Donald Trump goes full Roman Emperor: "I didn't want to go there in the first place. Now we take the oil. We should have kept the oil. Now we go in and knock the hell out of them. Take their wealth. They have so much money."
DONALD TRUMP: I was not a fan of going to Iraq.
You know that very well. I said it would destabilize the Middle East. I was right. That was 2004 I said that. I was totally against it.
And yet I'm the most militaristic person there is.
Now that we're there and guys are chopping off Christians' heads and other people's heads, and lots of bad things happening.
They'll come for us if we don't come for them.
I say, cut them off where they're getting wealth. Cut them off at the oil.
I said keep the oil because somebody else will take it, I said it on your show many times, guess who took it? ISIS took it.
By the way, Iran is taking it. Everybody is taking it but us. We spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives, incredible wounded warriors. I love the wounded warriors. People are incredible.
Wounded warriors all over the place, and we have nothing. They don't answer our phone calls anymore.
Iran is taking over Iraq 100%, just like I predicted years ago.
I say this, I didn't want to go there in the first place. Now we take the oil. We should have kept the oil. Now we go in and knock the hell out of them. Take their wealth. They have so much money.
They have better internet connections than we do in the United States. They're training our kids through the internet.
We have to take out their wealth. The other thing for Saudi Arabia and other places, tremendous money flowing. We have to stop the flow of money. Take the oil, knock the hell out of them.
