Hillary Clinton, in a speech at the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis on Tuesday, contrasted herself with Republicans running for president, saying Muslim-Americans are the "first, last and best defense against homegrown radicalization and terrorism."
She added that: "I am confident once again we will choose resolve over fear and we will defeat these new enemies just as we have defeated those who have threatened us in the past, because it is not enough to contain ISIS, we must defeat ISIS."
While offering a "360-degree strategy to keep America safe" measure against terrorism, she proposed more strict screenings for anyone entering the country who had visited a country known for terrorism. On her plan to end ISIS online radicalization, she proposed shutting down ISIS-inspired Facebook and Twitter profiles and removing terrorist content.
Clinton added that: "Our security professionals need to more effectively track and analyze ISIS' social media posts and map jihadist networks. We have to stop jihadists from radicalizing new recruits in person and through social media, chat rooms and what is called the dark web. To do that, we need stronger relationships between Washington, Silicon Valley and all of our great tech companies."
