United States President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s policies “created ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria]”, leading Republican presidential aspirant Donald Trump has alleged.
ADVERTISEMENTAt least five women claim to have had consensual extramarital affairs with Clinton, while at least two women have accused him of sexual harassment, and one of rape. “They are going to people showing videos of Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists”, she had said.
“She would go along with him”, Trump told Fox News.
“When we met 45 years ago… she wasn’t elected to anything, but everything she touched she made better”, Clinton said.
New Hampshire is host to the nation’s first presidential primary on Feb 9.
Trump responded that Hillary Clinton was an “enabler” and that Bill Clinton and his presidency were “seedy”.
“If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his bad record of women abuse, while playing the women’s card on me, she is wrong”, Trump tweeted last week.
Bill Clinton entered the campaign fray on Monday with a passionate endorsement of his wife’s suitability to follow in his footsteps to the Oval Office.
It’s unclear whether this line of attack will actually damage Hillary Clinton. “I mean, this is a sovereign country, ‘” he said. Clinton cited a story in the New York Daily News, in which a local Muslim shop clerk thwarted several armed robbers.
“They’ve created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created ISIS with Obama“, Trump said yesterday. “I think the only time he darkened the door of my administration was when I signed that bill that he and Hillary did together”, he said.
Her platform, he added, was the one which offered “the best chance to have the most rapid growth in employment and shared prosperity”.
More than 720 people packed into a gym at Nashua Community College for Bill Clinton’s first solo appearance for his wife’s campaign.
In Manchester, N.H., meanwhile, Bill Clinton mingled with a lunchtime crowd at a popular eatery while a news station above his head ran captioned video questioning whether he could avoid Trump’s flagrant attacks – and that’s just what he did.
