Donald Trump is continuing his controversial comments.

During a Wednesday rally in Florida, Trump accused president Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton of co-founding ISIS, ABC News reports.

“ISIS is honoring president Obama,” Trump said. “He is the founder of ISIS. He founded ISIS. And, I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”

According to the network, rally-goers responded to the accusations with chants of “Lock her up!”

The Republican presidential nominee continued, criticizing the commander in chief for the way he’s described terrorist attacks in the past, saying that President Obama “refuses to use the term radical Islamic terrorism.”

“And Hillary won’t say it either,” he added. “She doesn’t wanna say it, cause she doesn’t wanna offend the president, because then bad things could happen to her if she offends the president. But, we have a real problem with radical Islamic terror. It’s what it is. It’s terror.”

Wednesday’s comments follow right behind Trump’s suggestions about Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

At a Wilmington, North Carolina rally, the billionaire businessman accused Clinton of wanting to “abolish the Second Amendment,” before seemingly insinuating that gun-owners take action against her.

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Trump said to the crowd. “Although the Second Amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”

According to CNN, US Secret Service had had “more than one conversation” with Trump about the incident and Clinton responded to the comments on Wednesday at her Iowa rally.

“Word matter my friends, and if you are running to be president or you are president of the United States, words can have tremendous consequences,” she said. “Yesterday we witnessed the latest in a long line of casual comments from Donald Trump that cross the line.”
