Apologize to Trump? ‘Hell No,’ Says Clinton Spokesman
Donald Trump demanded an apology from Hillary Clinton after she slammed him for helping ISIS recruit new terrorists.
Clinton’s campaign has refused to apologize and is standing by their statements.
“Hell no,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told The Wall Street Journal.
“Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” Fallon added.
The Hill reports:
Trump earlier on Monday demanded an apology from Clinton for claiming that he was being used in Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) recruitment videos, saying Clinton “always lies.”
“I demand an apology from Hillary Clinton for the disgusting story she made up about me for purposes of the debate. There never was a video,” Trump tweeted.
Clinton cited Trump’s controversial remarks on Muslims to say during the Democratic debate over the weekend that Trump “is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter.”
“They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists,” the former secretary of State said.
Her campaign stood by the claim on Sunday, with campaign Chairman John Podesta describing it as “a very fair charge” given Trump’s regular appearance on television and social media.
