Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and more presidential candidates blast Islamic terrorists for the sickening attacks against the innocent people of Brussels on March 22. Read their statements here.
John Kasich is urging Americans and our allies to unite and dedicate ourselves to rejecting terrorism after the brutal attacks in Brussels on March 22 that killed at least 34 and issued more than 100. Read his full statement, along with words from Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, here.
Hillary recognized that the “threat of terrorism” is one we have to continue to be vigilant against in a phone call to the Today show, just hours after the attack. “I know that Americans have every reason to be frightened about what they see and what happened to us with San Bernardino,” she explained. “Remember, the terrorists are trying to undermine the democratic values that are at the root of our way of life. We cannot let them succeed.We have to intensify our efforts to keep America safe and keep our allies safe from these threats, as well.”

“Our hearts break for the men and women of Brussels this morning,” Ted wrote in a statement. “Make no mistake — these terror attacks are no isolated incidents. They are just the latest in a string of coordinated attacks by radical Islamic terrorists perpetrated those who are waging war against all who do not accept their extreme strain of Islam. Radical Islam is at war with us. For over seven years we have had a president who refuses to acknowledge this reality. And the truth is, we can never hope to defeat this evil so long as we refuse to even name it. That ends on January 20, 2017, when I am sworn in as president. We will name our enemy — radical Islamic terrorism. And we will defeat it.”

“The wave of terror that has been unleashed in Europe and elsewhere around the world are attacks against our very way of life and against the democratic values upon which our political systems have been built,” John Kasich said in his statement. “We and our allies must dedicate ourselves to these values of freedom and human rights. We must utterly reject the use of deadly acts of terror. We must also redouble our efforts with our allies to identify, root out and destroy the perpetrators of such acts of evil. We must strengthen our alliances as our way of life and the international system that has been built on our common values since the end of the Second World War comes under challenge from these and other actors of evil.”
