Republican candidate Donald Trump roiled the US presidential campaign once again, with the jaw-dropping assertion Wednesday that Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama “founded” the IS group.
Addressing supporters at a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the real estate tycoon said the jihadist group is “honoring President Obama.”
“He is the founder of ISIS,” Trump said, using a term for IS.
“He’s the founder of ISIS, okay?” he added. “He’s the founder! He founded ISIS.”
“And I would say, the co-founder would be ‘Crooked Hillary Clinton’,” Trump shouted, over cheers and applause from the crowd.
