that she continues to address. there is going to be a certain segment that is never going to vote for her because of that issue but it's one in which she pushes forward and she continues to say how she will make amends and show what her candidacy is about. >> dana: sounds like her policy to fight isis is more of the policies of barack obama s. that working in the fight against >> we are starting to see a shrinking of the isis footprint especially in syria. but it is also one in which she would like to have more arab allies working together to arm those that are in directly on the ground and be able to fight them there in country, to be able to increase our air presence, to be able to work with our allies also and be able to stop isis from being able to have the weapons in which they
it's also an escalation, especially on the air side and be able to go at them especially in the cyberspace which we know they have been very effective in recruiting and being able to promoted what their ideals are about. all of those things you will see her being very strong unlike trump who has devote announce except he has a secret plan whiche because he's smarter than the generals, the generals are reduced to rubble. he's going to be able to produce this super plan that nobody has a concept what it's about. >> dana: we appreciate your time. thank you. >> krystal: the big story that mercury substance found at walter johnson middle school. we have a crew on scene and have
