Donald Trump has been taking a lot of flak for his claim that Barack Obama is the “founder of ISIS,” a claim he later doubled-down on (before later insisting it was sarcasm). It’s led to another string of bad media for the Trump campaign, who is undoubtedly looking for good news and support in their hour of need.
The leader of Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group quoted Trump at a rally in the country’s south Saturday, saying the presidential candidate’s statements were based on facts.
Hassan Nasrallah says: “this is an American presidential candidate who is saying this. What he says is based on facts and documents.”
Trump is desperately in need of allies, but I’m not exactly sure how well this one is going to work out for him. Because, you know, Hezbollah is a terrorist organization and all that. But, at this point, Trump really needs some allies to back him. Everyone says he’s severely lacking in the global policy department, and I think supporters like Russia and Hezbollah really show that he’s totally got this covered.
