National security official states support for Clinton over Trump

US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton rebuked comments made by her rival Donald Trump earlier, claiming that she and incumbent US President Barack Obama were the founders of the "Islamic State" (IS) group.

Trump claims the USA government "has unleashed ISIS". "I call them co-founders", Trump said and insisted that there is nothing wrong in saying that.

Republicans frequently trace the birth of ISIS to the Obama administration's decision to withdraw the last U.S. forces from Iraq by the end of 2011.

For her part, Clinton admonished Trump for his accusation, tweeting "No, Barack Obama is not the founder of ISIS". But he and Hillary get the most valuable player award having to do with Iraq. I don't know. But I tell you what, that will be a frightful day if Hillary gets to put her judges in. "I gave her co-founder if you really looked at this speech", Trump said. Most people call it ISIS; he calls it ISIL. "People knew he was sick and we have a President that won't even use the term radical Islam and look what happened". "Are people complaining that I said he was the founder of ISIS?"

Nonetheless, Corker, who is Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman and was under consideration as Trump's running mate before withdrawing from consideration, said he continues to back Trump.

"All I do is tell the truth. I'm a truth-teller".

Despite the growing consternation among some Republicans about Trump and dipping poll numbers, Corker said Thursday that he will stand by his position to support the Republican nominee.

"If at the end of 90 days I fall in short because I'm somewhat politically correct even though I'm supposed to be the smart one and even though I'm supposed to have a lot of good ideas, it's okay". "I would not miss an opportunity every day to talk about how I'm going to affect people's economic lives better".

You don't see that level of humility in this candidate (Trump). [If] she did say that she would say it because of me, but she's afraid to say it. "He's the most valuable player".

Trump wasn't backing off on Thursday, telling a nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host with regard to Clinton that "ISIS will hand her the MVP award".

Earlier, Corker said Obama and Clinton had made a "number of decisions" in 2011 that helped fuel the rise of the Islamic State, such as failing to take action in the Syrian civil war and providing "no follow up" in Libya, where he said chaos ensued after the government was "decapitated".

"But he's not sympathetic to them", Hewitt replied.

Hewitt asked Trump if he would acknowledge that Obama hates the Islamic State, noting that the president is "trying to kill them". "I was totally against it even though sifs [sic] civilian so nobody cared", he said. "The way he got out of Iraq, that was the founding of ISIS".

The San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority serves 28 member public agencies, 26 of which contract with Reclamation for water supply from the CVP. "Oh boy, is ISIS hoping for her", he told the NAHB crowd in Miami.

Instead, amid a flare of renewed controversy less than 3 months before the November 8 election, Trump doubled down, repeating to homebuilders in Miami Beach, Florida that Obama and Clinton founded the violent extremist group.

"This is another example of Donald Trump trash-talking the United States", senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan said. Sullivan said Trump is "echoing the talking points" of Russian President Vladimir Putin and other USA adversaries.
