Once again, Donald Trump shocks public opinion with one of his dreadful statements. This time, the American tycoon accused Barack Obama and his rival in the race for the White House, Hillary Clinton, of being “co-founders of the Islamic State.”
Trump accused the two Democrats of being primarily responsible for the rise of the violent terrorist organization – born in the Middle East – whose attacks and barbaric actions sow terror around the world.
“Isis honors Obama. He is the founder of Isis, the founder, ok? He is the founder – Trump insisted during a rally held in Florida, in the city of Fort Lauderdale -. And I would say that the corrupt Hillary Clinton is its co-founder”.
This is the first time the Republican candidate for the US presidency attacks in such a direct manner both Obama and Clinton. Hitherto, he had always criticized the two of them indirectly, arguing that their policy supported Al Qaeda in Iraq, the core from which the so-called Caliphate originated later on.
In the last hours, Donald Trump has been in the eye of the storm for yet another shocking statement, one of the many shocking affirmations that have marked his entire election campaign. In fact, the US tycoon has evoked Clinton’s murder, arguing that “the people of the Second Amendment,” that is, the supporters of the undisputed right to arms, may be able to stop his rival. An ambiguous statement that prompted many of his supporters to demand its withdrawal. In fact, one Republican out of five says (s)he is ready to vote for Clinton just to prevent Trump from becoming the legitimate dweller of the White House.
