TRUMP: ‘I LOVE THE FACT THAT ISIS IS BEING HIT BY RUSSIA’
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declared “I love the fact that ISIS is being hit by Russia” in an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s “CNN Tonight.”
Trump stated that Russia doesn’t respect the US or President Obama, but “At the same time, if they want to hit ISIS, that’s okay with me. I’m not going to be saying we have to do it all. You know, we’re like the policemen of the world. I’m a very strong person when it comes to the military, you and I have had this conversation before, I think it will be my big sleeper, you know, as a sleeper subject for me, I think one of my strengths will be the military. I’m very, very strong on the military. I believe so strongly in it. We’re going to build a tremendous military. Nobody’s going to mess with us. But at the same time, we have to be respected and, frankly, we’re not being respected. Nevertheless, I love the fact that ISIS is being hit by Russia.”
After host Don Lemon said, “But according to US officials, that — the areas that are being hit are not ISIS strongholds. These are areas that are propping up Assad.” Trump responded, “I’m hearing that, and I hear they’re hitting both, but I’m hearing that. And then you say to yourself, Assad, bad guy, killed hundreds of thousands of people, but you wonder what’s going to happen with the other people that we don’t know who they are. We always give weapons, we give billions of dollars in weapons, and then they turn them against us, we have no control.
