(THE HILL) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says America will be glad if he’s the president next time the nation is attacked.

“If we are attacked, somebody attacks us, wouldn’t you rather have Trump as president if we’re attacked?” he said at a rally in Milford, N.H. “We’ll beat the shit out of them.”

He added that America needs to stop “playing games.”

“We’ve become the policemen to the entire world,” he said. “We take care of the world. They pay us peanuts.”
