SUNRISE (FLORIDA): Donald Trump calls the US President Barack Obama as the “founder” of the Islamic State terrorist group on Wednesday.
He said at a rally in Sunrise, Florida that. “Isis is honoring President Obama,” Trump said of Islamic State. “He is the founder of Isis. He founded Isis. And, I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”
He added extra emphasis on the president’s full name, to imply he is a secret Muslim saying that it occurred “during the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.”
“In many respects, you know, they honour President Obama,” Mr Trump said at a campaign rally outside Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “He is the founder of Isis,” he said, repeating the claim three times.
His comment came a day after his remarks that appeared to suggest that gun rights advocates harm Hillary Clinton.
He also criticised the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq that was completed under Mr Obama in 2011, claiming “he made a mess”.
“We should never have gotten out the way we got out,” he said. “We unleashed terrible fury all over the Middle East.”
“Instead of allowing some small forces behind to maybe, just maybe, keep it under control, we pulled it out.”
He said: “People don’t like saying [Radical Islamic terrorism]. Our president refuses to use the term. Every time another event happens, I keep saying, I wonder if he’s gonna say it this time. And he doesn’t say it.”
“And Hillary won’t say it either,” he said. “She doesn’t wanna say it, cause she doesn’t wanna offend the president, because then bad things could happen to her if she offends the president. Bad things could happen to her.
“So she’s afraid to say it. Hillary’s afraid to say it. She did say that she would say it because of me, but she’s afraid to say it. But, we have a real problem with radical Islamic terror. It’s’ what it is. It’s terror.”
