Hillary swings back at Donald Trump, but ‘doing terrorists’ work for them’ is an Obama quote

Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton lashed out at Donald Trump on Tuesday for, what she claimed, was him pushing “conspiracy theories.”

Americans “don’t need conspiracy theories and pathological self-congratulations, we need leadership, common sense and concrete plans,” she told supporters at a Pittsburgh union hall.

The conspiracy theory she appeared to be referencing was a statement Trump made to Fox & Friends on Tuesday.

“(Obama) doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands,” he said. “It’s one or the other. And either one is unacceptable.”

Clinton’s comments came hours after President Obama attacked Trump similarly.

“We fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush and imply that we are at war with an entire religion, then we are doing the terrorists’ work for them.” Obama said at a press conference Tuesday.

Still, Clinton called on Republicans to chastise Trump.

“And I have to ask, will responsible Republican leaders stand up to their presumptive nominee or will they stand by his accusation about our president?” Clinton asked the crowd rhetorically. “History will remember what we do in this moment.”

She went on to accuse her general election opponent of having only two ideas to defeat the terrorist threat.

Using the words “radical Islamic terrorism” and banning Muslims from entering the country.

“First he is fixated on the words radical Islam. Now I must say, I find this strange. Is Donald Trump suggesting that there are magic words that once uttered will stop terrorists from coming after us?” she told the crowd. “It matters what we do, not just what we say.”

And what she and President Obama have done for the past seven and a half years appears to have been ineffective, at best.

Not to be outdone, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee hit back at Clinton on social media.

But Clinton argued that banning Muslims would only help the enemy.

“It goes against everything we stand for as a country founded on religious freedom,” she said before pointing out that Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people on Tuesday night, was born in New York.

“So Muslim bans and immigration reforms would not have stopped him,” she said. “They would not have saved a single life in Orlando. And those are the only two ideas Donald’s Trump put forward yesterday for how to fight ISIS.”

Not true.

Mateen’s Taliban loving father is an immigrant from Afghanistan and if he had never come to the U.S., his terrorist son wouldn’t have been born on American soil.
