Rubio: Obama not the 'founder' of ISIS



"ISIS was founded by radical jihadists, not by the president."

-- Sen. Marco Rubio as quoted Thursday by the Naples Daily News.

Rubio, appearing before about 50 people in Naples, said he's sticking with support for Donald Trump, who made the ISIS comment a day earlier in Florida. But Rubio threw in his standard caveat.

"I think everyone has a right to make their own decision. I’ll never support Hillary Clinton,” he said. “While I may disagree with Donald on many things, I disagree with Hillary on everything.”
