    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that Muslim US citizens can help the country's authorities in the fight against lone-wolf terrorists.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) Muslim US citizens can help the country's authorities in the fight against lone-wolf terrorists, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Monday.

    "We’ve got to recognize our first line of defense against lone-wolf attacks is among Muslim Americans… We need to be reaching out and unifying our country against terrorist attacks and lone wolves, and working with Muslim Americans," Clinton said at the Democratic presidential debate, as transcribed by the Federal News Service.

    She also condemned statements of some Republicans, and particularly Donald Trump, who earlier called to ban Muslims from entering the United States.

    "And it is not only shameful, it is dangerous for the kinds of comments you’re hearing from the Republican side," Clinton said.

    In December 2015, Trump proposed a "total and complete" ban for Muslims entering the United States, as well as an Islamic registration and control of certain mosques.
