On Trump's Claim that Obama and Hillary Created ISIS

Strictly speaking, of course he's wrong (the fact that it was George Bush who a) invaded Iraq and created the initial destabilization and b) signed the Status of Forces Agreement which mandated our departure) but having said that neither is the dude entirely full of shit. The fact of the matter is that it was under Obama and Hillary that a) the Afghan conflict was expanded, b) Gadaffi in Libya was overthrown, c) weapons were poured into the region in an effort to overthrow Assad in Syria, and d) the drone program was increased SIX-FOLD and expanded into numerous countries - all of which added to the destabilization and made it much easier for terrorist groups to recruit. Granted, a lot of this stuff probably isn't even on Trumps radar BUT if he's as smart as he claims to be.............
