Trump calls Clinton 'liar' for Islamic State recruiting claim

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Trump speaks at a campaign event at the Veterans Memorial Building in Cedar RapidsBy Alana Wise WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Sunday that Democrat Hillary Clinton was a “liar” for claiming that his proposal to ban entry of all foreign Muslims into the United States has aided Islamic State’s propaganda efforts. Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump said Clinton had no evidence to back up a charge she made during a debate on Saturday that the Republican frontrunner is becoming the extremist group’s “best recruiter.” “She’s a liar and everybody knows that,” Trump said. “She just made this up in thin air.” Trump’s call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States following a Jan. 2 attack in San Bernardino, California that killed 14 people has drawn widespread criticism from Republican rivals as well as Democrats like Clinton.
