Trump Would Support Women in Combat Roles

As the current leading Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump said on Friday that he would support women in military combat roles, but would listen to military advisers "because I would want to hear that without a political bent."

He told Chris Cuomo on CNN, "The answer is yes because they're really into it. And some of them are really, really good at it. I would really speak to the generals, because I would want to hear that without a political bent. To the public, they say, 'yes, yes, yes,' but I would want to hear it without the political bent."

The interview was broadcast after Trump spoke to thousands of supporters at an outdoor rally in Mobile, Alabama. Cuomo then asked how he would respond to Pope Francis attacking capitalism, and who is scheduled to visit the United States next week. Trump responded "I'd say, "ISIS wants to get you. Do you know that ISIS wants to go in and take over the Vatican? But the truth is that if you see what's going on, you'd better hope that capitalism works — because it's the only thing we have now. It's a great thing, when it works properly. In our country, it has not been working properly."

Trump then added "We aren't competitive like we used to be. We have to open up our country to great capitalists."
