Donald Trumps Advocates Sending Ground Troops to Fight the Islamic State

•, Kurt Nimmo

Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told Chuck Todd and Meet the Press on Sunday the United States should send ground troops to the Middle East to take oil revenue away from the Islamic State.

Trump said Iraq's oil fields should be seized to prevent ISIS from profiting.

It is estimated ISIS controls around 10% of the country's oil rigs and sells the stolen oil at lower than market prices on an international black market.

Trump said the Iraqis should be given "something" from their oil fields and added "we should definitely take back money for our soldiers" wounded in the invasion of Iraq.
