    Terrorists have been using provocative comments by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to recruit new followers, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton stated on Monday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — She noted that former CIA director Michael Hayden called Trump a "recruiting sergeant" for the terrorists.

    "Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for recruitment of terrorists," Clinton said in a press conference.

    Trump has sparked controversy in the United States with his comments on Muslims, women, and migration, including calls to build a wall with Mexico and temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States.

    Earlier on Monday, Trump said the United States could face a growing number of terror attacks across the country in the near future following a series of recent attacks in different country's states.

    On Saturday night, an explosion erupted in Manhattan's busy Chelsea neighborhood, injuring 29 people. Earlier in the day, a bomb exploded near a US Marine Corps charity race in the city of Seaside Park, New Jersey, about 82 miles south of New York. No one was hurt in the New Jersey incident.
