Donald Trump, who is running for president of the US, said that ground troops should be sent to the Middle East in order to seize Iraq’s oil fields and stop ISIS from profiting.
It seems that ISIS is making a profit by selling stolen oil on the international black market. About 10% of country’s oil rigs are under the control of ISIS.
Trump’s idea is to take away this source of profit from ISIS in order to give that money to the families of soldiers who were killed or wounded while fighting for the US during the invasion of Iraq.
According to polls, Trump is currently leading by 25%.
