John McEntee, one of Donald Trump's most-favored aides, handed retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor a piece of paper with a few notes scribbled on it. He explained: "This is what the president wants you to do."1. Get us out of Afghanistan.2. Get us out of Iraq and Syria.3. Complete the withdrawal from Germany.4. Get us out of Africa.It was Nov. 9, 2020 — days after Trump lost his re-election bid, 10 weeks before the end of his presidency and just moments after Macgregor was offered a post as senior adviser to acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller.
When it came down to it, Trump was indecisive. In the view of top officials, he did not seem to want to own the consequences of a precipitous withdrawal.This allowed the Pentagon to dismiss his tweets and rants and maintain the status quo. They stuck to the National Defense Strategy — a document they fully believed Trump hadn't bothered to read.Some senior officials also deliberately deceived Trump. "What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal," Jim Jeffrey, Trump's special envoy to Syria and the anti-ISIS coalition, told Defense One in a post-election interview in November 2020.
Great work, liberals.
You're far more interested in fact-free, hateful fantasies.
You appear more interested in denying facts from hateful BLM and ANTIFA movements and regardless of how many cops kill more unarmed people each year, (ones that don't do what they're asked because they're thick), it DOESN'T change the nature of the riots, that you are deluded about.
you're a piece of garbage who apparently worships cops and loves the status quo, so you're hell bent on exaggerating minor harms into a problem they never were and never will be. Go fuck yourself, shit for brains.
In terms of damage and death and destruction where things actually got burned the fuck down, the BLM/Antifa were way the fuck worse and yet the media and other lefties treat the Cap. riots as if those were worse and just ignore and sweep the BLM riots under the rug.
Some good intentions, lots of bad decisions.
….rather than making him look as Presidential as I knew him to be.
