Commenting about the massacre at Orlando Florida, America's presidential rivals, Hillary Clinton warned against demagoguery and rival Donald Trump declared prospective immigrants from some nations persona non grata.

Both candidates used their speeches in the wake of the shooting to enhance their commander-in-chief credibility, in starkly different tones.

Donald Trump called for a halt to Syrian refugees entering the United States and warned there are people living in America with "hate in their heart."

Clinton for her part, reiterated her call for reinstatement of an assault weapons ban, saying the Orlando shooter used a "weapon of war" to kill 49 people.
