Arizona Democratic Party Chair Claims Trump 'Aligned Himself with ISIS’
Chairman Felecia Rotellini makes false claims about the president
Arizona Democrat Party Chairman Felecia Rotellini claimed that President Donald Trump “has aligned himself with ISIS" during a discussion at the Citizens Clean Elections Commission’s “We the Voters” conference.
The unhinged Democrat made the remarks just hours before the White House announced that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed.
“Another reason that people are going to vote, because Donald Trump is manipulating that White House and has aligned himself with ISIS and Saudi Arabia,” Rotellini said before being cut off by Arizona Republican Party Chairman Dr. Kelli Ward.
“The most important thing we can do today is vote for civility, vote for a president who is not going to align himself with the most dangerous foreign nations that are the reason we had 9/11.”
Ward later blasted Rotellin calling her remarks “wildly irresponsible and not rooted in reality.”
Wards statement to The DailyWire below:
It is extremely disconcerting to hear the top Democrat in Arizona slander and malign an innocent person for being aligned with the world’s most evil terrorists, let alone the President of the United States.
While fear-mongering from the Left is expected up to a point, we have to draw the line somewhere if they’re going to refuse to police themselves.
Baseless statements like those made by the chair of the Arizona Democrat party are wildly irresponsible and not rooted in reality.
“When controversy appears, Mark Kelly likes to disappear and go silent,” said NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez.

“But this time, Kelly’s silence makes him complicit in baseless, malicious rhetoric from his state party. Arizona voters won’t stand for it.”
The leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was killed in Syria during a special operation by US forces on Sunday.
Before the news was officially confirmed, President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday evening that "Something very big has just happened!"
The White House has also issued announced that "major news" would be revealed during an official statement from DC at 9 a.m. Sunday.
Citing a "well-placed military source," Fox News reported the Islamic State group leader, who reportedly had a $25 million bounty on his head, is believed to have been killed in Syria.
