Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will unveil his plan to defeat ISIS during a speech from Youngstown, Ohio today.
Trump’s event will be held at Youngstown State University beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
During his speech, Trump is expected to propose that the United States work with any country that opposes ISIS regardless of ideological differences, declaring anyone that wants to defeat the terrorist organization to be an ally, according to the Chicago Tribute.
Trump will also expand upon his proposed Muslim ban, saying in his speech that as president he will order a suspension of visas to countries where adequate screenings can not be performed. He will also declare that the United States is at war with radical Islam.
Finally, Trump will blame the rise of ISIS on President Barack Obama and on his opponent, Hillary Clinton, whose policies Trump argues allowed the terrorist group to grow. Last week, Trump repeatedly said that Obama and Clinton are the co-founders of ISIS before eventually explaining that he was being sarcastic but “not that sarcastic.”
This will be one of Trump’s speeches that is delivered from a teleprompter, as opposed to the improvisational nature of his rallies. Trump has repeatedly won praise from his Republican colleagues for his scripted remarks, only to earn their scorn shortly after for comments made off the cuff at rallies, such as when he said “second amendment people” could do something about Hillary Clinton appointing Supreme Court judges.
This speech also comes after it was revealed in The New York Times that Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, was allegedly paid $12.7 million under the table for consulting work he did for Ukraine’s pro-Russia government. The Trump campaign has said the story is false.
