‘I would knock the hell out of them’: Trump on strategy to fight ISIS

  • Written by:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is notorious for staying mum about his plans to fight ISIS but the business tycoon recently revealed his controversial plan to fight terror.

According to CNN, Trump spoke on Monday to propose an ideological test in addition to regular screening tests to determine which immigrants hold radicalized Muslim views.

Trump’s speech included other proposals, such as taking their oil and continued airstrikes.

“The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. I call it extreme vetting. I call it extreme, extreme vetting,” Trump declared in his Ohio campaign.

Trump didn’t stop there. He openly spoke of how to hit the Islamic State where it hurts – their black gold cash cow.

“Let me tell you what I would do. I would, they have great money because they have oil. They have much oil. I would, every place where they have oil, I would knock the hell out of them and I would put boots on the ground in those areas. I would take the oil. What you’re doing is you’re cutting off a big portion of their money source.

“The other part of their money source, by the way, happens to be banks. Money is flowing in through banks in Saudi Arabia and other places. You have to cut that off. But, I would knock out the source of their wealth.

“The primary source of their wealth which is oil. And in order to do that, you would have to put boots- I would knock the hell out of them, but I would put a ring around it and take the oil for our country. I would just take the oil.”

USA Today reported Trump believes closer ties with Russia can help end the reign of terror from ISIS.

“Wouldn’t that be a good thing?” Trump asked, adding his plan to add tests for incoming immigrants would help keep America safe.

Trump’s critics were quick to speak out against the Republican candidate, with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid openly mocking him: “He would almost certainly fail, given his general ignorance and weak grasp of basic facts about American history, principles and functioning of our government.

Strong words coming from a Senator whose only strategies are vague ideas, such as “improving migrant screening” and “imposing touch new sanctions” to banks working with ISIS.

Could Trump’s proposals work? Perhaps. Are they controversial? Yes. Would they defeat ISIS faster and bring a heightened strength to the United States? Only time and implementation could tell. Either way, the country remains divided on how best to destroy the Islamic threat.

    A lot of words saying nothing. Why? Are you a Trump supporter? If so, don’t be shy about it. If you are a critic of him, then just lambast him, which is what he deserves.
