GOP nominee Donald Trump addressed the threat of radical Islam at a rally in Estero, Florida Monday, following sevreal attacks that took place in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota over the weekend.

Here’s a transcript from portions of the speech in which he spoke about Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton’s policies in Iraq, Libya, Syria, other places, are largely responsible for the rise of ISIS in the first place. Her attacks on me are all meant to deflect from her record of unleashing this monster of evil on us and all over the world.
And her claim that my opposition to radical Islamic terrorism – you know this was something she said today – that it’s my strong opposition to these people that’s a recruiting tool.
And it demonstrates a level of ignorance about the terror threat and its motivations that – let me just tell you: she is not the right person to solve a problem that largely her and Obama gave us.
It disqualifies her from being a credible presidential candidate, in my opinion. What do I know? In my opinion. Does everybody agree with me or not? [cheers and applause] That’s all we need is four more years of Obama – except worse.
And I will say this – you see that in the polls, you see it all over, you see it outside – she has very, very low levels of enthusiasm. I think a lot of people are not gonna bother and go to the polls and vote for her. But I know that our people – and this is also in the polls – the highest level of enthusiasm that they’ve seen. We’re gonna vote.
We also need the best protection of classified information. That is the worst situation. Hillary’s private email scandal which put our classified information in the reach of our enemies disqualifies her from the presidency – totally. Then she covered up her criminal acts by mass deleting all her emails.
How about she gets a subpoena from the United States Congress and after she gets the subpoena she deletes 33,000 emails plus and everything’s just fine. What is going on?
And not only did she delete them, but she bleached them – something that most people have never even heard about. And she destroyed her phones – many the old fashioned way, with a hammer.
Did anyone ever hear of this before?
This is beneath the dignity of the oval office.
