Trump: ‘A Guy Like You Or Me’ Could Have Stopped ISIS With A Gun
Donald Trump has once again given a simplistic answer that will likely thrill the masses.
“So they were just shooting people: ‘Next! Next!’” the former reality TV star toldBoston radio host Jeff Kuhner. “Just people were totally defenseless. If you had a guy like you or me, or some other guys in that room that had guns, it wouldn’t have been that way, Jeff. You know. It wouldn’t have been that way.”
Trump made the comments after saying that, because of French gun laws, “nobody had a gun” to shoot the attackers, adding that “the only ones that had the guns are the bad guys.”
Earlier in his answer, he objected to the characterization of Abdelhamid Abaaoud, who reportedly plotted the attacks and was reported dead on Wednesday, as a “mastermind.” Trump said that he should be referred to instead as a “nutjob.” He further called Abaaoud a “wacky guy,” who “looks like ten cents.”
