It is really difficult to understand how a libertarian could support Donald Trump, on the policy issues that he is clear on. trade, the building of government infrastructure, pro-medicare, etc., he is terrible.
On issues where he vacillates from interview to interview, he can be horrific.
This morning on the Bloomberg show, With All Due Respect, he said he would not rule out using tactical nuclear weapons against ISIS.
“I'm never going to rule anything out—I wouldn't want to say. Even if I wasn't, I wouldn't want to tell you that because at a minimum, I want them to think maybe we would use them,” he said.
There are plenty of ways he can walk this comment back if he chooses, but what is so difficult about saying in the first place that you won't use nuclear weapons against ISIS?
I remind the reader that the sum total of ISIS attacks in the US has been one: a wacko husband and wife team in San Bernardino.
Does Trump understand the collateral damage a nuclear attack would cause? Does he understand the blowback and the number of others he would radicalize? And that he may have even do so by making these insane comments?
