During what some are calling Donald Trump's greatest speech to date, the GOP presidential nominee clearly and concisely laid out his plan for defeating ISIS.

Speaking to a crowd in Youngstown Ohio, Trump laid this groundwork:
- "We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism, just as we've defeated every threat we've faced at every age and before."
- "If I become president, the era of nation building will be brought to a very swift and decisive end."
- "Since my comments, [NATO] has changed their policies and now have a new division focused on terror threats. Very good. very, very good."
- "I also believe that we can find common ground with Russia in the fight against ISIS.
- "In the Cold War, we had an idealogical screening test. The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. I call it 'extreme vetting.'"
- "Those who do not believe in our Constitution, or who support bigotry or hatred, will not be admitted [into the U.S.]."
- "Anyone who cannot condemn the hatred, oppression, and violence of radical Islam lacks the moral clarify to serve as our president."
- "[Hillary] lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS and all the many adversaries we face."
