Trump Just Revealed His Plan to Combat ISIS – Is He on to Something?


Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, spoke with the Morning Joe crew at MSNBC, and revealed his foreign policy platform on dealing with Islamic State terrorists.

“I would knock the hell out of them,” Trump told Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations. “I would put boots on the ground” because “we have to take them out and we have to take them out strongly.”

The other aspect of Trump’s plan? Taking their oil.

Trump explained that ISIS terrorists have vast amounts of wealth due to their oil supplies. His plan would be to target those areas to cut off their funding.

It would be “cutting off a big portion of their money source,” he analyzed.

What would he do next?

“Take the oil for our country,” Trump stated rather succinctly. “I just take the oil.”

Here is the full transcript of the segment:

HAASS: “Donald, let’s continue with policy for a second. What is your approach to ISIS in both Iraq and Syria? How seriously do you take it and what would be the outlines of your approach?”

TRUMP: “Well, I take it very serious because these are mad people. These are people that have to be taken seriously. Again, I didn’t want to go into Iraq in 2004 and we went there so now we totally knocked out the balance. What we’ve done in the Middle East is incredible. It’s incredible. But when you have people going around cutting off Christians’ heads and everyone else’s head and saying what they’re saying and doing what they’re doing, it’s incredible. We have to take them out and we have to take them out strongly. You know, Joe and Mika can tell you Richard –”

HAASS: “From your position, taking them out strongly, would that involve a potential reintroduction of U.S. ground forces (indecipherable)?”

TRUMP: “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 so – I would boots on the ground in those areas. I would take the oil. Because 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. In order to do that, you would have to put — I would knock the hell out of them but I would put a ring around it and take the oil for our country. I just take the oil.”

Comment: Do you support Donald Trump’s plan to put boots on the ground and take the oil from ISIS to use for our own country?

    Why are people continuing to press him on his approach to defeating ISIS? He’s said enough already. What idiot would give specific details about how they are going to defeat the opposition? Some people incredibly stupid.

  2. “The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas.”—Journalist Lewis Lapham

    When in doubt, just remember what comedian and astute commentator George Carlin had to say about the matter:

    The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.

    They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. …The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.

    taking there oil is the same as spoils of war go for it

    Half & Half. Yes I support kicking the hell out of them. No, I do not support taking their oil. It is not a good idea to give the U.S. Military or political leaders a financial incentive to go to war. The U.S. Military would become little more than a mercenary army.
