The candidate in US presidents from Republican party, Donald trump called “insanity” and “idiocy” the idea at the same time to fight against President Bashar al-Assad and the “Islamic state” (organization banned in Russia). This statement trump made in an interview with The New York Times.
“I think the idea of the simultaneous fight against Assad and ISIS was madness and idiocy. They fight with each other, and we are fighting against both of them”, he said. “I think for us the ISIL is a much more serious problem than Assad <…> I’m not saying Assad is a good man, because it is not. But our main problem is not Assad, but ISIL”, he explained.
Trump also believes that the U.S. is fighting ISIL in full force. “I said, take the oil [the militants]. I’ve said it for years <…> They never took her away,” said the billionaire.
According to her, using the oil ISIS gets huge profits. “They [the militants] are getting a lot of money. I said, cut off Bank channels. You know, they have a very sophisticated banking channels, which I understand, but others I think do not understand. Many people in countries, which, we believe, are our allies, give the ISIS a lot of money, and it all happens after dark banking channels. We should block them, but I think we didn’t do anything to stop them,” concluded trump.
