“This is an American presidential candidate who is saying this. What he says is based on facts and documents,” he said.

According to The Hill:

Trump on Wednesday called Obama the founder of ISIS and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton the co-founder.

He doubled down on the claim Thursday in an interview with Hugh Hewitt.

“No, I meant that he’s the founder of ISIS,” Trump said. “He was the most valuable player. I gave him the most valuable player award.”
