Clinton Defends Islam, Attacks Trump: ‘”We Cannot Demonize Muslim People”

Hillary Clinton condemned Donald Trump for reiterating his support for a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants, saying, “We cannot demonize Muslim people.”

“Inflammatory anti-Muslim rhetoric hurts the vast majority of Muslims who love freedom and hate terror,” Clinton wrote in an email to supporters, entitled “Orlando,” on Monday afternoon just minutes after Trump’s speech to supporters in New Hampshire.

She added, “It’s no coincidence that hate crimes against American Muslims and mosques tripled after Paris and San Bernardino. Islamophobia goes against everything we stand for as a nation founded on freedom of religion, and it plays right into the terrorists’ hands.”
