Now Trump Wants to Bomb Families of Alleged ISIS Members

President Trump would not let a few, or even masses of civilian casualties get in the way of fighting the Islamic State. The candidate for president told his friends at "Fox and Friends" Wednesday that he "likes to do one thing at a time," and in this case that one thing would be "knocking the hell" out of ISIS, and yeah, "their families."


"I would hit them very hard."

“What about civilian casualties?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.

“I would do my best," Trump claimed, before ratcheting up the rhetoric. "One of the problems that we have and one of the reasons we’re so ineffective, they’re using them as shields,” Trump said. “But we're fighting a very politically correct war. With the terrorists, you have to take out their families."

For added emphasis, Trump talked about killing the families of ISIS a few more times.

“They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself,"  he said. "But they say they don’t care about them. You have to take out their families.”
