On Dec. 2, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called for defeating ISIS by killing members of their families (video below).
Trump advocated killing the civilians during an interview with the Fox News program "Fox & Friends."
Trump complained about the U.S. assisting Syrian rebels who are fighting the oppressive Syrian government of President Bashar Assad, which is fighting ISIS, but has been accused of numerous war crimes, noted CNN in October.
“I like to do one thing at a time,” Trump stated. “I would knock the hell out of ISIS. I would hit them, Brian, so hard, like they’ve never been hit before."
“What about civilian casualties?” co-host Brian Kilmeade asked the reality TV star. "What about the fact that we are targeting them and people are very concerned about collateral damage?"
The real estate billionaire replied:
"I would do my best, absolute best, I mean, one of the problems that we have and one of the reasons we’re so ineffective is, they’re using them as shields, it's a horrible thing, they’re using them as shields, but we're fighting a very politically correct war.
"And the other thing with the terrorists, you have to take out their families. When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.
"They care about their lives, don’t kid yourselves. They say they don’t care about their lives, you have to take out their families."
On the same morning, Trump called into conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Internet radio show.
According to Jones' Infowars.com, Trump called Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton "corrupt," said she should not be allowed to run for president, asserted that she did a horrible job as secretary of state and added that if Clinton gets out of her so-called email scandal it would be her "greatest legacy."
