Fresh off his second place finish in Iowa, GOP national frontrunner Donald Trump upped his anti-ISIS rhetoric at a rally tonight in Milford, New Hampshire.
“If we are attacked, somebody attacks us, wouldn’t you rather have Trump as president if we’re attacked?” Trump said. “Oh, we’ll beat the sh*t out of them.”
“And speaking of potential — because he hates Obama so much — Putin, he said ‘Donald Trump is a genius,’ and he’s the real leader over in that country,” Trump said.
“I’m not disavowing that he called me genius, are you crazy? Don’t worry, I can’t be seduced,” he added.
Trump urged better relations with Russia.
“But wouldn’t it be nice… if we actually got along with Russia and others, and we can use them to knock out ISIS with us so that maybe we don’t always have to pay for it… Knock the hell out of them, but let them drop some of their bombs that cost $1 million apiece. Let them use some of their weapons that cost billions of dollars,” Trump said.
“Let them beat the sh*t out of ISIS also, right? Right?” he added.
