Can't do it.  Trump and his base shart on Obama for bringing troops home from iraq and afghanistan and used all the fun words.  But Obama was actually right in that those conflict areas had largely settled down.  Trump declared isis dead like 7 months after taking office and is now pulling out of a torn apart syria which turkey will now pour in to to murder kurds in land not their own, israel to bomb whoever as long as they call them iranians and for isis to take further root in the rebels and radicals pissed off after years of fighting.

 

No credit for doing the stupidest possible thing and continuing to walk down the bomb them to peace and forget to clean up path the us has taken in the middle east for 2 decades

Iraq was settled down? Are you serious? You can't be.

 

I didn't slam Obama for bringing troops home. No foreign troops should be in the middle east. Btw a US presence in Syria didn't stop Turkey or Israel but a Russian presence will if it interferes with Russia's interests.

Trump's knee jerk decision making has another casualty:

 

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/top-us-envoy-in-isis-fight-resigns/ar-BBRiLno?li=AAggNb9

Quote

Brett McGurk, special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, had been planning to exit his post in February 2019. But sources tell CBS News that he informed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that he will accelerate his departure due to a strong disagreement with President Trump's snap decision to withdraw 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria, effectively abandoning U.S. allies in the region.

McGurk submitted his resignation on Friday, just one day after Defense Secretary James Mattis quit his post citing fundamental disagreements with the commander-in-chief -- including one over the importance of honoring U.S. alliances.

The special envoy was publicly left in the lurch by the president's sudden declaration on Wednesday that he was pulling U.S. forces out of Syria, against the advice of his top national security advisers and without consulting U.S. allies.

s leader of the counter ISIS mission, McGurk had been in the region to meet with coalition partners including Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani last week when Mr. Trump made his sudden decision to pull U.S. support. According to Barzani's office, he had raised concern about the fate of Kurds in Syria including the Kurdish-led group of fighters known as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). They have been the ground troops in the fight against ISIS and receive help from U.S. advisers, weapons and air strikes.

It is now unclear what will happen to those fighters after the U.S. troops withdraw, and whether the U.S. will continue to carry out air strikes in support of them.

This is interesting in that it gives insight into how Trump views the people he appoints to positions of power:

 

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/21/politics/trump-lashed-out-at-whitaker-after-explosive-cohen-revelations/index.html

 

Quote

 

President Donald Trump has at least twice in the past few weeks vented to his acting attorney general, angered by federal prosecutors who referenced the President's actions in crimes his former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Trump was frustrated, the sources said, that prosecutors Matt Whitaker oversees filed charges that made Trump look bad. None of the sources suggested that the President directed Whitaker to stop the investigation, but rather lashed out at what he felt was an unfair situation.

The first known instance took place when Trump made his displeasure clear to acting attorney general Matt Whitaker after Cohen pleaded guilty November 29 to lying to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow. Whitaker had only been on the job a few weeks following Trump's firing of Jeff Sessions.

Over a week later, Trump again voiced his anger at Whitaker after prosecutors in Manhattan officially implicated the President in a hush-money scheme to buy the silence of women around the 2016 campaign -- something Trump fiercely maintains isn't an illegal campaign contribution. Pointing to articles he said supported his position, Trump pressed Whitaker on why more wasn't being done to control prosecutors in New York who brought the charges in the first place, suggesting they were going rogue.

The previously unreported discussions between Trump and Whitaker described by multiple sources familiar with the matter underscore the extent to which the President firmly believes the attorney general of the United States should serve as his personal protector. The episodes also offer a glimpse into the unsettling dynamic of a sitting president talking to his attorney general about investigations he's potentially implicated in.

 

I think it's clear that Trump feels that people he "does a favor for" by appointing them to high profile jobs, owe him allegiance and in the case of someone like Whittaker, who oversees matters pertaining to investigations, should be protecting him. (as the article states)

 

There really is no doubt in my mind that Trump is a wannabe dictator and is actually jealous of people like Putin, Kim, Erdogen and Xi....

Maybe the orange one is finally beginning to understand just why being Pres. is not an easy job. Moron probably thought he could just tell people to do anything he wants.

One of the panel members on AC 360 spelled it out perfectly last night:

 

Trump loves the trappings of power. He loves hearing the band play Hail to the Chief when he enters a room....riding on Air Force One...attending State Dinners in his honor....the cheering of the crowds at one of his rallies....listening to his cabinet members trying to outdo each other in saying what a "privilege" it is to work under him....playing golf with fellow world leaders, especially at one of his properties....seeing his face on magazine covers and his name on buildings...

 

....what he doesn't enjoy is the actual work of being President: Attending briefings...answering questions from media that isn't Faux, or InfoWars....showing compassion for people and areas devastated by natural disasters....

There is no doubt he is loving the attention. I'm coming to the understanding the guy had absolutely no clue what job entails and thought it would be a simple gig for a guy like himself;  unlike all the other presidents who must have been morons or something?

Only the best criminals.

 

Pales in comparison to Faux news' made up Obama crisis': birth certificate, reverend wright, teleprompter, golfing, lobster dinner, fist bump, too many exec orders, saluting with a coffee cup...

Miss the days when the president's being blasted for saluting with a coffee cup because they can't find anything better.

What's hilarious is that Trump keeps ranting and raving about political motivated prosecutions when all the names that are overseeing the investigation happen to be Republican. Trumpists would say they are all RINOs though, because the "rule of law" only matters to them when the criminals happen to be a shade darker in complexion.

It took Trump 3 days to figure out that Mattis resigning was in protest to his policies, so now he's getting Mattis to leave early. 3 days of Fox News having to explain it to him. God thats just scary.
