Continuing the second part of their conversation last night, Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly what he would do in terms of foreign policy if he were to be elected President.
First of all, he would not leave Iraq because “to the victor belong the spoils” and instead he would “stay and we keep the oil.”
“You stay and protect the oil and you take the oil and you take whatever’s necessary for them and you take what’s necessary for us and we pay ourselves back 1.5 trillion or more. We take care of Britain and you take care of other countries that helped us and we don’t be so stupid. You know, were the only country, if you look at wars over the years, and I study wars, OK? My whole life is a war. You look at wars over the years. A country goes in, they conquer and they stay. We go in, we conquer and then we leave. And we hand it to people that we don’t even know. Now, who are the people that are going to be running Iraq? The person that hates the United States the most will be running Iraq. So, in a nutshell, we go in, we take over the second largest oil fields and we stay.”
Trump expressed his support for “stopping that kind of a slaughter” in Libya, but would also make the Arab League pay for it.
“You know what the Arab League is? Saudi Arabia and a couple of others of the richest nations in the world. They said, ‘We want you to go into Libya. We don’t like Qaddafi. Get rid of Qaddafi.’ Why aren’t they paying for this?”
Trump finished up with some harsh words for President Obama, basically calling him a warmongering arse-kisser.
“Our weak President, that kisses everybody’s arse, is in more wars than I have ever seen. Now he’s in Libya, he’s in Afghanistan, he’s in Iraq. Nobody respects us.”
“This guy got the Nobel Peace Prize and every time I look is he’s going into another country.”
Never mind that two out of the three wars Obama finds himself in were started years before he became President.
