OMG. I used the phrase "trigger-happy" to characterize HRC just yesterday, before Trump did. It's I in the air. She set herself up for it.
“On foreign policy, Hillary is trigger happy,” Trump told the crowd. “She is, she’s trigger happy. She’s got a bad temperament,” he said. “Her decisions in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya have cost trillions of dollars, thousands of lives and have totally unleashed ISIS.”
And he expressed a rarely heard appreciation for the “other side to this story,” noting: “Thousands of lives yes, for us, but probably millions of lives in all fairness, folks” for the people of the Middle East.
Trump implied that casualties inflicted by the U.S. military were far higher than reported. “They bomb a city” and “it’s obliterated, obliterated,” he said. “They’ll say nobody was killed. I’ll bet you thousands and thousands of people were killed every time you see that television set.”
“If we would’ve done nothing,” Trump argued, “we would’ve been in much better shape.”
Ouch. This is bad news for Hillary but good news for the world.Note also that Trump shows some compassion (emotion) for the collaterally damaged. Persuasion that is emotionally based is more effective that that which is rationally based. Here Trump is using both fear ("trigger happy") and compassion (love, feel the others' pain). A winning combination.
