Donald Trump accused President Barack Obama of establishing the Islamic State terrorist group that is wreaking havoc from the Middle East to European cities.
He made the preposterous allegation at an event attended by former Republican Congressman Mark Foley, who resigned after he disgraced himself by having gay sex with teenage boys.
Meanwhile, Trump was planning to make an appearance at an anti-LGBT event in Orlando today.
The organizers of the “Rediscovering God in America Renewal Project” in Orlando announced that Trump will make a “surprise” appearance. It was not said if Foley was invited to the religious event.
Foley was prominent showing up in video of the rally broadcast nationally on several cable news stations where Trump repeatedly accused the American president of being the ‘founder of ISIS’ despite the absurdity of his claim.
A moment later on another topic, he referred to the president by his full legal name: Barack Hussein Obama, giving credence to arguments that the billionaire is pinning his hope for victory on bigotry and ignorance among voters.
Obama gave orders to kill Usama bin Laden and commanded US military strikes in seven nations in a campaign to destroy the self declared caliphate.
Obama’s parents were a black Kenyan man who came to America to attend college and a white woman from Kansas, whose ancestry traces back to the Mayflower.
He was born in Hawaii on Aug. 5, 1961, but Trump made headlines alleging the first black president was not a natural citizen, a charge that remains popular among ignorant racists.
