World would be better place if Saddam, Gaddafi are still in power – Trump

The world would be a better place if dictators such as Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were still in power top Republican US presidential hopeful Donald Trump said in comments aired Sunday.

The billionaire real estate tycoon also told CNN’s “State of the Union” talk show that the Middle East “blew up” around US President Barack Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, his biggest Democratic rival in the race for the White House. “100 percent,” Trump said when asked
if the world would be better off with
Saddam and Muammar Gaddafi still at
the helm in Iraq and Libya.

Both strongmen committed atrocities against their own people and are now dead. Saddam, the former Iraqi president, was toppled in the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and was executed in 2006.

Muammar Gaddafi — who ruled Libya
