Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump is the 'best recruiter' for ISIS

In response to an FT article by Demetri Sevastopulo on 21st December 2015, entitled 'Obama attacks Trump for 'exploiting' economic and cultural fears'

"Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, accused him of being the “best recruiter” for Isis over his anti-Muslim comments"

Thanks Mrs's all becoming clear was me thinking that decades of the US/UK supporting one tyrant against another, invading sovereign states, using black ops to pursue regime change, and spending millions recruiting, arming and training the 'moderates'...were competing to be the main 'reason' that tens of thousands of dreadfully damaged people want to kill us specifically...I was wrong...clearly the thing that has tipped the balance is an idiot who has added Muslims to his list of people to rant about. 

God bless America - she'll need it - the presidential race is looking increasingly like a choice between a weasel and a baboon.
