On Wednesday, Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump shared an article on Twitter from Breitbart that suggests Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton supported ISIS.
Politico reported: Donald Trump reaffirmed his insinuation that President Barack Obama secretly harbors pro-terrorist sympathies, linking to a Breitbart article reporting that as secretary of state, “Hillary Clinton received a classified intelligence report stating that the Obama administration was actively supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State.”

The Breitbart article itself cites a 2012 document obtained by the conservative group Judicial Watch, which it reported as an intelligence information report produced by the Defense Intelligence Agency. In the memo, Al Qaeda in Iraq, part of the group that evolved into the Islamic State, is represented through Muhammad Al Adnani, who was named as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the State Department in 2014.
