Hillary Clinton speaks at Stanford, talks counterterrorism

- Fresh off her victory in the Arizona Primary, Hillary Clinton scheduled a last-minute speech at Stanford today, to address the attacks in Brussels.

The Democratic Presidential front-runner was already scheduled to be in the Bay Area for two fundraisers today, in Hillsborough and Atherton. In her address, Clinton urged listeners to stand in solidarity with Europe in order to defeat the Islamic State group, according to her campaign.

The speech comes after dozens of people were reported killed or injured earlier Tuesday in bombings at an airport and transit station in and near Brussels. 

"These terrorists seek to undermine the democratic values that are the foundation of our allegiance and our way of life, but they will never succeed," Clinton said Tuesday in a statement. "Today's attacks will only
strengthen our resolve to stand together as allies and defeat terrorism and radical jihadism around the world."

She does not want to close U.S. borders, as her Republican rival, Donald Trump is suggesting. After the attacks in Brussels, Trump tweeted that America should close the borders to help stop terrorism.
