Trump: ‘Take Away’ Oil Revenue From ISIS

Donald Trump suggested Sunday that the key to beating ISIS is depriving the militant group of the money it makes from oil sales, The Hill reported.

“I’m looking to take the oil. I want to take the oil. I want the oil,” the Republican presidential candidate said on “This Week” on ABC. “We have to stop the source of money, and the source of money is oil. … We’re going to have to take away the energy, the fuel, the money from ISIS.”

Trump also addressed the recent crash of a Russian plane in Egypt, warning that the incident is a threat to Americans and others. “You know, if you stop transportation, I mean, you’re talking about the blood – the blood of the world, and we’re going to have to be very, very strong,” he said.

The billionaire businessman declined to support the deployment of U.S. ground troops to Syria. He referred to the region as “one big, fat quagmire” and called on other nations to help the United States defeat ISIS. Trump cautioned that U.S. officials must avoid long-term entanglements in the Middle East, The Hill reported.

After leading the GOP presidential race for more than three months, Trump finished second to Ben Carson in a pair of recent national polls. However, a survey released last week showed the real-estate tycoon back on top by a narrow margin.
