Donald Trump took his terrorism blame game a step further on Wednesday, saying at a Florida rally that Hillary Clinton should get an “award” from ISIS as the “founder” of the terror group.

“Take a look at Orlando, take a look at San Bernardino. Take a look at the World Trade Center,” Trump told the Daytona Beach crowd. “Take a look at what’s going on and then worldwide, and we let ISIS take this position.”

He then quipped: “It was Hillary Clinton, that, she should get an award from them as the founder of ISIS.”

Moments later, a “Lock her up!” chant broke out in the crowd.

The Republican presidential nominee has made the case before that the policies of the Obama administration (with Clinton as secretary of state) led to the rise of the terrorist group ISIS.
