Trump: Let Russia Take Care of ISIS

Russia should be allowed to pursue the battle against ISIS, according to Donald Trump.

The Hill reported that the front-running Republican presidential candidate blasted his competitors for the nomination on Friday. “They want to start World War III over Syria. Give me a break,” he said while campaigning in Oklahoma City.

“You know, Russia wants to get ISIS, right? We want to get ISIS. Russia’s in Syria. Maybe we should let them do it. Let them do it. What the hell, are we crazy?” Trump told the crowd at the state fairgrounds.

The Hill noted that Russia has been deploying troops to Syria to help the country’s President Bashar Assad fight the militant group. While U.S. leaders share the goal of defeating ISIS, they also want Assad removed from power.

The issue was one of the main subjects Putin and President Obama reportedly discussed when they met Monday at the United Nations. Both presidents spoke to the UN General Assembly earlier in the day.

Trump argued that Iran has become a larger threat to the United States as a result of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. “I said don’t go into Iran,” he declared. “Right now … Iraq is negotiating with Iran. They’re going to merge, and Iran is going to get the oil.”
