In a speech to American governors, President Donald Trump attacked the military, saying “We never win wars anymore. We never fight to win. We have to start winning wars again.”

The message was a preface to Trump’s budget announcement that he plans to increase military spending. The United States already spends more in defense than any other country in the industrial world by multitudes. Trump explained that when he was in high school they won wars with major tank battles. In the past he’s spoken out on the lack of battleships that the U.S. military has. Today, the military has turned to using more modern technologies to fight wars.

The internet didn’t particularly like Trump’s comments. Some were fearful this was a Trump announcement that he would go to war so that he could prove he could win. Others mocked Trump for beginning his need to win wars with a botched raid in Yemen that failed it’s intended goal and left one Navy SEAL dead.

Trump received four draft deferments during the Vietnam War for bone spurs and one for an unknown reason.

As the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden looms, Republican insiders are worried that Trump's attacks on the former vice president will come back to haunt him after the president and his campaign spent months portraying Biden as decrepit and not up to the job of leading the country.

According to a report from the New York Times, the Trump campaign's history of posting highly-edited videos on social media of Biden appearing to fall asleep or forget his words are about to blow up on Trump's team when Biden takes the stage and goes one-on-one with the president.

Published

CNN host Fareed Zakaria expressed alarm on Sunday over President Donald Trump's ability to "stay in office without actually winning the vote."

"By declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, President Trump has agitated many who fear he will refuse to leave office even if he loses the November election and may even resort to violence," Zakaria said on his CNN program.
