Trump’s Terrorist Friends

Nafeez Ahmed writes for Middle East Eye:

President-elect Donald Trump has gone out of his way to portray himself as a hard man in the fight against terror.

He’d “quickly and decisively bomb the hell” out of the Islamic State (IS), he has claimed, and he’d even deploy US troops into Iraq – as many as 20,000-30,000, to “knock them out fast”.

He has threatened to ban oil imports from Saudi Arabia and other Arab allies unless they provide troops to fight IS.

“Who blew up the World Trade Center? It wasn’t the Iraqis, it was Saudi – take a look at Saudi Arabia, open the documents,” he told Fox News.

But Trump’s rhetoric is much like his orange spray tan: scary, unforgettable… and all too fake.
