Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's refusal to use the phrase "radical Islam" in relation to terror attacks is like pretending the United States wasn't fighting the Nazis in World War II, says GOP candidate Sen. Marco Rubio.

Clinton was asked during Saturday's Democratic debate whether she agreed with Rubio's assessment that the deadly Paris attacks were carried out by radical Islamists.

Clinton replied that America isn't at war with a religion's extremist element, but that "We are at war with violent extremism. We are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression."

But she declined to "paint with too broad of a brush."

"I don’t understand it," Rubio said when played a clip of Clinton's statement Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "That would be like saying we weren’t at war with Nazis because we were afraid to offend some Germans who may have been members of the Nazi party but weren’t violent themselves."

Rubio said that all Muslims are not extremists, but added, "We are at war with radical Islam. With an interpretation of Islam by a significant number of people around the world that they believe now justifies them killing people who don’t agree with their ideology."
