Watch full video of Saturday night’s Democratic debate

“What Secretary Clinton was saying last night is that one of the many risky things about Donald Trump is that his rhetoric saying we should not allow Muslim refugees is being used, and this is something that the global group who monitors social media on ISIS has said”, Jennifer Palmieri said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday. On Syria, she said Mr Sanders’s proposal was “exactly” what she had recommended, but added: “We will not get the support on the ground in Syria to dislodge Isis if the fighters there who are not associated with Isis, but whose principal goal is getting rid of Assad, don’t believe there is a political, diplomatic channel that is ongoing”.

All of the Democratic candidates heavily criticized Republican frontrunner Donald Trump during the final debate of 2015, especially his plan to stop Muslims from entering the US.

“I believe in action where we put together a strong coalition of forces”, Sanders said.

During the Democratic debate Saturday, Clinton said that Trump had become the Islamic State’s “best recruiter” and that “they are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists”. And when she said she understood that people are fearful after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, she pivoted to attack Trump.

There was no evidence to back the claim, and a spokeswoman later said “she didn’t have a particular video in mind”.

Multiple Clinton aides confirmed to CNN that the former president will start headlining events for the campaign in January, including solo events without his presidential candidate wife.

She also took stances on national security at odds with her Democratic competitors. When he suggested Clinton couldn’t separate herself from Wall Street, she said he was hypocritical and had “no trouble” raising money from major corporations when he led the Democratic Governors Association.

While her rivals Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley were keen to portray themselves as much closer to the dovish Democratic base on US intervention overseas, she felt comfortable laying out a robust program to tackle ISIS – including a no-fly zone in Syria – which would include a tougher military component than that favored by President Barack Obama.

She pledged that as president, she wouldn’t raise taxes on families making $250,000 or less per year.

“What the DNC did arbitrarily without discussing it with us is shut off our access to our information, crippling our campaign”, Sanders said. “And no Mrs. Clinton, we are not where we need to be in the fight against ISIS”.

Marco Rubio is also polling well in the state, as well as in SC.

But for now, Clinton appears to be well positioned to ease through the Democratic primary and take the fight to her preferred targets in the Republican Party. “I was so proud of her tonight, but the proof is in the voting”. “I know you’ll step up when I need you”.
