Clinton says she’s the only nominee who knows how to fight terror

Hillary Clinton says she understands how to fight terrorism and is the only candidate running for president who “has been part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield.”

The Democratic presidential nominee is taking questions from reporters about the weekend bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey, which officials say increasingly look like acts of terrorism with a foreign connection.

Clinton calls the attacks “a serious challenge” that the country can meet in “concert with our values.”

That is a dig at the proposals of Republican nominee Donald Trump, who has said he would bar immigration from nations with ties to terrorism.
