ST. PAUL — Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign said she will detail her strategy for protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks during a speech next week in Minnesota.

A statement from the campaign said that during a speech Tuesday, Clinton will talk about the threat of domestic radicalization and lay out a plan that “stays true to America’s most deeply held values,” including religious freedom.

She plans to more specifically address the threat of “foreign-inspired” terrorist attacks inside the U.S. during the Minnesota appearance. A specific location has not been released.

The speech comes in light of recent attacks deemed terrorist-related in both San Bernardino, California, and in Paris.

In California, the shooting rampage left 14 people dead. Authorities stated they believe the couple involved were planning an even bigger assault.
