Hillary Clinton gave former President George W. Bush a nod at Saturday’s Democratic presidential debate, where foreign policy took center stage in the wake of Friday’s terror attacks in Paris.
When asked a question about “radical Islam,” the former Secretary of State criticized some of the language used to by Republican candidates, which Clinton said misrepresents who the U.S. is fighting.
“That was one of the real contributions, despite all the other problems, that George W. Bush made after 9/11, when he basically said, after going to a mosque in Washington, we are not at war with Islam or muslims,” said Clinton. “We are at war with violent extremism, we are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression and yes we are at war with those people. But I don’t want us to be painting with too broad a brush.”
Republican candidates chimed in on Twitter.
