Donald Trump told a crowd in Kansas City last night that the man who attempted to storm the stage during an earlier rally ”was probably ISIS or ISIS-related.” Trump also tweeted “He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail!”
This morning on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd informed Trump the Internet video on which he based his theory is a hoax.
“I don’t know if he was or not,” Trump admitted. “But all we did was put out what he had on his Internet. He’s dragging the flag, the American flag, which I respect obviously more than you.” Trump then told Todd it’s up to him to determine if the protester is actually connected to ISIS.
“We have checked it,” Todd said. “That’s my point, sir. There’s no ties to ISIS for this man.”
“All I know is what’s on the Internet,” Trump responded.
