A CNN guest apologized on Monday shortly after claiming on air that President Donald Trump has radicalized more people than ISIS.
Julia Ioffe, a correspondent for GQ Magazine, made the claim during “The Lead with Jake Tapper” and experienced no pushback from the host.
Ioffe’s comments were immediately called out and highlighted by Twitter users, including the Republican National Committee’s Steve Guest, who said it was “one of the most ridiculous things ever said on @CNN.”
