(Fox News) Donald Trump made waves at his rally Wednesday night by declaring that President Obama is the “founder of ISIS” and Hillary Clinton is the “co-founder.”
At a speech in Miami Beach this morning, Trump doubled down on the comment, saying the “government has unleashed ISIS” in the Middle East.
Trump said Clinton should be given the “most valuable player” award by ISIS
In a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt, Trump said his comment was not a “mistake” and that ISIS was created by the Obama administration’s “bad policies.”
“Everyone’s liking it. I think they’re liking it,” he said about the response to his statement.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called Trump’s statement “so bizarre,” saying he’s like a “demagogue” who will say anything to stay in the headlines.
“They make their verbal poo poo anyplace to get attention,” she said.
Of course, Hillary had to fire back immediately:
Anyone willing to sink so low, so often should never be allowed to serve as our Commander-in-Chief.

While on the surface it may sound extreme, there have been some pretty smart folks out there who’ve made a strong case that would back Trump’s claim that the past and present Obama regime actually ARE responsible for the emergence of ISIS — the most dangerous terror group in modern times.
And with Obama constantly arming the wrong militias and armies in the Middle East with cutting edge American equipment and weapons — who abandon it almost immediately because they’re too scared to fight — it’s no wonder people are making such claims.
