They seem to be a bit confused. Both candidates effectively have the same opinion. Quotes below..

After the Orlando night club shooting, Trump said there are people in"our" country who are"sick with hate, and people that are around him [referring to the shooter], Muslims, know who they are, largely. They know who they are. They have to turn them in."

Meanwhile, Clinton said during a counterterrorism speech at Stanford University,"There are millions of peace-loving Muslims … These Americans are a crucial line of defense against terrorism. They are the most likely to recognize the warning signs of radicalization before it's too late, and the best positioned to block it."

Clinton proposes ongoing air strikes, working with local forces in Iraq and Syria, and collaborating with allies to dismantle"the global network of terror that supplies money, arms, propaganda, and fighters."

Refugees entering the U.S. are subject to rigorous background checks, including a search of government databases that list people suspected of having ties to terrorist groups. Processing of refugees can take anywhere from 18 months to 24 months — and usually longer for those coming from Syria.

First, Russia invaded Georgia in August of 2008, to the consternation of many NATO members. Two months after the Obama Administration took office, Secretary of State Clinton was charged with trying to “reset” relations with Russia. It was at a meeting in Geneva that the now-infamous photo of Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov pushing the red “reset” button (which had been improperly labeled by the White House with the Russian word for “overcharged”) was taken.

We are going to be in trouble no matter how we look at it. Obama has made so many enemies since taking office the next person will be ducking and dodging from day one.

I think we heard tonight during the debate how backwards both of these candidates are on protecting this country.
