Politics – Trump evokes Cold War to boost campaign


On Monday, Donald Trump drew an analogy between the dangers once posed by the Soviet Union and the more recent dangers of Islamic Terrorism. “In winning the Cold War, President Ronald Reagan repeatedly touted the superiority of freedom over communism and called the USSR the Evil Empire,” Trump said in a major speech in Ohio. “Just as we won the Cold War in part by exposing the evils of communism and the virtues of free markets, so too must we take on the ideology of radical Islam.” He went on to use the U.S. approach to the Soviet Union in the 1950s as a way to approach battling terrorism, such as using “ideological tests” for would-be immigrants. “In addition to scraping out all members of the sympathizers of terrorist groups, we must also screen out any hostile attitude towards our country or its principles, or who believed Sharia law should supplant American law,” he said.
