The 2016 election has provided the American people with a race that is unlike any others before it. Though there are many important issues that can affect the outcome, foreign policy continues to remain at the top of the list.

Big Apple bombing

Manhattan was the latest target by an apparent lone-wolf Islamic terrorist when 28-year-old #Ahmad Rahami set off a bomb in New York City Saturday night. As details continue to be revealed, #Donald Trump and #Hillary Clinton made sure to offer their thoughts on the developing situation.

As expected, Trump offered a more hard-line response, praising law enforcement before taking to his offical Twitter account.

"Once again someone we were told is ok turns out to be a terrorist who wants to destroy our country & its people," Trump tweeted.

 

Clinton was also briefed on the attack, commenting, "We have to let the investigation unfold," before explaining, "I'll have more to say about it when we actually have the facts." The two candidates will get a chance to debate the issue face-to-face at the first debate scheduled for next week in New York.
