Military WON’T Refuse MY Orders To Commit WAR CRIMES! – Trump At GOP Debate

This clip slipped through the cracks I think, and it should get more attention because it’s really rather troubling.

Watch below:

When asked about the foreign policy experts who signed a letter castigating Trump for advocating for what amounts to international war crimes.

“They won’t refuse. They’re not gonna refuse me. BELIEVE ME.”

Then he rambles on about “Medieval Times” and Muslims chopping off heads. Which is a great way to not answer the question.

So how exactly would he force military members to commit war crimes?

“If I say do it, they’re gonna do it.”

This is the kind of ridiculous and dangerous rhetoric that appeals to the gut but should put the mind in doubt about his sanity. This is literally putting military members in jeopardy of significant legal peril. And they already learned what happens when one idiot, Obama, is willing to prosecute them for orders given by  a president, George W. Bush, who believed it was legal to do so. Do you really think they’re gonna follow through on orders that President Drumpf KNOWS are illegal?

    I spent 20 years boy and man, there is no way that I would have followed an order to murder innocent women and children because of who their husbands or fathers are.

  • And no one should be ordered to do that, knowingly and intentionally.

    On another note: His health care plan sounds pretty good –

    Trump has just released his health care reform proposal. He is the only candidate that has put forward a plan that will force down the cost of medical care by as much as 80%, rendering Obamacare unnecessary along with Medicare.

    Not sure he is advocating killing women and children.

    You get the order in writing. After it’s safely tucked away, you respectfully decline to obey an unlawful order, also in writing.

  • 20thCenturyVole

    Oh, btw, issuing such an order is a “high crime” for impeachment purposes.

    I think Harry Truman and Franklin Roosevelt should have been imprisoned for war crimes too. DESPICABLE. All those bomber pilots should have been court marshaled too.

  • cjkcjk

    I heartily agree, Truman and Roosevelt should have been executed for all those innocent bombing victims.

  • cjkcjk

    I think every crew member of the Enola Gay should have been executed for not disobeying that unlawful order, right?
