Trump: Obama treats Muslims ‘far better’ than Israel

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday accused President Barack Obama of treating Muslim nations far better than he treats Israel, “>insisted that he “was referring to the fact that at times President Obama seems more in support of Muslims than Israel.”

Hillary Clinton, speaking at a campaign rally in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, called out Trump’s suggestion that President Obama is siding with terrorists. “Even in a time of divided politics, this is beyond anything that should be said by someone running for President of the United States,” she said. “What Donald Trump is saying is shameful. It is disrespectful to the people who were killed and wounded, and their families. And it is yet more evidence that he is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be Commander in Chief.” 

Clinton urged “responsible” Republicans to rebuke Trump’s rhetoric, saying, “History will remember what we do in this moment. Americans don’t need conspiracy theories and pathological self-congratulations.”
