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

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.

But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."
