President Donald Trump Would Keep Gas Prices Low by Stealing Iraq's Oil
The very notion that Donald Trump is actually being perceived by some as a serious contender in the 2012 presidential race is surreal enough -- but when he starts elaborating on what his actual policies would look like, we venture into the realm of full-blown absurdity. For instance, in a recent interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos , Trump conveyed what a primary plank of his energy policy would be: Stealing Iraq's oil fields -- by force, mind you -- and siphoning the black gold straight back the US. Yes, Trump evidently believes that since the United States 'invested' some $1.5 trillion in the Iraq war, we are entitled to "the spoils" and may extract it from the sovereign nation.
