Reagan’s daughter wallops Trump for making decisions ‘on a whim and a lunch’: ‘You can’t end a war in ‘280 characters’

Published

On Wednesday, Ronald Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis nailed President Donald Trump over his abrupt decision making in regards to foreign policy.

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Davis explained that war is extremely complicated and cannot be solved in a “280 character” tweet.

“We have a president who effectively just ended a war via Twitter — you can’t get much more simplistic than that. He didn’t consult his military advisers or the Pentagon about pulling out of Syria; he didn’t weigh consequences or choices. He apparently just woke up, fixed his hair, picked up his phone and went on Twitter,” she wrote.

Trump announced via Twitter that he wanted to pull American troops out of the Middle East, and even falsely said that ISIS is “defeated.”

Trump also has failed to listen to the advice of his generals and even tweeted attacks towards formers generals who disagree with him.

Davis added, “After years of war, thousands of lives lost and thousands of people horribly wounded, a decision about war comes down to a whim and a lunch date.”

After scrutiny about pulling troops out of the Middle East, Trump traveled to Iraq to visit service members. However, his trip was criticized for little accomplishments, and pundits suggested Trump went on the trip as just a photo opportunity.

Davis explained that US services members and their families deserve a Commander in Chief who has a deep and broad understanding of foreign policy.

“Our soldiers’ lives and the lives of our allies on the battlefield are worth more than impetuous messages pared down to 280 characters,” she wrote.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
