Donald Trump Calls President Barack Obama the 'Founder of ISIS'
Aug 11 2016 by Johnny Bowman
In a separate interview, when asked by radio host Hugh Hewitt specifically whether he was referring to Obama's actions creating a power vacuum in Iraq, Trump said, "No, I mean he's the founder of ISIS".
In a later speech to homebuilders in Miami on Thursday, Trump said his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, would be given "the most valuable player award" by IS. "ISIS will hand her the most valuable player award".
Donald Trump is defending his decision to label President Barack Obama the "founder" of the Islamic State group. "He hates them. He's trying to kill them", a shocked Hewitt said, left defending the President. "And then you had Hillary with Libya, so sad", Trump further said in the rally. "He was the founder".
"No I meant that he's the founder of ISIS. I do".
"I go back to a very good way of life", Mr. Trump said.
His comment came a day after his remarks that appeared to suggest that gun rights advocates harm Hillary Clinton. "He is the founder of ISIS". "Anyone willing to sink so low, so often should never be allowed to serve as our Commander-in-Chief".
Sen. Susan Collins of ME, one of the most senior Republicans to oppose Trump, said her decision came down to Trump making the world a "more dangerous" place, in her estimation.
And the former secretary of state helped him, according to Trump.
After lamenting the "mistake" the USA made by going to war in Iraq, Trump then criticized Obama's attempts to "clean up".
"Do you not like that?"
People at the rally said economic growth is the main reason they support the Republican presidential nominee. I mean, I don't know if you agree with that, but every single poll, you know, they have Drudge and they have Time and they have Time Magazine, and they have, you know, like six or seven, and I was in 11 debates. "I said pro-2A citizens must organize and get out vote to save our Constitution!"
"I don't care", the billionaire businessman replied. Obama is responsible for the United States troop drawdown in Iraq, and therefore, Republicans argue, he's responsible for what happened there after the USA left.
'In fact, in many respects, you know, they honour President Obama. "They get out", Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer in 2007. "They are in a major civil war".
Trump's latest comments fit a pattern of portraying Obama as alien to mainstream America.
After lamenting the "mistake" the U.S. made by going to war in Iraq - a conflict he repeatedly says that he opposed, despite evidence to the contrary - Trump then criticized Obama's attempts to "clean up".
The Republican presidential candidate has previously attacked Obama and Clinton, who was Secretary of State from 2009-13, for the way in which the U.S. withdrew from Iraq after the war, saying it left a power vacuum which helped create the militant Islamist group that has seized parts of Iraq and Syria.
