Trump Role Model: Saddam Hussein

Trump Role Model: Saddam Hussein

Donald Trump, Tuesday night in Raleigh, North Carolina:

“Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right? … But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn’t read ’em the rights, they didn’t talk. They were a terrorist, it was over.”

— “Trump: Saddam killed terrorists ‘so good,'” Associated Press

These claims are nonfactual. Saddam killed no terrorists; he killed political opponents and ethnic minorities.

Mr. Trump previously claimed the world would be “100 percent better” if dictators like Saddam and Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi were still in power. Like them, Donald Trump wants to torture people, execute them without trial, and then kill their innocent relatives.
