosques, as GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump suggests, but any place promoting radical Islam, says one of his challengers, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

"It's not about closing down mosques," Rubios said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." "It's about closing down any place, whether it's a cafe, a diner, an Internet site – any place where radicals are being inspired."

The bigger problem, Rubio said, is the United States' inability to find out where such places are because intelligence programs have been crippled by NSA leaker Edward Snowden and "by some of the things that this president has put in place… to diminish our intelligence capabilities."

Rubio said President Barack Obama and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton have taken an "extreme position" criticizing Republicans and some Democrats who want to increase background checks before Syrian refugees are let in.

"This is one of those issues where you allow 10,000 people in, you get 999 of them right, but you miss on one of them, you've allowed an ISIS fighter into the country," Rubio said.
