WASHINGTON — Today, Congresswoman Lois Frankel issued the following statement in response to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s speech delivered at the University of Minnesota in which she detailed her domestic counter terrorism strategy.
“Today, Hillary Clinton once again proved that she is the candidate with the deepest experience and the strongest judgment to protect our homeland and lead our allies in the fight against terrorism. As America searches for answers after the San Bernardino attack, Hillary Clinton unveiled a clear strategy that will bolster our defenses against radical extremism without betraying our values. While her Republican counterparts exploit this serious threat to peddle fear and bigotry, Hillary Clinton instead responded with courage and resolve, because she knows that to fan the flames of divisiveness will only embolden terrorists’ recruiting efforts. Hillary Clinton is the only candidate for commander-in-chief with the fortitude to do what it takes to keep our country safe while standing up for America’s values.”
