Trump Announces What He Would Do As President If ISIS Attacked On US Soil

Billionaire businessman and current GOP front-runner for the 2016 election, Donald Trump has taken some interesting and unusual views on foreign policy especially when it comes to destroying the Islamic State of Iraq and The Levant (ISIS). So far, Americans have been rather receptive to his views which includes a promise to destroy the Islamic State and rebuild America’s military to the greatest it has ever been.

During an interview with MSNBC, Trump asked the interviewer if “somebody hits us within ISIS, you wouldn’t fight back with a nuke?” This might be his most shocking statement when it comes to foreign policy. The Hill believes it to be the boldest statement he has made in regards to dealing with ISIS. It has been trending recently with Americans joking about nuking the Islamic State or all of the Middle East in order to get rid of the terrorist. However, Donald J. Trump is the first candidate to actually discuss the possibility serious.

Later on in the debate, Trump said that he “would never say that. [He] would never take any of [his] cards of the table.” Later on, after realizing he may have scared some of his supporters away, he went on to stress that nuclear weapons are “sort of like the end of the ball game” but he can’t rule them out because then “you’d be a bad negotiator.” Even though nuking ISIS seems like a great way to combat them, the terrorists currently inhabit much of the territory of at least two sovereign nations. That would mean that successfully nuking ISIS would also mean nuking two other countries full of innocent people. The nuclear weapons would certainly kill tens of thousands of people, some of which will be terrorists while others are innocent people being held hostage by ISIS in their own cities.

Trump’s willingness to use nuclear weapons against other countries to protect America is something to be taken seriously. He would definitely not hesitate when it comes to attacking the Islamic State successfully. During the same interview, Trump also said he would not take nuclear weapons off the table when it comes to Europe.
