Tuesday at a rally in Keota, IA, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton doubled down on her controversial claim from Saturday nights debate that terrorist groups like ISIS are using video of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in their recruitment efforts.
Clinton said, “I think what you’re hearing from some of the Republicans, most particularly Mr. Trump, about Muslims is not only dangerous, it’s shameful. It is not the kind of language somebody running to be president of the United States should be using and it has consequences. It has real consequences. People around the world pay very close attention to our elections. And if you go on Arabic television as we have and you look at what is being blasted out with video of Mr. Trump being translated into Arabic, ‘no Muslims coming the United States,’ other kinds of derogatory, defamatory statements, it is playing into the hands of the violent jihadists. There is nothing they want more than to be able to claim the Untied States is against Islam and against Muslim. That then lights an even bigger fire for them to make their propaganda claims through social media an d in other ways.”
