Trump’s embarrassed himself with ridiculous plan to beat ISIS

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump embarrassed himself during the “Commander-in-Chief Forum” when he espoused his bizarre foreign policy positions to an audience comprised entirely of veterans. Trump had been avoiding making gaffes in the last couple of weeks by giving only speeches which were pre-written, but with Trump being Trump that lull in his stupidity could only last so long.

The event was hosted by “Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America” and when Trump was asked about what he could have done differently in Iraq, Trump said the United States made a mistake for not taking Iraq’s oil. Trump said:

Part of the problem that we’ve had is we go in, we defeat somebody, and then we don’t know what we’re doing after that. We lose it, like, as an example, you look at Iraq—what happened. How badly that was handled. And then, when President Obama took over, and likewise—it was a disaster. It was actually somewhat stable—I don’t think it could ever be very stable, it’s a war we never should have gone into in the first place. But he came in and he said, “When we go out”—and he took everybody out. And really, ISIS was formed. This was a terrible decision, and frankly, we never even got a shot. And if you really look at the aftermath of Iraq, Iran is going to be taking over Iraq. They’ve been doing it, and it’s not a pretty picture.

I’ve always said, “Shouldn’t be there!” But if we’re gonna get out, take the oil. If we would have taken the oil, you wouldn’t have ISIS. Because ISIS formed with the power and wealth of that oil.

Trump’s lack of understanding about ISIS is staggering, as is his proposal to take oil from a sovereign nation.

The party didn’t stop there. When asked about his ‘secret’ plan to defeat ISIS, Trump said it was a secret and that he couldn’t talk about it in public. Just believe him, please, and after you vote for him then you will see he is right. Such a sales pitch is bizarre and akin to buying a car before you drive it, or buying a home before you’ve seen it.
