A spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign told The Wall Street Journal Monday that she wouldn’t apologize to GOP front runner Donald Trump for calling him the Islamic State’s best recruiter.
Clinton had said at the 2016 Democratic debate Saturday that Trump had become “ISIS’ best recruiter” and was featured in the organization’s recruitment videos. Politifact later ruled that there was “no evidence” to support Clinton’s statement, and Trump demanded Monday that she apologize.
But Trump won’t likely get his apology. When the WSJ asked Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon if she would say sorry, he said: “Hell no.”
“Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” Fallon said.
