The day after an ISIS-suspected terror attack in Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport killed 41 and injured scores more, Donald Trump pledged to annihilate the Islamic State.
“We have to give them a big, fat, ugly defeat,” Trump said at a rally in Bangor, Maine. “We have to defeat them fast.”
The Republican presidential candidate blamed his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for the terror state’s rise.
“ISIS was formed during her tenure,” he said. “ISIS is now worse than ever … ISIS is now strong.”
Trump said the terror group’s continued success in pulling off major attacks is fueling its rise. “They’re taking our youth. You know why they’re taking our youth? Because they look like they’re winning,” he said.
Trump said that ISIS – and the world –would “respect” America again under a President Trump.
The respect, he said, would mean the U.S. would be less likely to go to war. “I would be the slowest with the button,” Trump said.
The GOP candidate’s pledge came the same day a Quinnipiac University poll found that a majority of Americans — 52 percent — believe he’d be more effective against ISIS than Clinton—39 percent.
Trump also brought his anti-globalization—and anti-China—message to Maine, where he vowed to bring back jobs to America and destroy the growing terror state.
“They may make the product, but we lose the jobs,” he said of China.
Trump maintained that he defies labels when it comes to trade and is not necessarily a free trader or a fair trader.
“I’ll do it all different ways,” he said, in pursuit of “the greatest trade deals in the history of this country.”
Trump also escalated his battle with the GOP-aligned Chamber of Commerce.
“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is totally controlled by the special interest groups, folks, just so you understand it,” he said.
