Hillary Clinton refuses to call the San Bernardino attackers “terrorists,” instead just calling them “shooters.”
Speaking at a campaign rally on Tuesday, Clinton said, “Now as we all know, on December 2, two shooters killed 14 people at a holiday party in San Bernardino, California.” (RELATED: Hillary: Saying ‘Radical Islam’ Is ‘Not Particularly Helpful’ [VIDEO])
This is not the first time Clinton has not used the words “terrorism” or “radical Islamic.” Last Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Clinton said that she doesn’t use the term “radical Islam” because it “sounds like we are declaring war against a religion,” and that it contributes to a “clash of civilizations.” (RELATED: Hillary Won’t Say ‘Radical Islam’ Because It ‘Sounds Like We Are Declaring War Against A Religion’ [VIDEO])
December 3, Clinton tweeted, “Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”
"Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

Other presidential candidates have endorsed using the term “radical Islam,” including Donald Trump who suggested that he uses the term “radical Islamic terrorism” because “if you can’t define the problem, you’re never going to solve the problem.”
