Republican candidate Donald Trump roiled the U.S. presidential campaign once again, with the jaw-dropping assertion Wednesday that Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama “founded” ISIS.
Addressing supporters at a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the real estate tycoon said the extremist group is “honoring President Obama.”
“He is the founder of ISIS,” Trump said.
“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.
