Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said that if elected to power, his administration “will stop the reckless interventions” and instead focus on “defeating and totally destroying ISIS”.
“Trump administration will stop the reckless interventions and instead focus on defeating and totally destroying ISIS.
“We’re also going to build up our cyber defenses,” Trump said at an election rally in Florida yesterday.
The US under his leadership, he said, would be using cyber offense to disrupt the enemy where it needs to and keep them from recruiting online.
“ISIS is taking our children, and taking our kids out of our country because they’re using the internet better than we know how to use it. And we’re the ones that came up with it,” he asserted.
“At the same time, we’re going to completely rebuild our very depleted military. We’re going to take care of our people.
“That includes building state-of-the-art systems of all kind. When it comes to keeping America safe, I believe in three very important words: peace through strength. We don’t want to use the military,” he said.
“A Trump administration will secure, control, defend and protect the borders of the United States, as sure as you are standing here today,” he said while reiterating that he would be aiming for construction of a wall along the Mexico border. The Government of Mexico would pay for it, he said.
“We’re going to have a great relationship with Mexico and China and all of these countries that are ripping us off and now have no respect.
“They’re going to make less and they’re going to like us more. Funny how that works, but it’s true. Mexico is making a fortune with trade. They’re taking our jobs. So many things. They are going to respect us finally,” he said. MORE PTI LKJ
Trump alleged that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton wants a 550 percent increase in Syrian refugees.
“We don’t know anything about them. This, even though she admitted in private according to WikiLeaks that she knows terrorists are trying to infiltrate our refugee program,” he alleged.
“We all have a heart, and we’ll build safe havens and we’ll have the Gulf States pay because they’re not doing their share. They have plenty of money, they’ll pay. We can’t pay. We owe $20 trillion, doubled during Obama years,” he said.
In fact, the terrorists have already infiltrated the US, he said.
“There are now 1,000 open ISIS investigations in our 50 states. Attack after attack, including the recent terror strikes in New Jersey, New York, Minnesota, as well as the mall shooting in Washington, were made possible by our extremely open immigration system that’s meant only to protect fools, and we’re not fools,” he said.
“I am going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country,” he said and alleged that Clinton is not using the word.
