President Donald Trump went on a 12-day trip to Asia, departing on Friday. Before he left, he spoke with reporters, telling them that we will hit ISIS “10 times harder” than they hit us, after they happily claimed responsibility for the terror attack in New York City on Tuesday.
He said, “What we’re doing is every time we’re attacked from this point forward, we’re hitting them 10 times harder. … They claimed him as a soldier. Good luck. Every time they hit us, we know it’s ISIS, we hit them like you folks won’t believe.”
In an interview on “The Ingraham Angle” last night, Trump repeated his criticism of the U.S. justice system as it pertains to the handling of terrorism cases.
He lamented that terrorist Sayfullo Saipov could be “tied up forever in the court system.”
“You look at some of the cases that are going on forever and you have them dead to rights,” Trump continued, “No, the justice system has to go quicker. And it has to be, really, stronger and fairer.”
The president also commented Friday morning on the Russia investigations, repeating that there was “no collusion.” He told the media to “take a look at” the new book by Donna Brazile, in which the former interim DNC chair claimed that Hillary Clinton wielded her influence over the party to essentially rig the outcome against her opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
He said the Justice Department should look at the Democrats, including “Podesta and all that dishonesty.”
President Trump arrived at Pearl Harbor on Friday, and will travel through Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
