Donald Trump criticized Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state at a rally in Florida on Wednesday, saying that her policies led to instability in many parts of the world.
Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton “should get an award” from DAESH for founding Islamic State, claiming her policies as secretary of state precipitated the group’s formation. Trump’s supporters were quick to nod a “lock her up.”
“Take a look at Orlando. Take a look at San Bernardino. Take a look at the World Trade Center. Take a look at what’s going on, and then worldwide, and we let [Islamic State or IS, formerly] ISIS take this position,” the Republican presidential nominee said during an election rally in Daytona Beach, Florida. He drew a list of flaws in US policy in Libya and the Middle East, laying all the blame on Clinton and Obama.
