Rudy Giuliani: 'We Need a President to Destroy ISIS'

Fox News' "On the Record"

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Friday that "we need a president to destroy ISIS" — and that person would be presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"The reality is four or five years ago, there was an ISIS but it wasn't the organization it was today," the former two-term Republican told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News. "When [President Barack Obama] said it was the J-V team, he was really talking about the ISIS of two or three years ago and the ISIS that he kind of inherited.

"He is the one that made it into a varsity Islamic terrorist organization by not intervening when he should have.

"The only thing you can do to stop Islamic extremist terrorism is you have to be on offense," he said.

Giuliani likened Sunday's mass killing of 49 people and the wounding of 53 others by an American-born Florida man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State to when the terrorist group slaughters Christians and beheads others.

"It's Islamic extremist terrorism. That is the philosophy behind the attack that went on in Orlando.

"In this particular case, it was focused against a group of people that are considered enemies of fundamentalists extremist Muslims: gay and lesbian people," he said. "We have seen them throw homosexual men off buildings.

"This is very similar to when they take a group of Christians and chop their heads off. If you are a Christian, you are an infidel. If you are a gay and lesbian, you are an infidel.

"If you are a Jew, you are an infidel. If you are not, you are a fundamentalist Muslim."

The formula for destroying the Islamic State, Giuliani said, included air strikes, group troops, a no-fly zone in Syrian — and removing the country's president, Bashar Assad.

You also have to control the Internet. "It is time for corporations to find out some way to shut down that inspiration and recruitment," he said.

Trump, Giuliani said, would "of course" be more effective in eliminating ISIS than Clinton.

"She is the one who presided over the overthrow of [President Muammar] Gaddafi in Libya," he told Van Susteren. "Look what we have in Libya. She reset the relationship in Russia. Look how bad the relationship with Russia is since she reset the relationship.

"Hillary Clinton has had her chance to conduct the foreign policy of the United States — and she has been, I will say, kindly, a disaster.

"Every single thing she touched as secretary of state, whether it was her policies or Barack Obama's, they are the same and ended up worse."
