Donald Trump has accused Hillary Clinton of creating the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), launching the latest offencive in an ongoing clash between the Republican and Democratic presidential front-runners.
Mr Trump, addressing 15,000 supporters at a raucous campaign rally in Mississippi on Saturday night, continued his assault on Mrs Clinton’s foreign policy experience.
“Hillary Clinton created Isil with Obama,” he said, sending cheers rippling through the arena in Biloxi. “Created. With. Obama.
Republicans have pilloried Mrs Clinton for months over the global turmoil that followed the four years she spent as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state. Mr Trump has now taken those attacks to a new extreme by suggesting that she is the primary culprit in the rise of Isil.
His remarks follow Mrs Clinton’s contention, in the most recent Democratic presidential debate, that Mr Trump was becoming Isil’s “best recruiter”.
“They are going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical Jihadists,” Mrs Clinton claimed last month.
Mrs Clinton offered no evidence for that claim, and Mr Trump demanded an apology, calling it “a disgusting story she made up about me”.
