Donald Trump is demanding an apology after Hillary Clinton called him "ISIS’ best recruiter."
I demand an apology from Hillary Clinton for the disgusting story she made up about me for purposes of the debate. There never was a video.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2015
Hillary said at debate ISIS is "going to people showing videos in order to recruit more radical jihadistst." She made up story-want apology!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2015
She made the claim during the Democratic debate on Saturday, saying: “He is becoming ISIS’ best recruiter. They are going out people showing videos of Donald Trump insulting Islam and Muslims in order to recruit more radical jihadists.”
"It's just another Hillary lie," Trump said on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday. "She lies like crazy about everything -- whether it's trips where she was being gunned down in a helicopter, or an airplane. She's a liar and everybody knows that."
Hillary's claims were fact checked by the website Politifact and they found no evidence that ISIS is using videos of Trump to recruit jihadists.
A communications director for Clinton, Jennifer Palmieri, backtracked on ABC’s This Week, saying the presidential candidate “didn’t have a particular video in mind.”
Trump also took Palmieri to task on Twitter:
Hillary Clinton spokesperson admitted that their was no ISIS video of me. Therefore, Hillary LIED at the debate last night. SAD!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 20, 2015
A new Fox News poll shows Clinton beating Trump in a hypothetical general election match-up with her at 50 percent of the vote and Trump with 40 percent.
