Trump: ‘I Would Bomb the Hell Out of the Oil Fields’ in Iraq to Fight ISIS

trumpBefore he announced his presidential run, you may remember that Donald Trump bragged that he knows how to defeat ISIS, but won’t tell yet because he doesn’t want to give his military secrets away to the terrorists.

Well, in his interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper tonight, Trump reluctantly gave details, after making it incredibly clear he doesn’t want to do this.

He said that he would be “so tough” with ISIS, “I don’t know if they’d be around to come to the table.” Specifically, he wants to “attack the various oil sites… controlled by ISIS.”

Cooper asked him about the potential consequences of such an action. Trump insisted, “I would bomb the hell out of those oil fields. I wouldn’t send many troops because you won’t need them by the time I’m finished.”
