The way Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) sees it, President Barack Obama has been supporting Islamic jihad “at every turn.”

“And I have been very surprised, to answer your question, to see the President of the United States, at every turn, cut the legs off of our ally, Israel, and in fact embrace and lift up the agenda of Islamic jihad,” Bachmann said during an interview on Washington Watch, hosted by the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins.

Bachmann’s comments, flagged by Buzzfeed on Wednesday, were referring to a Wall Street Journal report which said that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Obama had exchanged secret letters about fighting the Islamic State.

“Now when in the world — and by that, I mean the goals of the Islamic State, the fact that they want their own state,” Bachmann said. “Our president, we know now, is writing secret notes to the Ayatollah in Iran; there’s a recent report that the President is trying to have private meetings with the Ayatollah in Iran. Iran is very clear about their goal — their goal is to have a nuclear weapon. They’ve said, unequivocally, they will use it against the United States and against Israel.”
