The morning after the Democratic presidential debate, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's campaign released a new video hitting frontrunner Hillary Clinton on comments she made regarding the Islamic State.

The video opens with Clinton's comments from Saturday night's debate as she said,  "I wish we could say, 'yes, let's go destroy ISIS, and let's let Assad continue to destroy Syria.' No, we now finally are where we need to be."

It then cuts to news clips of the San Bernardino terrorist attack that killed 14 people at a social services center in California earlier this month.

"America has had enough of empty words, of declarations detached from reality, of an administration with no strategy or no intention to win," Bush says in the video. "We can't withdraw from this threat or negotiate with it. We have but one choice — to defeat it."

The Islamic State  and terrorism was by the far the most discussed topic during the third Democratic debate held in New Hampshire Saturday night.

During the debate, Clinton also made the claim that controversial rhetoric from GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump was being used as recruitment tools by terrorist organizations.

According to Real Clear Politics' aggregated polling data, Clinton leads among Democrats at 56.3 percent. Trump leads among Republican voters with 34.4 percent as Bush is at 4.6 percent.
