The Gloves Come Off: Trump Says ‘We Have Been Restrained. We have Got To Get Rid Of ISIS’ (Video)
Trump Gives Speech To CIA
On Saturday, Donald Trump told a packed room of CIA agents that they will play a very important role in keeping America safe. The stop to the CIA was the first official stop that President Trump made as President.
Trump insisted that the dishonest media had overblown his criticisms of the intelligence community and that he is a huge supporter of the CIA.
From The Daily Mail:
‘We’ve been fighting these wars for longer than any wars we’ve ever fought,’ Trump said, apparently in reference to the global war on jihadi extremists that has surpassed officially ‘declared’ wars in length and cost.
‘We have not used the real abilities that we have. We’ve been restrained,’ he lamented, hinting that American spies and counterterrorism agents could soon find once-banned tradecraft methods available to them again.
‘We have to get rid of ISIS. We have to get rid of ISIS,’ Trump said. ‘We have no choice.’
‘Radical Islamic terrorism, and I said it yesterday, has to be eradicated. Just off the face of the earth. This is evil. This is evil.’
Trump told a capacity crowd of 400 that unlike ‘wars between countries’ whose genesis can be easily understood, the depths of Islamist rage at the root of the ISIS terror campaign ‘is something nobody can even understand. This is a level of evil that we haven’t seen.
Standing in front of a wall memorializing the deaths of necessarily nameless CIA officers, the new president declared: ‘You’re going to go to it, and you’re going to do a phenomenal job. But we’re going to end it. It’s time. It’s time right now to end it.’
Trump then again reiterated his support of the CIA saying “I am with you 1,000 per cent.”
