Remember that time Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump's comments about Muslims were being used by terrorist groups to recruit new terrorists? Politifact rated the comment flat-out "false" earlier this month, reporting that there was no evidence to support it, but now there is.

A video from the Al-Shabab militant group titled "The Path To Paradise" encourages black Americans to convert to Islam and join the Jihad, and features Trump's words alongside video of Anwar al-Awlaki​, the U.S.-born cleric and al-Qaeda operative who was killed in a drone strike two years ago, ABC News reports.
