sorry not sorry

Clinton campaign: 'Hell no' she won't apologize to Trump over ISIS recruiting claim

Donald Trump, recent PolitiFact Lie of the Year honoree, demanded an apology earlier Monday from Hillary Clinton. She had claimed at Saturday's Democratic presidential debate that the Islamic State uses videos of Trump's anti-Muslim rhetoric to recruit terrorists.

Indeed, Clinton was technically incorrect — both PolitiFact and The Washington Post reported there's no evidence to indicate such a recruiting tactic actually exists. But is the Democratic presidential frontrunner going to apologize to Trump?

"Hell no," campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told ABC News on Monday. "Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists."
