Trump Thinks Oregon Militia Should Quit: We Need ‘Law And Order’

January 6, 2016 7:51 a.m.

Donald Trump on Tuesday expressed disapproval of the militia that took over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon over the weekend.

In an interview with The Hill, the real estate mogul agreed with his fellow Republican presidential candidates who have called for the group of armed men to stand down.

“You have to maintain law and order, no matter what,” Trump told The Hill.

Numerous presidential candidates have criticized the militia and called on them to leave the Oregon refuge, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
