There are so many evils in the world that many people simply do not know how to deal with them and how to respond to them. Fear, hatred, morale, and action are all responses to the terror that is gripping the world right now, and some people want to do everything they can to stomp out terrorism.
One person who has been giving signs of relief and promises on the end of terror has been presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump knows that people are afraid of terrorism, and it is his mission to do everything he can to stomp out terror in our world, and he is willing to take some pretty drastic measures to do so.
Trump was interviewed on 60 Minutes, a popular show that delves into politics and deep news stories, where he was asked about his plan on how to deal with ISIS. Trump was certainly ready to give a response, and he was not going to let anything stop him from saying what he believed needed to be done.
In one simple statement, Trump lays down his plan when asked what he is going to do if elected by saying, “We have to wipe out ISIS”. Trump said that he will do what is necessary which is declaring war on ISIS formals, and his first step is going to be gathering intelligence. Right now, we do not have enough intelligence on ISIS according to Trump to send people on the ground over there, so that is his first course of action.
He also commented on NATO and how he plans to get that organization involved as well saying, “We’re going to have surrounding states and, very importantly, get NATO involved because we support NATO far more than we should, frankly, because you have a lot of countries that aren’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing. We have to wipe out ISIS.”
Trump is also attempting to win the love of Bernie Sanders supporters who are torn between Trump and Clinton. Trump has been blaming the existence of ISIS on Clinton, and repeated what Sanders said back in July by voicing the fact that he believes her foreign policy is the worst you can get.
Sanders has endorsed Clinton due to the fact that he will no longer be in the race, however this type of endorsement does not carry as much weight as Sanders would like due to the fact that he released videos talking about how Clinton’s foreign policy led to the deaths of over 160,000 civilians in Iraq.
Trump was also asked why he is working with Pence then, who also voted for the Iraq war, to which Trump replied, “Everyone’s entitled to make a mistake one in a while”.
Trump’s forward policies and huge strives to stamp out ISIS is luring in voters due to the violence the terrorist group is causing, and people are hoping that the world will be free from their grip soon enough.
