Oh, how one can bring back some of Donald Trump’s idiotic statements while he ran for the presidency of the United States. If only they had registered with enough voters in at least three key states to keep this guy out of the White House.
Alas, it didn’t happen.
“I know more about ISIS than the generals,” Trump boasted recklessly during the campaign. We now are likely to learn the utter fallacy of that nonsensical boast.
Trump issued a statement via Twitter that he is ready to pull all U.S. troops out of Syria. He has declared that ISIS in Syria has been defeated, meaning I suppose that the terror monsters no longer pose a threat to innocent human beings.
However, Trump’s statement goes against what the Pentagon brass wants. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have argued that the United States should maintain at least a token force in Syria to lend assistance to the anti-ISIS forces that are seeking to destroy the organization.
The president didn’t heed the Joint Chiefs’ desire.
I suppose you can say that he is acting on the boast he made, that he knows “more about ISIS than the generals.”
I do not believe for an instant that the president knows anything about anything.
