US Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump has said that he would enact “extreme vetting” of immigrants to combat Islamic extremism.
In a speech in Ohio, the candidate said applicants will be tested to determine if they share western liberal values like LGBT and religious tolerance.
Democratic rival Hillary Clinton poured scorn on his plan, labelling it a “cynical ploy”.
And he said that the oil in Iraq should have been seized by the US government to prevent it from becoming the property of IS.
Mr Trump is still facing a backlash for repeatedly describing Mr Obama and his Democratic rival for the White House, Hillary Clinton, as “founders” of Islamic State.
