Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has taken some rather unorthodox views on foreign policy that many Americans absolutely love. Among them, Trump has vowed to obliterate the Islamic State terror group and restore America’s military to greatness.
The Hill reported that in one of Trump’s boldest and most shocking foreign policy statements to date, he stated that he could actually consider using nuclear weapons against the Islamic State terror group if they attacked America.
“Somebody hits us within ISIS, you wouldn’t fight back with a nuke?” said Trump during an interview with MSNBC.
It has been popular talk in America to joke about nuking the Islamic State group (or the entire Middle East for that matter), but Trump is the first candidate to come forward and actually make it a serious policy discussion.

“I would never say that. I would never take any of my cards off the table,” said Trump, when asked if he would completely rule out using nuclear weapons.
