National security adviser Susan Rice has emerged as one of the biggest figures of deception of the Obama administration, billionaire businessman Donald Trump said Monday on Fox News.

Mr. Trump ripped Mrs. Rice’s assertion Sunday on NBCs’s “Meet the Press” that she wasn’t being insincere by telling the American public that the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead stemmed from spontaneous anger over an anti-Muslim video, rather than terrorists.

“The notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false. And I think that’s been amply demonstrated,” Mrs. Rice said.

Mr. Trump vehemently disagreed.

“It’s a big lie,” Mr. Trump said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “And I think now it’s even a bigger lie, after everything that’s been determined.

“The level of arrogance and the level of lying is so incredible,” he said. “Benghazi, unbelievably, is being taken off the front pages. It just has never resonated. But you look at the answers that she and other people are giving and it’s disgraceful. It’s a big, fat, juicy lie. And now she continues to say it, in spite of all of the evidence. … It’s hard to believe they can get away with it.”
