MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio says the Obama administration is making the United States less safe instead of more secure.

Traveling with his wife and children, Rubio told supporters on Wednesday the U.S. must confront groups like the Islamic State directly and build a coalition of support. Rubio also says President Obama’s insistence on a deal with Iran that includes sanctions relief will ultimately put more weapons in that country’s hands.

Rubio spoke just after the president said at the White House that there is “no specific and credible intelligence” to suggest terrorists have plans to strike the U.S. over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Obama’s remarks came after a meeting with his national security team.
