Correction

Via The Hill:

Donald Trump said Wednesday that President Obama “founded” the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“ISIS is honoring President Obama,” he said during a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.  “He’s the founder of ISIS. He founded ISIS.”

“I would say the co-founder would be ‘Crooked’ Hillary Clinton,” Trump added of Obama’s former secretary of State and his Democratic rival.

Trump criticized Obama’s decision to withdraw U.S. military forces from the Middle East and leaving behind a void ISIS could fill.

“We should never have gotten out the way we got out,” he said. “We unleashed terrible fury all over the Middle East.”

No, that would have been George W. Bush who sent our troops to war in the first place in 2003 based on misinformation and outright lies.  The fact that then-Sen. Hillary Clinton and a number of Democrats voted to go along with it proves that the only thing the Bush administration got right about going to war in Iraq was lying about it.
