    Donald Trump has been the only candidate (maybe ever but certainly for a long time to show any signs of changing this. Yes, of course he lies and will say anything, so I look forward to the usual disgruntled people to point this out, but could it happen?
    Now with about 5 months into El Cheato's time in office, your question is being answered.

    Stalemate...would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. The Taliban has been slowly gaining ground for the last 2 years, and that is supposed to be a 'stalemate'. But hey, the 2009 surge of 30,000 soldiers did so much to change the equation, that General Hammer thinks he sees more nails, so 4,000 soldiers will definitely achieve something different...

    The Pentagon will send nearly 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan in an effort to turn around a war that commanders have described as a stalemate,
    El Cheato has blown the doors off any attempt at restraining the Saudi scorched earth campaign in Yemen, and has joined in blowing up the war torn nation. And the US has increased the pace of operations in Somalia.

    Locals in Yemen have alleged that, in recent months, drone strikes carried out by the Trump administration killed civilians on numerous occasions. One strike reported last month in Yemen’s Shabwah Province allegedly targeted a car full of men with no existing links to terrorist groups, as well as several innocent bystanders. Despite such incidents, Trump has promised measures that would further loosen targeting standards for drone operators, likely putting civilians in even greater danger.

    Trump mostly comes across as a petulant child striking out in anger in random directions. I can't identify any kind of policy here?

    Furthermore, the American people at large did not support this man. There is so many layers of stupid to Wil's post.

    Sure, shooting them in the back is illegal in those circumstances, but e cop getting convicted is not doing any good to the dead guy.

    Well, one thing I did was argue with fools last year who claimed they were sucking on a Popsicle stick that Trump gave them, as I pointed out that it really looked much more like Don the Con's dick.

    Trump is basically ignoring foreign policy. If he was to pay attention, hard to say which way he'd go. So instead the Pentagon is acting on auto-pilot and marching us towards WW3.

    I really cannot for the life of me understand why some people thought that Trump, of all people, would be a less violent President than others we've had in the past. A lady I knew that has two children in the armed forces voted for him for that reason. I wonder if she regrets her decision now.

    Actually, Trump and Jesus are similar in some ways. One of them is that people imbue them with whatever characteristics and attributes they want or need them to have. Evangelicals made him Christian. The right made him conservative, etc.

    Seriously, if you thought that Trump would keep his word on anything he said during his campaign, you. are. gullible. The stream of broken consciousness that issues forth from this man should have been all the doubt you ever needed. His record should have been another. His constant lies for fucking sure. His obvious lack of understanding of anything that had to do with government or even our democracy yet others.
