Last week was the first GOP presidential debate, and afterwards the public made it known that Donald Trump was the undisputed winner.
During the debate, however, Fox News made it clear that they have a strong anti-Trump agenda. Moderators Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace, and Brett Baier planned zingers for Trump before the debate, and even conspired to escort him from the stage should he “not behave.”
Over the weekend, Trump lashed out at both Megyn Kelly and Fox News, implying that he would never appear on the network again. Yesterday, however, Trump revealed that Fox head Roger Ailes had called him to personally apologize, and yesterday the business mogul appeared on Fox & Friends as scheduled.
Many expected Trump to use his appearance to slam Megyn Kelly, but he decided that the struggling anchorwoman had gotten enough free publicity off him. Instead, Trump talked to host Steve Doocy about his plans to take on Iran, saying we should “knock the hell out of them” and then “take the oil.”
“Iran is taking over Iraq 100%, just like I predicted years ago,” Trump said, according to Mediaite. “I say this, I didn’t want to go there in the first place. Now we take the oil.”
“We should have kept the oil,” Trump continued. “Now we go in, we knock the hell out of them, take the oil, we thereby take their wealth. They have so much money.”
“They have better internet connections than we do in the United States,” he concluded. “They’re training our kids through the internet. We have to knock out their wealth.”
