The Pentagon has warned that Donald Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric undermines US national security by boosting the Islamic State group.

The leading Republican presidential candidate has said Muslims should be banned from entering the US, in the wake of the deadly California attacks.

US Secretary of State John Kerry joined the onslaught of condemnation last afternoon, when he said they were "not constructive" in the fight against IS.

However, Trump defended the idea yesterday, comparing it to policies implemented by President Franklin Roosevelt during World War Two against Japanese, German and Italian people in the US.
