TRUMP speaketh truth for a change

27 12 2015

The dangerous “genius” (dare I say) of Trump is not just knowing how to play to the fearful, narcissistic, ignorant instincts of so many Americans, but in also occasionally sticking it to the mainstream foreign policy establishment which he knows has both parties in its grip.   And so when Trump said this at the last debate, even I took a deep breadth, heard, and remember.

“We’ve spent $4 trillion trying to topple various people that, frankly, if they were there and if we could have spent that $4 trillion in the United States to fix our roads, our bridges, and all of the other problems — our airports and all the other problems we have — we would have been a lot better off, I can tell you that right now.

We have done a tremendous disservice not only to the Middle East — we’ve done a tremendous disservice to humanity. The people that have been killed, the people that have been wiped away — and for what? It’s not like we had victory. It’s a mess. The Middle East is totally destabilized, a total and complete mess. I wish we had the 4 trillion dollars or 5 trillion dollars. I wish it were spent right here in the United States on schools, hospitals, roads, airports, and everything else that are all falling apart!”
