Statement from HFA on Trump’s ISIS Comments


On Thursday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign responded to claims made by Donald Trump that President Barack Obama and Clinton are founders of ISIS. When asked to clarify whether he believed that President Obama is truly the founder of ISIS, he replied, “I do. He was the most valuable player. I give him the most valuable player award. I give her, too, by the way, Hillary Clinton.” Hillary for America’s senior policy advisor Jake Sullivan responded to Trump’s comments with the following statement:

“This is another example of Donald Trump trash-talking the United States.  It goes without saying that this is a false claim from a presidential candidate with an aversion to the truth and an unprecedented lack of knowledge.  What’s remarkable about Trump’s comments is that once again, he’s echoing the talking points of Putin and our adversaries to attack American leaders and American interests, while failing to offer any serious plans to confront terrorism or make this country more secure.”
