Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday that his administration would try to « take out » terrorists’ families, in addition to the militants themselves.
« With the terrorists, you have to take out their families, » Trump said during a « Fox & Friends » interview.
He argued that such tactics were necessary because the terrorists claim to not care about their own lives.
« When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families, » he repeated. « They care about their lives, don’t kid yourselves. But they say they don’t care about their lives. You have to take out their families. »
The real-estate mogul made the comments after he vowed to « knock the hell out of ISIS, » also known as the Islamic State. One of the « Fox & Friends » hosts asked him about minimizing civilian causalities, which Trump promised to do.
« I would do my best — absolute best, » Trump replied. « I mean, one of the problems that we have and one of the reasons we’re so ineffective is they’re using [civilians] as shields — it’s a horrible thing. They’re using them as shields. But we’re fighting a very politically correct war. »
