Donald Trump has side-stepped most questions regarding his plans on how to defeat the Islamic State (Isis) if he makes it to the Oval Office claiming he would prefer to be "unpredictable" in his attack. However, on 6 September, the Republican presidential candidate shared a bit about his strategy while in North Carolina.

"We are going to convey my top generals and give them a simple instruction," Trump told the crowd in Greenville. "They will have 30 days to submit to the oval office. A plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS. We have no choice."

And now the cyber is so big, and you know you look at what they're doing with the internet," Trump said, according to Well, that's it," said Trump, according to Sopan Deb of CBS News.

"But cyber has been very, very important and it's becoming more and more important as you look and a lot of it does have to do with ideology and psychology and a lot of other things," he added.

Tapping into his thoughts on immigration, the New York real estate tycoon continued, "I used to watch the migration, and I'd see people with cell phones. I'd say, "Where did they get cell phones?" And some of those people had very horrible things on their cell phones including the Isis flag."
