Trump: Clinton, Obama ‘Created ISIS’
According to Donald Trump, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are responsible for creating ISIS.
Speaking at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Trump made the claim that the Democrats were responsible for accelerating the development of ISIS.
“They’ve created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama,” Trump said.
“In Tehran, they’re burning down the Saudi embassy, you see that?” Trump said as he opened his remarks. “Now, what that is is Iran wants to take over Saudi Arabia. They always have. They want the oil, OK? They’ve always wanted that.”
Trump has blamed both Democrats and former President George W. Bush when talking about unrest in the Middle East, particularly citing the 43rd president’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003. In recent weeks, he’s been particularly aggressive in going after Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, and her record leading the State Department.
Two of Trump’s 2016 competitors, Carly Fiorina and Rick Santorum, said in November that Clinton and Obama were to blame for ISIS.
