Re: Today in Trump
And there are quite a few sources that confirms he's not only continued it, but also escalated. Seems one of the few instances where both mainstream & right wing media have gone silent. of course the major problem often is one who decides to ignore because of the source, but in this instance, there are more than a few sources to choose from!

Remote-control killings: Trump takes out terrorists, boxes in Biden with drone strikes
The President has boxed in Mr. Biden. He must assuage his liberal base by condemning Mr. Trump’s lethal strikes without calling attention to the Obama-era escalation of drone killings to fight Islamic terrorists.
Army general to lead new Pentagon unit to counter drone strikes on the battlefield

WASHINGTON — Army Maj. Gen. Sean Gainey will lead a new 60-person team for the Defense Department to develop new methods to counter drone strikes, which are increasing on the battlefields of the Middle East and Afghanistan, Pentagon officials announced earlier this week.
I view it as an open secret. Open in that military news, to Pentagon officials and THEN media outlets that places these topics at the bottom causing one to think there can't be drone strikes under Dumb-Dumb. The liberal media would be all over it.
Keep it under wraps because that would be hypocritical to assault Dumb-Dumb for what they applauded the Democratic Drone king of doing; bombing civilians, cities, caves, rocks shit whatever they hit to oblivion (Bolivian if we're thinking Tysonesque )
It's interesting how Soleimani was killed by drone strike yet is worded in a way that one wouldn't know nor care how it was done, just that justice was finally served because we got the bad guy. Obama just throws out drones to see where they will land.
"If Iranian forces killed the chairman of our joint chiefs of staff for example, would you consider in an act of war? You would."
"Neocons in Washington congratulated all involved"
Amazing how his fans claim he is shaking things up, angering establishment politicians (even though he has a dozen Bush Jr working for him)
Unbelievable that his worshippers claim he has pissed off the war machine (yet provide zero quotes, unlike these posts which just quoted John Bolton)
Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched,"

I'm amazed, saddened and appalled at how this president is given a pass for drones, when in 2008 the entire Republican field of candidates claimed, proclaimed, alleged, accused Senator Obama of being an appeaser and would NOT go after the terrorist. He wont even say Islamic terrorism. Of course I know you're aware, just validating. This time with Soweto & Drumpf in the same clip making the same case and course of action. The 1st is ridiculed the latter exalted to chosen one status.
@Mr.Big1 I respectfully disagree that there is less killing and lesser drone strikes. I think there is just lesser coverage on any mainstream platform be it liberal or conservative. The 1st is more interested in claiming Donnie's tweets are news while the latter defends his tweets. The 1st group spends their time asking the POTUS to denounce racism for the 200th time....like they did with Ron Paul in 2008 & 2012, but how many lovers of USA knew that and felt it unfair when it was asked of Ron Paul? Few if any. And of course the latter group (con-servatives) keep acknowledging he has causally dismissed racism...as if his words on race is newsworthy 7 days a week. IMO it is not.
His actions should make news headlines, not his words, alone.
All's lost! Everything's going to shit!
