It doesn’t take a genius to understand that President Donald Trump is a way better than former President Barack Obama.
Obama was so weak on terrorism that he left our country in one of the worst positions its ever been in.
Trump is working hard to fix that and he shocked Congress on Tuesday when he sent them a letter telling them that he currently had 20,000 troops deployed around the world fighting terrorists.
“If necessary, in response to terrorist threats, I will direct additional measures to protect United States citizens and interests,” Trump wrote.
“It is not possible to know at this time the precise scope or the duration of the deployments of U.S. Armed Forces necessary to counter terrorist threats to the United States,” he added.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The New York Times noted that in early May, Trump advisers had called for “several thousand” more troops to be sent to Afghanistan to help combat the rising threats, though Trump had yet to actually sign off on those plans.
In a separate article published on June 3, The New York Times reported that the plan to deploy more troops had run into intense resistance from Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon and his supporters, though that hadn’t stopped those who support the plan from continuing to advocate for it.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster were the two leading advocates of deploying more troops, but it was unclear if they could convince Trump.
Trump has earned my vote. The man is dedicated to running this country as efficiently as possible and he doesn’t back down to cowardly terrorists like Obama did.
What do you think about Trump’s decision to deploy nearly 20,000 troops to fight terrorism?
