Hillary Clinton: Presidential Hopeful Claims United States Is 'Not Winning' The Fight Against ISIS [Video]

Hillary Clinton has gone on record and stated on Sunday that the United States is "not winning" their fight against ISIS. Clinton is calling on members of Congress to look at updating the authorization for use of force, which was passed shortly after September 11, 2001. Clinton says that updating the authorization will give President Obama more options against ISIS.

President Obama will be speaking to the nation tonight and addressing the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. Clinton claims that she expects the president to also state that the United States will be increasing its efforts in our fight against ISIS. Josh Earnest, White House press secretary, gave a brief statement about what we can expect to hear from President Obama. Earnest said that President Obama will outline "the steps our government is taking to fulfill his highest priority: keeping the American people safe." Clinton does not think Obama's message tonight will be enough for the American people.

"I think... that's what we'll hear from the president, an intensification of the existing strategy. And I think there's some additional steps we have to take."
"We're not winning, but it's too soon to say that we are doing everything we need to do. And I've outlined very clearly we have to fight them in the air, we have to fight them on ground, and we have to fight on the Internet. And we have to do everything we can with our friends and partners around the world to protect ourselves."
"What happened in San Bernardino was a terrorist act. Nobody is arguing with that. The law enforcement, FBI have come to that conclusion. And let's not forget, though, a week before we had an American assault on Planned Parenthood and some weeks before that we had an assault at a community college. So I don't see these two as in any way contradictory. We have to up our game against terrorists abroad and at home, and we have to take account of the fact that our gun laws and the easy access to those guns by people who shouldn't get them, mentally ill people, fugitives, felons and the Congress continuing to refuse to prohibit people on the no-fly list from getting guns, which include a lot of domestic and international terrorists, these are two parts of the same approach that I'm taking to make us safe."
