Debate heats up between Trump, Clinton over Islamic terror

The presumptive presidential candidates of the US Republican and Democratic parties, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, intensified their verbal battle over Islamic terror on Monday in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Orlando in which 49 Americans were murdered.
Trump denounced President Obama over his refusal to say that radical Islam was behind the attack and called on Obama to resign. He added Clinton should drop out of the presidential race, claiming her and Obama's policy has allowed tens of thousands of migrants to enter the US without supervision, including some "sick with hate" for the US whose real identities and goals remain unknown. Trump said "This could be the all-time great Trojan horse"."
Clinton rejected Trump's statements, saying the important thing is not what terrorists are called but rather which actions are taken against them.  She said terrorists and their supporters use Islam to carry out their actions.
DEBKAfile: There is no doubt that the mass shooting in Orlando has once again placed radical Islamic terror at the center of the presidential election campaign, which helps Trump more than Clinton.
