But… ISIS!

What I find, and let me just put it to you, looking at it from this side, what I can’t believe — in the wake of Barcelona — is there is still a sizable chunk of Americans who want to tear down historical statues — seeing these figures as the enemy — whereas, it’s pretty clear, Islamic terrorism is a threat to all of us.

Elites are Worse than ISIS

Undermine our courage, sap our spirit. ISIS isn’t doing that to us, our elites are — when they tell us to hate ourselves and our culture and our history, when they teach our children to despise the country that produced them, when they claim that percentage point of annual economic growth is more important than the bonds that connect us to each other.

America isn’t falling to foreign invaders, it is rotting from within because the people in charge don’t think it’s worth preserving. You have to love a civilization in order to save it, and they don’t.

[…]

We don’t hear it that much, but all of that is true. We are different from other societies. We speak freely, we protect the individual. We do write symphonies. We have no reason to be ashamed. We’ve got a lot of reasons, countless reasons to be proud, and not just of our wealth.

A civilization is not merely the sum of a country’s GDP, it’s a constellation of values, and norms, and traditions, heroes and villains, and yes, even religious beliefs. Ours is the most successful and benevolent in human history, but it is still vulnerable. All civilizations are vulnerable. Rome looked invincible at one point too, it turned out not to be.

Family Terrorists

The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. When they say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families.

Secret Plan

I directed the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS—a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs. We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.

Brilliant Strategy, Sir

I said I don’t want to really tell you, but I realized I had to because I’m getting killed by these people [in the media] who say “Trump doesn’t have a plan for ISIS!”

I said no, I have a plan but I don’t want to tell ISIS what it is, because I’m going to win…

People are thinking like I don’t have a plan, I hate doing it. So I was on one of the shows, and I said:

ISIS is making a tremendous amount of money because of the oil that they took away, they have some in Syria, they have some in Iraq, I would bomb the shit out of them.

I would just bomb those suckers, and that’s right, I’d blow up the pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, I’d blow up ever single inch, there would be nothing left.

And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there, and in two months, you ever see these guys? How good they are, the great oil companies, they’ll rebuild it brand new… And I’ll take the oil.

He Doesn’t Know What Founded Means

Isis is honoring President Obama… He is the founder of Isis. He founded Isis. And, I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.

Who’s Tough on Putin

Well, if Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia. Russia can help us fight ISIS, which by the way is, number one, tricky. I mean, if you look, this administration created ISIS by leaving at the wrong time. The void was created, ISIS was formed. If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what, folks, that’s called an asset, not a liability. Now, I don’t know that I’m going to get along with Vladimir Putin. I hope I do. But there’s a good chance I won’t. And if I don’t, do you honestly believe that Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me? Does anybody in this room really believe that? Give me a break.
