Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump named ISIS "our number one threat" in an interview with Fox & Friends Wednesday and said that, when dealing with terrorists, "you have to take out their families."

"They care about their lives, don't kid yourself. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families," he said.

The real estate mogul went on to say that he "would knock the hell out of ISIS," and criticized US President Barack Obama for not waging a proper war against terrorism.

"We have a president that doesn't know what he is doing, and all he cares about is climate change," Trump declared.

Last month, following the Paris attacks, the presidential hopeful made headlines after declaring his intentions of implementing a database to keep track of Muslims in the US.

Trump, speaking to an NBC News reporter, was asked if there should be a database to monitor Muslims in the US.

“I would certainly implement that, absolutely,” he said in on-camera comments. Asked how that differed from efforts last century to track Jews in Nazi Germany, he said: “You tell me.”
