Trump demands Hillary apology Trumps Wants Clinton to Apologize
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said Monday that he wants Hillary Clinton to apologize for stating that his inflammatory comments regarding Muslims are being used as fodder by ISIS to attract recruits. Clinton said she stands by her remark and will not be issuing an apology.
Trump made his request during an appearance on the Today show where he also said that Clinton would not be a good president because of her dishonesty regarding Whitewater, emails and other matters. Clinton made her comment during the Democratic debate two nights ago despite not having any video evidence of ISIS using Trump’s Islamophobia to boost recuitment efforts.
“You can be the messenger,” Trump told Matt Lauer on the “Today” show. “I will demand an apology from Hillary. She should apologize.”
“She lies about emails,” Trump continued. “She lies about Whitewater. She lies about everything. She will be a disaster as president of the United States.”
A spokesperson for the Clinton camp said the comments were based on social media posts by ISIS members. CNN was also not able to locate any videos.
“Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” he said.
Jeb Bush engaged in a moment of solidarity with Trump, telling Bill Bennett, a conservative radio host, that Clinton had a great deal of nerve making such a remark.
Trump has weathered numerous storms during his campaign, including his statement that a group of Muslims were dancing and celebrating in New Jersey after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. He was not able to prove the incident occurred.
