Lauer Presses Trump on His Claim He Knows More About ISIS Than U.S. Generals Do

screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-9-09-28-pmDonald Trump has said quite a few things over the last year that have caught voters and analysts off-guard, but when he said, “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me,” it was really shocking. That’s why Matt Lauer asked him about it tonight during the NBC Commander in Chief Forum.

Trump didn’t really give a good explanation for his claim to the veterans assembled there. He tried to shift the blame for his statement, somehow, to President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. He said they reduced the generals to “rubble,” then said the generals are currently embarrassing for our country.

Watch above.
