SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah Congressman Chris Stewart tells FOX 13 News he thinks President Barack Obama is too weak on ISIS and Republican candidate Donald Trump is too tough on Muslims.

“The reality is we've been careful and cautious and tepid in our willingness to engage with them,” Stewart said of Obama’s action toward ISIS.

However, the congressman doesn’t agree with Trump’s approach either.

“I think he's wrong for calling for a ban on all Muslims entering the country. I think it's ineffective and too broad,” Stewart said of Trump.

Stewart said the concern Orlando raises for him is that an attacker doesn’t need to travel to the Middle East for training. They can be effective communicating from a distance, meaning, in Stewart’s argument, the U.S. needs to ramp up its military commitment against the ISIS.
