TRUMP: “And somebody wrote in a very, very powerful article today, they didn’t help us in the Second World War, they didn’t help us with Normandy as an example, they mentioned names of different battles. But they’re there to help us with their land and that’s a different thing.

They make a lot of money when they fight.”
