Republican frontrunner Donald Trump blasted Clinton for saying on Saturday’s Democratic debate hosted by ABC News on December 19, 2015 that he “is becoming ISIS’s best recruiter.”
According to Clinton, the IS group was “going to people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
Trump lashed out at Clinton on ABC’s “This Week,” insisting that no such video exists and that news reporters have been unable to find one.
“They may make one up, knowing the Clintons and knowing Hillary,” he said. “I mean, she made it up. It was a sound bite.”
Clinton campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri, interviewed later on ABC, said that her candidate was “not referring to a specific video.”
Trump however is “being used in social media by ISIS as propaganda… to help recruiting,” Palmieri said.
Palmieri referred to groups that monitor IS social media, which she said report that jihadists are “using him as propaganda to help recruit supporters.”
