Trump Targets ISIS: ‘Knock Them Out Hard’

President Obama is “weak and ineffective” in protecting the country from terrorists, Donald Trump charged Monday during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

The Republican White House hopeful ridiculed the administration’s policies in the Middle East, according to The Hill. “We have a president who just doesn’t get it it,” he said.

The candidate commented that last week’s attacks in Paris, which killed at least 129 people, demonstrated the need for better military intelligence about ISIS. “This is like no other war we’ve ever had,” he said. “This is a war, believe me. We’re going to have to knock them out and knock them out hard.”

The Hill noted that most of the Republicans running for president have called for a more aggressive effort to defeat the extremist group, which claimed responsibility for the shootings and bombings in Paris.

In the MSNBC interview, Trump repeated his argument that U.S. forces should bomb and reclaim the oil fields in Iraq that ISIS seized. “That’s a significant source of their wealth,” he noted.

According to the billionaire businessman, Hillary Clinton’s response to the Paris attacks showed she “still refuses to say what it is that’s happening.” He added: “I mean, she probably thinks these people come from Sweden or something.”

Trump said once again that “you would have had a lot different story” if France allowed its citizens to carry guns.
