Rudy Giuliani spoke out against Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night, saying that she “could be considered a founding member of ISIS.” The former New York City mayor said on Fox News Channel's “The O’Reilly Factor,” that Clinton shares responsibility in the creation of the terrorist organization, because she was secretary of state during President Obama’s first term. “She helped create ISIS,” Giuliani said. “Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS.”

When host Bill O’Reilly asked Giuliani how that makes her responsible, Giuliani elaborated saying, “By being part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq. By being part of an administration that let [former Prime Minister Nouri al-] Maliki run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew 12 lines in the sand and made a joke out of it.”

O’Reilly responded by pointing out that Clinton couldn’t force policy on Pres. Obama. Her only option, he said, would have been to resign. “Yeah — which is what a patriot does,” Giuliani replied.

While it’s clear that Hillary Clinton is not the former mayor’s choice of candidate, it seems he has chosen the Republican front-runner for his vote. Giulianisaid on Monday that he will probably endorse Donald Trump for president, but wants to “think about it a little bit more” before voting. “The way I look at it, there really are only three people who will be the next president of the United States. One’s Hillary Clinton, the other’s Donald Trump, and the third is Ted Cruz,” he said at an event hosted by the Columbia University College Republicans group. “So I’ll choose between those three," he said. "I’ll give you a hint: it won’t be Hillary Clinton. I seriously doubt it will be Ted Cruz. But I just want to think about it a little bit more before I do anything formally."
