As you might remember that back in the day Hussein was considered one of the leading enemies of the United States. He routinely tortured and murdered thousands of his own people and infamously called for the mass murder of 5,000 kurdish men, women and children with chemical weapons solely to remove them from their villages in northern Iraq.
Though the laundry list of attrocities is long and horrific Donald Trump gave some love to the now deceased tyrant...
"Saddam Hussein was a bad guy. Right? He was a bad guy, really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights -- they didn't talk, they were a terrorist, it was over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism. You want to be a terrorist, you go to Iraq. It's like Harvard. Okay? So sad."

What can ya say, Trump's just a big fan of the Butcher of Bagdad.
As we all know this is not the first time Trump a has praised maniacal dictatorships. He has also complemented Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, China's handling of Tiananmen Square and claimed that the world would be "100 percent" better if dictators like Hussein and Moammar Gaddafi had remained in power.
