“What Am I Going To Do?” Trump Dismisses Appearance In Terror Group’s Video

“What Am I Going To Do?” Trump Dismisses Appearance In Terror Group’s Video

Last week, it was revealed that an Al-Qaeda affiliate group, Al-Shabaab, had released a 51-minute recruitment video that featured Republican Presidential candidate and sweaty ball of belly button lint Donald Trump. Footage of Trump calling on banning Muslims from America is contrasted with a deceased member of Al Qaeda saying the “West will eventually turn against its Muslim citizens.” The tape’s release followed Trump demanding an apology for Hillary Clinton saying the celebrity billionaire is ISIS’s best recruiter.

During an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, host John Dickerson asked The Donald about the terror organization using his words and actions to help bring in new followers. In typical Trump fashion, not only did the Trumpster shrug off his starring role in the video, he thought it showed that he was “really right” on his plans to stop terrorism.

After patting himself on the back over his grasp of foreign policy and his personal bravery, Trump then responded to Dickerson asking him if he was concerned about being used as a terrorist recruitment tool.

“They use other people, too. What am I going to do? I have to say what I have to say. And you [know] what I have to say? There’s a problem. We have to find out what is a problem. And we have to solve that problem.”

Those are the words of a true statesman, folks. Hey, they showed other people in that video, not just me. And we have to find out the problem and stuff. Also, I gotta say what I gotta say, cuz it needs to be said, you know what I’m saying sayin’.
