Donald Trump, “We better get very, very tough, folks”
Donald Trump, at his rally in Colorado late Saturday that a “bomb went off” in New York City
“I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on,” Donald Trump said at the JetCenter in Colorado Springs.
At that time, no one knew what had caused the explosion.
“But boy, we are living in a time,” Trump added. “We better get very tough, folks. We better get very, very tough.”
“We’ll find out,” he said. “It’s a terrible thing that’s going on in our world, in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant.
He then hammered Hillary Clinton on National Security and bashed Defense Secretary Robert Gates as a “Clown” after his scathing assessment that he was “beyond repair” on global issues.
“We had a Clown today, Robert Gates,” Donald Trump told an outdoor rally at the JetCenters in Colorado Springs. “He’s a nasty guy, probably has a problem, but I don’t know.
“I’m so better at what he does. Look at what we have,” he added, referring to various Hot Spots around the world.
“We have people like Robert Gates, who do not have a clue, and then they leave office and criticize. “I don’t like critics,” he said.
Robert Gates served 8 US presidents over 50 years, and he said in an op-ed Friday in the WS-J that both candidates “have a credibility problem in foreign affairs” and that he thinks that Donald Trump is “unqualified and unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.”
Donald Trump bashed Clinton on a broad range of global issues, ranging from the ISIS to China to Iran, as well as on other policies she has supported, including illegal immigration, NAFTA and the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement.
“Her policies have produced suffering everywhere,” he said.
“We are going to defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism,” Donald Trump added. “We’re going to rebuild our rapidly depleted military, the greatest people on Earth.
“We are going to remember those 3 very famous words: ‘Peace Through Strength,’” invoking Ronald Reagan’s Credo.
“That’s what we’re going to have — and, hopefully, we won’t have to use our strength, but we need it now more than ever before.”
Donald Trump pledged to improve Americans’ living standards by easing restrictions on the nation’s energy reserves.
“There’s $50-T of untapped energy reserves in our country, and we are going to unlock that vast potential,” he said. “This one action will raise the quality of life for tens of millions of Americans.
“We’ll be a rich country again.”
