“my fu**ing generals are a bunch of pu**ies. They care more about their alliances than they do about trade deals.”

“I have built a nuclear, a weapon, I have built a weapon system that nobody’s ever had in this country before,” Trump reportedly told Woodward.

“We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about. We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before,” Trump said, referring to the Russian and Chinese presidents. “There’s nobody. What we have is incredible.”

Meanwhile military spending increased year on year for Trump.

President Donald Trump approved a colossal defense bill Friday that authorizes a topline of $738 billion for fiscal year 2020.
The $738 billion for fiscal 2020 represents a $21 billion increase over what Congress enacted for fiscal 2019.


The military industrial complex, generals, Tech monopolists, and Deep State Bureaucrats are being destroyed by Trump. The ghouls are writhing.


Yeah, deep state stuff for sure!

Trump has shrouded his war-making in even greater secrecy than Obama. The US military has not published a monthly Airpower Summary since February 2020, nor official troop deployment numbers for Afghanistan, Iraq, or Syria for nearly three years. But the United States has dropped at least twenty thousand bombs on Afghanistan since Trump came to power, and there is no evidence of a reduction in bombing under the peace agreement the administration signed with the Taliban in February. Some US troops have been withdrawn under that agreement, but the remaining 8,600 are still being replaced as their tours end, keeping US troop strength at about the same level as when Obama left office.

Trump made a great show of repositioning US troops in Syria in October 2019, leaving the United States’ Kurdish allies in Rojava to confront the Turkish invasion alone. But there are still at least 500 US troops in Syria, and Trump deployed 14,000 more US troops to the Middle East in 2019, including to a new base in Saudi Arabia.

Trump has vetoed every bill passed by Congress to disengage US forces from the Saudi war in Yemen and to halt the sales of US-made warplanes and bombs, which the Saudis use to systematically kill Yemeni civilians. He created a new conflict with Iran by pulling out of the nuclear deal, and in January 2020, he capriciously flirted with a full-scale war on Iran by ordering the assassination of Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi military commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in Iraq.

Trump’s bizarre decision to move the US Embassy in Israel to a plot of land that is only partly within Israel’s internationally recognized borders — and partly on Palestinian territory that Israel is illegally occupying — quite literally took US international relations into uncharted territory. Then Trump unveiled a so-called peace plan based on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ambition to annex the rest of Palestine into a “Greater Israel” with vastly expanded — but still unrecognized and illegal — international borders.

Trump has also backed a coup in Bolivia, staged several failed ones in Venezuela, and targeted even the United States’ closest allies with sanctions to try to prevent them from trading with US enemies. Trump’s brutal sanctions on Venezuela, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Cuba are not a peaceful alternative to war, but a form of economic warfare just as deadly as bombs, especially during a pandemic and its accompanying economic meltdown.

Once the large-scale US military occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan ended under Obama, the US military budget fell to $621 billion by 2015. But since then, military spending for procurement, research and development (R&D), and base construction has risen by 39 percent. This has been a huge windfall for the Big Five US weapons makers — Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and General Dynamics — whose arms sales revenues rose 30 percent between 2015 and 2019.

The 49 percent increase to more than $100 billion for R&D on new weapons systems in 2020, part of the enormous $718 billion Pentagon budget, is a down payment on trillions of dollars in future revenue for the merchants of death unless these programs are stopped.

The pretext for Trump’s huge investment in big-ticket, high-tech weapons, including a new Space Force with a $15 billion price tag for 2021, is the New Cold War with Russia and China that he officially unveiled in the 2018 National Defense Strategy.

And the above mentioned are the commander in chief's only true responsibility. We have no wars of consequence. We have fewer military deaths in history. And, once this fake pandemic panic is over, we'll have the best economy in history if Trump's reelected.

Steve .. we’re running a $3.5 TR deficit this year on top of the $3 TR from the past 3 years on top of the $4-5 TR the FED has added, it’s going to be tough to grow the economy with over a debt/gdp ratio higher than at ANY time since WWII.. There is zero reason to believe your claim has any credence ..

He lost all credibility with "fake pandemic". And, where will the money come from to dig our way out of debt? Higher taxes? When did the Republican Party become so fiscally irresponsible?

The answer to your question is during the early 2000’s.. In spite of a multi trillion dollar war or two , Dubya cut taxes in a big way , unprecedented during war.. The deficit blew out and maintaining political power became more important than fiscal prudence .. And now very few Republicans even pretend to care , it’s a sad situation knowing liberals have never been deficit hawks ... Now , no politician cares a bit .

There isn't a single honest person that works directly for fat Donny. Here's how folks like mrgybe try to spin the corona virus data to help him.

WASHINGTON — Political appointees at the Department of Health and Human Services have repeatedly asked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to revise, delay and even scuttle weekly reports on the coronavirus that they believed were unflattering to President Trump.

Current and former senior health officials with direct knowledge of phone calls, emails and other communication between the agencies said on Saturday that meddling from Washington was turning widely followed and otherwise apolitical guidance on infectious disease, the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports, into a political loyalty test, with career scientists framed as adversaries of the administration.

They confirmed an article in Politico Friday night that the C.D.C.’s public morbidity reports, which one former top health official described on Saturday as the “holiest of the holy” in agency literature, have been targeted for months by senior officials in the health department’s communications office. It is unclear whether any of the reports were substantially altered, but important federal health studies have been delayed because of the pressure.

The reports are written largely for scientists and public health experts, updating them on trends in all infectious diseases, Covid-19 included. They are guarded so closely by agency staff members that political appointees only see them just before they are published. Health department officials have typically only received notice of the titles of the reports.
