The republican candidate Donald Trump promises that he would work closely with NATO in order to defeat the Islamic State militants, if he becomes the next president. He said that he would wage a multi -front war against the Islamic State, although it was not clear how this would differ from the Obama administration’s fight with the jihadist group.
Trump called for shutting down access to the Internet and social media for those who are aligned with the Islamic State, which holds territory in Syria and Iraq, but said he did not want to detail military strategy because it would tip off potential foes.
“We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism just as we have defeated every threat we’ve faced at every age and before,” Trump said, blaming his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, and President Barack Obama for aiding the rise of Islamic State.
In a speech in Ohio he also said that he would temporary ban Muslims to immigrate in the US, and he’d develop a new screening test to try to catch people who intend to do harm the country.
He attacked Clinton accusing her of “lack of mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS and all of the many adversaries we face,” he said.
