DONALD TRUMP: He was the founder of ISIS, absolutely. The the way he removed our troops — We shouldn’t have gone in I was against the war in Iraq… We shouldn’t have been in Iraq. I would not have been in Iraq if I was president, but that mistake was made, it was one of the worst mistakes in the history of our country, we destabilized the middle east. We’ve been paying the price for it for years.
But [Obama] was the founder, absolutely the founder. In fact, he gets the Most Valuable Player award. Him and Hillary! She gets it too.
She is the co-founder if you really looked at my speech…
Hillary gets the Most Valuable Player award having to do with Iraq, and having to do with the ISIS situation. Or as she would call it, ISIL. [Obama] calls it ISIL, nobody else does. He probably wants to bother people by using a different term…
He was the founder of ISIS and so was she. I call them cofounders… Because of the wat he got out [of Iraq]… He shouldn’t have gotten out the way he got out. It was a disaster what he did.
Is there something wrong with saying that? Are people complaining that I said he was the founder of ISIS?
All I do is tell the truth, I am a truth teller.
