Donald Trump claimed Wednesday night during a raucous south Florida campaign rally that President Barack Obama and his first secretary of state Hillary Clinton were the ‘founder’ and ‘co-founder’ of the ISIS terror army.
His stunning claim came at the end of a pointed lecture recounting the conditions that led the regional militant group called al-Qaeda in Iraq to grow its ambitions – and blaming the president for creating the power vacuum that terrorists rushed in to fill.’In many respects, you know, they honor President Obama. ISIS is honoring President Obama,’ Trump said, working himself into a lather at the end of a full day of campaigning in two states.
‘He is the founder of ISIS. He is the founder of ISIS, okay? He’s the founder! He founded ISIS!’ he continued, always crescendoing.
