Republican Presidential Nominee, Donald Trump on his first joint interview with his vice presidential candidate mike pence has blamed Hillary Clinton, Democratic Presidential nominee for the rise of ISIS.
Trump made the accusation when he and his vice presidential candidate Mike Pence gave their first joint interview to 60 Minutes.
Trump said,”In 2009 – pre-Hillary – ISIS was not even on the map,” Trump said during the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on Thursday at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Libya was stable, Egypt was peaceful, Iraq was seeing a really, a big big reduction of violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions; Syria was somewhat under control – after years of Hillary Clinton, what do we have?”
“ISIS has spread across the region, Libya is in ruins – and our ambassador and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. Egypt was turned over to the radical Muslim Brotherhood, forcing the military to re-take control. Iraq is in chaos, Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons, Syria is engulfed in a civil war, and refugee crisis now threatens the West”.
“After 15 years of wars in the Middle East, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton – death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,”
“My message is that things have to change – and they have to change right now. I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you.”
