Donald Trump said Wednesday night that President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton founded ISIS. At a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Trump once again attacked the foreign policy of Obama and Clinton, saying their policies resulted in the creation of ISIS.
“ISIS is honoring President Obama,” Trump said. “He is the founder of ISIS. He is the founder of ISIS, OK? He’s the founder. He founded ISIS. And I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”
His comments Wednesday were not the first time he connected Obama to ISIS. In June, he tweeted an article from Breitbart that said, “The Obama administration was actively supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State.”
Also, during the same rally, Trump referred to the president as “Barack Hussein Obama.”
