Trump Taking Heat For Saying Obama Founded ISIS

Jihadist group ISIS continues to inflict terror on innocent citizens across the globe, and Donald Trump is pointing some fingers on why they rose to power in the first place. According to Newsmax, he places the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Obama - and a certain presidential candidate.

Trump offered up his thoughts on how ISIS became such a factor while speaking to supporters at a rally in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. He claims the terror group is “honoring President Obama,” but he didn’t let that remark float into thin air without offering up some affirmations.

"He's the founder of ISIS, okay? He's the founder! He founded ISIS," he said.

The President is not the only person that he finds complicit in the group’s founding, and he wasted no time in revealing his choice for second banana in that regard.

"And I would say, the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton,” he added.

The dust had barely settled on another controversial claim from the Republican presidential candidate when he shared his thoughts on the origins of ISIS. Earlier this week, Trump faced some heavy backlash for suggesting that ‘second amendment’ people may figure out what to do with Clinton.
