Trump: Rebuild America, Not Afghanistan

By    |   Monday, 31 January 2011 07:27 PM EST

Donald Trump tells Newsmax the United States should be spending taxpayers’ money rebuilding the country instead of wasting fortunes in other countries like Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We go to Afghanistan, we build a road. We build a highway. We build a school at the end of the highway. The school gets blown up, the road gets blown up, and we’re starting all over again,” he says in his exclusive Newsmax interview.

“Why aren’t we building roads in Alabama?

“I would like to rebuild the United States. China is rebuilding itself. We are rebuilding China. Then you come into Kennedy International Airport and it’s obsolete. It’s a Third World airport. We have to rebuild ourself.

“We would have no lack of projects. You do airports, you do road work, you do mass transit, you do a lot of things.

“We’ve spent $1.2 trillion – now that’s what they report — in Iraq and yet we can’t fix New Orleans. We can’t fix our own cities. It’s insane.”
