Clinton: ISIS Is Literally Using Videos Of Donald Trump To Recruit New Jihadists


At the ABC News Democratic primary debate in Manchester, N.H., on Saturday night, the only Republican candidate mentioned was Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton made the claim that ISIS fighters are using videos of Trump in their recruiting videos.

"Mr. Trump has a great capacity to use bluster and bigotry to enflame people, and make them think there are easy answers to very complex questions," Clinton says.

"The first line of defense against radicalization is in the Muslim-American community, people who we should be welcoming and working with," she said.

"I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump, is sending a message to Muslims here in the United States — and literally around the world — that there is a clash of civilizations, that there is some kind of Western plot or war against Islam, which then, I believe, fans the flames of radicalization," she continued.

"He is becoming ISIS's greatest recruiter. They are going to people, showing videos of Donald Turmp insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists."
