(Daily Mail UK) Ben Carson brought his trademark soft-spoken resolve to Orlando, Florida on Friday, telling reporters after a speech at a Republican Party event that if he were president he would “destroy” the “global jihadist movement” behind the still-developing mass killings in Paris.
“There are those out there who have a thirst for innocent blood, in an attempt to spread their philosophy and their will across this globe,” Carson said during a brief press conference.
“And we must redouble our efforts and our resolve to resist them, not only to contain them but to eliminate that kind of hatred in the world.”
Asked how he would handle the threat of violent Islamists if he were elected president, Carson became even more soft-spoken than normal.
“I think America’s involvement should be trying to eliminate them completely,” he said. “Destroy them!”
