US Republican presidential candidates on Sunday night attacked President Barack Obama's televised address after the deadly Islamic State (IS) inspired California shooting rampage.

Obama had condemned the attack as "an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people," but also called it a "new phase" in the fight against Islamist militancy. He called for gun control and for the country to stick to its pluralistic foundations.

"I will shut down the immigration system that is letting jihadists into our country," Senator Ted Cruz promised, if elected president.

"President Obama has finally been forced to abandon the political fantasy he has perpetuated for years that the threat of terrorism was receding," former Florida Governor Jeb Bush wrote on Facebook.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan called the president's address "a half-hearted attempt to defend and distract from a failing policy."
