Donald Trump: Take Iraq’s Oil Wealth and Give It to Wounded Warriors (VIDEO)
Donald Trump spoke with Chuck Todd this weekend on his plane after visiting the Iowa State Fair.
Trump said he would take Iraq’s oil and give it to Wounded Warriors.
“I say you take away their wealth. You go in, you knock the hell out of wealth, knock the hell out of their oil. Take back the oil. We take the oil which we should have done in the first place… And what I’d do with the money that we make, which would be tremendous. I would take care of the families of the soldiers that were killed, the soldiers, the Wounded Warriors I see. I love them.”
CNS News reported:
Donald Trump says he would defeat ISIS by taking over the oil fields the terrorists have seized in Iraq.
“We should definitely take back money for our soldiers,” he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd on Sunday.
“We’ve had soldiers that were decimated, so badly hurt — the wounded warriors, and killed, of course. But we’ve had soldiers that were so badly hurt and killed, I want their families to get something because we got nothing out of that war.
“We spent $2 trillion, Chuck. We had thousands of people killed. Wounded warriors all over the place, they got nothing. And they can’t even say we had a victory.”
“Now we’re there, and you have ISIS. And I said this was going to happen. I said Iran will take over Iraq, which is happening, as sure as you’re sitting there. And ISIS is taking over a lot of the oil in certain areas of Iraq. And I said, you take away their wealth. You go and knock the hell out of the oil. Take back the oil. We take over the oil, which we should have done in the first place.”
Trump agreed that taking over Iraq’s oil will require ground troops:
“It’s Ok,” he said. “We’re going to circle it (Iraq). “We’re going to circle. We’re going to have so much money, and what I would do with the money that we make, which would be tremendous, I would take care of the soldiers that were killed, the families of the soldiers that were killed, the soldiers, the wounded warriors that are — see, I love them.
