Trump Doubles Down On His Stance, Calls Obama The “Founder” Of ISIS

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump doesn’t back away from controversy. He says what he believes and when he comes under attack for his views, he never backs down. Instead he doubles down. Such was the case when Trump called Obama the father of ISIS.

Trump appeared on the Hugh Hewitt show on Thursday and was asked about comments he made regarding Obama and the origins of the Islamic State. According to the Daily Caller, Hewitt tried to explain Trump’s statements and provide Trump a way out of the controversy. “Last night, you said the president was the founder of ISIS. I know what you meant,” Hewitt said. “You meant that he created the vacuum, he lost the peace.”

Sensing what Hewitt was trying to do, Trump made it crystal clear what he meant by his statement. “No,” Trump replied. “I meant he’s the founder of ISIS. 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.”

Hewitt then turned to trying to protect Obama from Trump’s statements. “But he’s not sympathetic to them,” Hewitt said. “He hates them. He’s trying to kill them.”

Trump put an end to that notion quickly. “I don’t care,” Trump said. “He was the founder. The way he got out of Iraq was that that was the founding of ISIS, okay.”
