At a campaign event Wednesday in Florida, Donald Trump accused President Obama of being the founder of the Islamic State.

And the Republican presidential nominee accused his Democratic rival for the White House of being the co-founder.

“ISIS is honoring President Obama,” Trump said at a Sunrise, Florida, rally. “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.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has made this accusation. Fox News reported:

Trump has long accused Obama and Clinton for pursuing Middle East policies that created a power vacuum in Iraq that was exploited by Islamic State. He had criticized Obama for announcing he would yank U.S. troops out of Iraq, which Obama critics believe created the instability in which extremist groups thrive.

 

Two months ago, Trump tweeted a Breitbart News article stating that “Hillary Clinton received a classified intelligence report stating that the Obama administration was actively supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State.”

After news of Trump’s remarks hit social media, his fans rallied in his support, often giving proof.
