I’d like him to feel a swift kick in the ass for saying such idiotic things.
As the world superpowers take on ISIS, Donald Trump thinks he has a super power that qualifies him to be President — sniffing out terrorism.
The Republican frontrunner boasted of his innate “instinct” for predicting terrorist threats, he told a packed crowd at Tennessee’s Knoxville Convention Center Monday night.
“In my book I predicted terrorism because I can feel it,” said Trump, who has made his billions developing casinos and hotels. “I can feel it like I feel a good location.”
The book he referred to is “The America We Deserve,” where he outlined his public policy views in 2000. The political manifesto has proven to be the tip of the iceberg for his future presidential campaign.
Trump not only warned of Osama Bin Laden a year before the Sept. 11 attacks, describing him as a “shadowy figure,” but he also predicted weapons of mass destruction would be used against an American city and advised the U.S. government to infiltrate terrorist groups.
“I really believe I have an instinct for this kind of thing,” Trump added.
His remarks comes four days after a string of suicide bombings and rolling gunfire killed 129 people and wounded hundreds more in Paris, sparking a manhunt in France and Belgium for an escaped terrorist and its suspected mastermind.
Perhaps he should alert the authorities whenever he has these feelings.
