Donald Trump clobbered Hillary Clinton for saying his rhetoric had become a ‘recruiting tool’ for the ISIS terror army
Clinton made the claim Monday, saying he had given ‘aid and comfort’ to the enemy – a form of treason
She has made similar claims in the past including during a December 2015 Democratic primary debate
Politifact.com called that statement ‘false’ at the time and Trump demanded an apology – but Clinton’s press secretary boomed: ‘Hell no!’
Donald Trump pushed back Tuesday against Hillary Clinton’s claim that his tough talk on Islamic radicalism has become a ‘recruiting tool’ for the ISIS terror army.
‘She goes around saying, “It’s a recruiting tool,” Trump told a packed basketball arena during an unusually short 26-minute speech at North Carolina’s High Point University.
‘You know somebody gave her that from Madison Avenue. You know about it – that’s advertising. They gave her that, they said, “Let’s call it a recruiting tool!’
‘Why? Because I’m tough it’s a recruiting tool?’ Trump asked. ‘It demonstrates a level of ignorance about the terror threat that really is disqualifying for a person seeking the presidency.’
Clinton all but accused Trump of treason on Monday, saying the Republican nominee is a ‘recruiting sergeant’ for terrorists and has given ‘aid and comfort’ to ISIS by framing America as the picture of anti-Islam intolerance – just as terrorists in the Middle East tend to do.
‘We’re going after the bad guys, and we’re going to get them, but we’re not going after an entire religion,’ she told reporters. ‘We know that Donald Trump’s comments have been used online for the recruitment of terrorists.’
Trump shoved back – hard.
‘When she says my opposition to radical Islamic terror provides aid and comfort to the enemy, we know that Hillary Clinton has once again demonstrated that she’s really unfit for office,’ Trump said to cheers.
‘Her comments are not only reckless but beneath the dignity of the office that she seeks.’
‘ISIS is torturing, murdering, executing and exterminating people in a campaign of genocide. And what is Hillary Clinton suggesting? What is she suggesting? You know what she’s suggesting: “Let’s let more people come in” – that we should censor our vocabulary so as not to upset these butchers.’
‘I have news for Hillary. Refusing to call out radical Islam will not lessen the danger. It will only increase and embolden the danger, just like we have seen during her disastrous and failed term as secretary of state.’
‘I’m much tougher than her,’ he added later.
Trump tweeted before Tuesday afternoon’s rally: ‘Crooked Hillary has been fighting ISIS, or whatever she has been doing, for years. Now she has new ideas? It is time for change.’
