Donald Trump Speaks At Oklahoma State Fair.

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump shared more of his views on foreign policy Friday, telling an audience in Oklahoma his 2016 rivals want to “start World War III over Syria” and suggesting the U.S. let Russia take up the fight against the Islamic State in the region. “You know Russia wants to get ISIS right,” Mr.He says America’s immigration policy needs to be stricter, adding that a wall needs to be built on the border of Mexico so that only legal immigrants can enter the United States. “He talks in very general terms, and I like the general stuff he says”. “He wants to be my leader”. During his speech, he spoke about why he should be the Republican nominee for president. “I will do this, I will do that, I will attack Russian Federation and Syria”.

Meanwhile, protesters gathered at one of the fairgrounds’ main entrances to let Trump know they were not happy with his comments about immigrants. “Let them do it. He could have said anything and the crowd would have eaten it up, but Trump doubled down on his typical rhetoric and played on what makes him so popular with his supporters; he relentlessly assaulted his opponents and held nothing back, calling them “dumb”, “stupid”, “idiots”, and “morons”. “I’m not politically correct,” Trump said proudly. “I don’t want to be politically correct. What the hell are we insane?” In a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt earlier this month, Trump appeared to mix-up the names of top terrorists and confused the Kurds with the Iranian “Quds” force – a special military unit. Trump said he was opposed to the Iraq war, even though he considers himself “the most militant person here… the most militaristic person you’ll ever meet”.

As Trump, wearing a red ballcap with “Make America Great Again” in white lettering, left the stage and visited with supporters, Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” blared from speakers. “Nobody’s going to mess with us”. I believe in the military strongly, but I didn’t want to see us invade Iraq,” he said. “We spend $2 trillion dollars, thousands of lives, wounded warriors all over the place that I love by the way… we got nothing. We can’t even go over there.” The US Republican presidential candidate has on different occasions created controversy by making confused remarks on different issues during his campaign or while taking questions from journalists.

Trump initially slammed Hewitt for asking “gotcha” questions, but during the second GOP debate suggested he had just been confused by Hewitt’s pronunciation of foreign names. The billionaire real estate developer and businessman, however, continues to dominate the crowded Republican field as a recent survey shows 39 percent of Republican primary and caucus voters say Trump has the best chance of winning the White House in the 2016 presidential election.
