“I don’t know what it is, we don’t band together maybe, other religions frankly they’re banding together and they’re using it.

Trump also commented on the latest prisoner swap deal with Iran describing the affair as a bad deal.
“We’re getting four back, they’re getting seven, they’re getting fourteen off of the Interpol watch list these are real bad customers. They’re getting all sorts of advantages including free market oil they’re getting unbelievable advantages. They’re going to be an immensely wealthy country and of wealthy terror country and they’re getting one hundred and fifty billion dollars,” Trump said.
