Piers Morgan: Listen to Trump

Piers Morgan lost his show on CNN, went back to Britain, and landed a TV gig as well as space in the Daily Mail. By chance when Brussels was bombed, Trump was a guest on "Good Morning Britain," which Morgan hosts, in an interview arranged weeks ago.

Following the interview, Morgan said it is time we took Trump seriously. Unlike everyone else, he has a plan.

From Piers Morgan:
Here is one man who definitely has a plan to deal with ISIS terrorism. Several plans in fact.
The problem is that people don’t like them. Well, a lot of people don’t anyway.
Trump, current front-runner for the Republican nomination, wants to hit ISIS ‘so hard they never recover’.
(As he told me: ‘You've got to take them out and you've got to take them out harshly and you've got to take them out fast.’)
He also wants a short-term ban on Muslims entering the U.S. until, as he puts it, ‘we figure out what the hell is going on?’
And he wants to torture suspects like Abdeslam with techniques like water-boarding to try and extract information about future attacks.
Oh, and he wants to build a giant wall to stop illegal immigrants pouring over the Mexican border into America. 
George Clooney hit out at Trump yesterday, as he endorsed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton for the presidency, saying: ‘If you listen to the loudest voices out there today, you'd think we're a country that hates Mexicans, hates Muslims, and thinks that committing war crimes is the best way to make America great again.’
I spoke to Trump for 40 minutes. He was, as you’d expect, bombastic, defiant and self-congratulatory. Why wouldn’t he be? He’s ripped up every political rulebook to take this presidential race by storm, a scenario that is hardly going to deflate the ego of New York’s most cock-sure billionaire tycoon.
But he also spoke in more detail about his plans to combat ISIS and I found myself nodding more than I expected.
Trump told me countries must tighten their borders in light of these terror attacks, especially to anyone related to an ISIS fighter in Syria.
Is he so wrong?
He told me he wants law-abiding Muslims to root out the extremists in their midst, expressing his bafflement and anger that someone like Abdeslam was able to hide for so long in the very part of Brussels he had previously lived.
Is he so wrong?
He told me America must make it far harder for illegal immigrants to enter the U.S. and thinks European countries should follow suit.
Is he so wrong?
He told me he believes there are now areas of many major European cities which have become poisonous breeding grounds for radicalized Islamic terror.
Is he so wrong? 
I didn’t feel I was talking to a lunatic, as many seem to view Trump.
I saw a guy, a non-politician unfettered by PC language restraints, who is genuinely furious at the devastation which ISIS is wreaking, and seriously concerned for the security of his fellow Americans and indeed, the citizens of Europe.
Morgan pointed out Trump does not need the job, but was deeply effected by 9/11. Which makes sense. Trump worked to help rebuild Manhattan which was a  slum in the 1970s. And then these rat bastards tried to destroy his town.

They call him Hitler -- yet cower to the real Nazis: the Muslim terrorists.

Trump ain't perfect. I get that. But he is right and I believe the true thinkers of our civilization will come around to his way of thinking.

Either that, or we will impose sharia law.


  1. It sounds like something heavy fell and hit Piers Morgan on the head. Who would have thought he would come out sympathetic to Trump? - Elric

    1. More correct to say he is sympathetic to Trump's positions on issues.

  2. Where is Trump wrong on this?
    I'm not a Trump fan,Cruz lost me
    when he BeBecked (beKlowned) himself.
    Trump understands this is a civilization
    level fight...

  3. "Either that, or we will impose sharia law."
    Correction: ...we will have sharia law imposed on us.

  4. It's 1939 all over again. ISIS is on the move and the President of the US is on vacation in Havana watching a baseball game as if all's fine in the world.

    1. I wish it was 1939. In 1939, the US War Industry was in full swing (the build up started in '38). Roosevelt pushed the limits of neutrality (as in ignored it as much as he could) but was held back by the isolationists until Pearl Harbor restacked the deck. Roosevelt knew a war was coming and knew which side was the good side. So it's a lot worse than '39.
