Trump: ‘You gotta shoot’ barrel-rolling Russian planes ‘at some point’
Restraint is not Donald Trump’s forte, and it would likely get us into a war.
Donald Trump said on Monday that, “at a certain point,” the United States should shoot at Russian planes that barrel roll over U.S. Air Force planes.
Commenting on a Russian SU-27 that conducted a barrel roll over a U.S. aircraft on Friday, the second such maneuver a Russian plane has conducted in the past month, Trump told Indiana radio host Charly Butcher that Obama should first call Putin to object.
“Normally, an Obama, let’s say a president, because you want to make at least a call or two, but normally Obama would call up Putin and say, ‘Listen, do us a favor, don’t do that, get that maniac, just stop it.’ But we don’t have that kind of a president. He’s gonna be out playing golf or something,” Trump said.
“But I don’t know, at a certain point, you can’t take it,” the businessman continued. “I mean, at a certain point, you have to do something that, you just can’t take that.
