New York, June 14: The Orlando shooting has further accelarated Trump's demand to ban on Muslim immigrants in the USA. Donald Trump insisted that Muslims from those areas of the world that have a history of terrorism should be temporarily banned.

He also insisted on the rewriting of US counterterrorism policy that he believed was essential to protect the peace and safety of women and gays in the country.

Born in New York, the Orlando Shooter got refuge among the Muslims in the US, said Trump. "The Muslims have to work with us," Trump. He further said,"They know what's going on. They know that [Orlando gunman Omar Mateen] was bad. They knew the people in San Bernardino were bad. But you know what? They didn't turn them in. And you know what? We had death and destruction."

While Hillary Clinton also spoke about combatting terrorism, Trump denounced both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for "deadly ignorance" and warned that they were endangering lives with weakness and indecision.

He also said, "We need to tell the truth also about how radical Islam is coming to our shores. We need a new leader. We need a new leader fast. . . . They have put political correctness above common sense, above your safety and above all else. I refuse to be politically correct."

As a counter-reaction to Trump's statements, Hillary Clinton said that "inflammatory anti-Muslim rhetoric" alienates the peace-loving Muslims and generalises the community.

Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates, justified what Clinton meant. She further rationalizes that such statements could trigger hate crimes against American Muslims. Khera said, "These kinds of comments give a green light to the American people, and unfortunately some people who might be feeling particularly emotional or other unstable people, to engage in acts of hate."

Targetting the Democrats, Trump criticized the issuance of guns and said that the machines go to the wrong people who use it to their advantage and the other people's disadvantage. "This should be checked," said Trump, reiterating his support for gun restriction.
