The Latest on the 2016 presidential campaign (all times EDT):

8:19 a.m.

Two key House members, one Democrat and one Republican, say talk about banning Muslims from the U.S. plays into Islamic State rhetoric.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said "we need to resist doing things that are counterproductive." He cited presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the country.

Schiff said "these statements of banning Muslims play right into the ISIS narrative," using an acronym for the Islamic State group, and are "amazingly counterproductive." They also are used by Islamic State as a recruiting tool, he said.

A law enforcement official has said the gunman who opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 49 people and wounding more than 50 made a 911 call from the nightclub professing allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a deputy Republican whip, said advocating a Muslim ban "is bad" and that the U.S. should focus on the larger tasks of destroying Islamic State and preventing radicalization.

Schiff and Kinzinger spoke Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Hillary Clinton says she isn't shying away from using the term "radical Islamism" to describe the attack in Orlando and that she has a plan to address the threat. But, she adds, singling out a specific religion and trying to demonize its followers won't protect the United States from the next attack.

Her likely Republican opponent, Donald Trump, has criticized President Barack Obama for not using the term and suggested political correctness hurts Democrats' ability to go after terrorists.

Clinton, in a phone interview Monday, told NBC "Today" that she has a plan to defend the nation from "lone wolf" attacks. But "I'm not going to demonize and demagogue" like Trump because "it's plain dangerous."

The FBI says a total of 50 people were left dead, including gunman Omar Mateen, in the shooting inside a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday.

Republican Donald Trump plans Monday to further address the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history in a campaign speech originally intended to attack the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.

The switch comes a day after Trump called for Clinton to drop out of the race for president if she didn't use the words "radical Islam" to describe the Florida nightclub massacre.

A gunman wielding an assault-style rifle and handgun opened fire inside a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday, killing at least 50 people before dying in a gunfight with police. More than 50 more people were wounded, many in critical condition.
