After losing to Republican rival Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at the Iowa caucuses on Monday, billionaire and TV personality Donald Trump is back in business and continuing his campaign in New Hampshire.
At a campaign rally in Milford, N.H., Trump, 69, pointed out that if terrorists attack the United States once more, Americans would surely be glad if he were their president.

“We’ll beat the s**t out of them,” Trump told his supporters.
Trump stated that America should “quit playing games” and stop becoming the “policemen to the entire world.”
The New York-raised candidate also said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has already praised him and called him a “genius,” adding that Donald Trump is the real leader of the United States.
In addition, the billionaire also said that if he were president, he would cooperate with other superpowers, particularly Russia, in destroying the terrorist group ISIS.
So, instead of just the United States spending billions of dollars on weapons against terrorism, the country should unite with other nations that can also attack ISIS.
“We can use them to knock out ISIS with us so that maybe we don’t always have to pay for it,” Trump said.
The Republican presidential candidate said that Russia should also drop bombs that cost $1 million each, and other weapons that cost billions of dollars.
“Let them beat the s**t out of ISIS also,” he said.
This is not the first time Donald Trump has used his colorful words to express his desire to destroy the terrorist group.
During a rally at the Decker Auditorium in Fort Dodge in Iowa back in November, Donald Trump also mentioned that he wants to “bomb the s**t out of ’em.”
Donald delivered an emphatic speech about ISIS in Iowa
Trump said in his speech that he would bomb the oil camps and fields in Iraq and Syria, where the terrorist group mostly gets their funds for acts of terrorism.
Sources said that the terrorist group currently holds a number of oil fields in Iraq and Syria, particularly the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, whose oil fields reportedly produce 34,000 to 40,000 barrels of oil each day.
After blowing up the oil fields and depleting other sources of income for ISIS, it would be easier to defeat them. Once they are defeated, Trump would then send companies such as Exxon to fix the damages to oil fields.
When told by CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the Iraqis probably would not agree with what Donald Trump is proposing, the candidate then said that “there is no Iraq.”
He further explained that there is no Iraq because their leaders are corrupt and they have divided themselves into various factions.
Trump said that what matters is that ISIS loses control of those oil fields, and that American troops are able to guard those areas once they have been conquered.

Throughout his campaign since 2015, Trump has repeatedly and vocally expressed his hatred towards the terrorist group. He claims that ISIS was created by the United States’ current leaders, two of which include Pres. Barack Obama and former Secretary of State and Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump said during a campaign earlier this year in Mississippi that he has called for the Obama administration to take control over the oil in Syria and Iraq. However, Obama and other people just kept on saying that the United States cannot do that because those countries are sovereign countries.
“They’ve created ISIS. Hillary Clinton created Isis with Obama,” Donald Trump said in the campaign.

With Trump’s campaign moving towards a much more aggressive stance against ISIS, it remains to be seen if this can help him even up the score with Cruz in the upcoming New Hampshire primaries.
