Donald Trump is all guns blazing at ISIS and recently at a campaign-style rally in Florida he vowed to ‘totally destroy’ the terrorist organisation.
The US President also said that he will be rebuilding the US army so as to ensure that the country is safe from terrorists and external threats.
Trump said that he wants to keep the country safe. He added that the country has opened its gates to thousands and thousands of people without vetting and no documentation and that’s where the real danger is.
Trump also touched on familiar rhetoric, saying the US does not “win anymore”.
“Instead of peace, we’ve seen wars that never end and conflicts that never seem to go away. We don’t fight to win. We fight politically correct wars. We don’t win anymore. We don’t win at trade. We don’t win in any capacity. We don’t win anymore. We’re going to start winning again. Believe me,” he said.
Trump has asked Defence Secretary Jim Mattis to start working towards the plan that will “totally destroy ISIS” and begin plans for “the great rebuilding” of the United States military.
Trump said he wants to build safe zones in Syria and other places so immigrants can stay there and live safely.
Trump said that he does want people to come to America but only those people who love the US. He added that he wants to let in people who “cherish us and the traditions of our country.”
“We want people that are going to be great for our country. We don’t want people with bad, bad ideas. We don’t want that,” he said.
He said he has also started taking steps to bring back jobs to the country and revive the fledging economy.
Trump, a billionaire himself, lashed out at the “so-called global elite”, saying they have done very well for themselves, leaving working families with shrinking wages.
“We have the chance…to pursue real peace, real stability and real prosperity. We want to secure our borders and protect our workers. To rebuild our military and our infrastructure.
To fix our schools and restore safety to our neighborhoods. To bring hope and opportunity to our inner cities,” he said.
The Republican, who in the run-up to the presidential elections was accused of sexually harassing women, also said he wants to ensure a “level playing field for all women in the workforce.”
