From Trump’s lips to ISIS’ — and the voters’ — ears

Here we go again — another terrorist attack, another macho comment from would-be president Donald Trump (“Trump, Clinton far apart in their responses,” Page A1, March 23).

Many people have already pointed out that Trump’s behavior is, at least potentially, a powerful recruiting tool for the Islamic State. But let’s not overlook the fact that Trump is also seizing upon ISIS as a recruiting tool for himself. It’s a perfect symbiotic relationship.

If this is the “art of the deal,” deal me out.
