SCRANTON, Pennsylvania — Donald Trump's charge that President Barack Obama was one of the founders of ISIS is making American troops less safe around the world, Vice President Joe Biden said here Monday.
Speaking at a rally in this city to promote Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, Biden lashed out at Trump. The vice president said that his late son, Beau, who served in Iraq, would have been endangered by the remarks that Trump made during a rally and repeated on CNBC last Thursday.
"I can say without hesitation, no major party nominee in the history of the United States of America was no less prepared to deal with your national security than Donald Trump," Biden said.
Biden pointed out that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah used Trump's accusation to criticize U.S. policy.
"This is not simple speech," Nasrallah has quoted as saying. "This is an American presidential candidate. This was spoken on behalf of the American Republican Party.. He has data and documents."
Biden repeated the Nasrallah quote during the rally.
Trump "doesn't seem to think (foreign policy) matters," Biden said. "This man is totally, thoroughly unqualified to be president of the United States of America."
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
