According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, President Trump has done more to defeat ISIS in his eight months in office than Barack Obama did to stop the terrorist organization in eight years.
That’s a bold claim, especially considering the fact that Obama spent every single day of his presidency dropping bombs in the Middle East. But, it’s not exactly wrong either.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, President Obama authorized the dropping of more than 26,000 bombs in seven different countries in 2016 alone. Surely that would be more than enough to have a bigger ISIS death count, even if Trump is doing a good job. You would think so.
Earlier this month, over 1,000 ISIS fighters surrendered in Iraq. That is an extraordinary number, especially when you consider the fact that most Islamic radical fighters are more than ready to die. Imagine how hopeless the rest of their estimated 50,000 soldiers must be feeling! Certainly, the idea of being blown up while hiding in an underground bunker by a MOAB would not appeal to even the fiercest fighters.
The point became contentious when Sanders sent out a tweet claiming that President Trump has done more to defeat ISIS than Obama. The mainstream media immediately went into scoff and accuse mode, but the facts are on her side.
“It’s indisputable that President @realDonaldTrump has done more to isolate North Korea & defeat ISIS in 8 months than Obama did in 8 years,” the tweet read.
Shortly after that, she posted a tweet of a message from Mike Pence.
“President Trump is achieving real results on the international stage,” Pence said. “While his critics engage in empty rhetoric and baseless attacks, under the president’s leadership, ISIS is on the run; North Korea is isolated like never before, and NATO allies are doing more to pay their fair share for our common defense. By increasing our national defense and reengaging our allies, President Donald Trump has restored the credibility of American power. Today our nation once again stands, without apology, as leader of the free world. That’s what American leadership on the world stage looks like and no amount of criticism at home can diminish those results.”
Sander followed this message from the Vice President with a tweet that read:
“North Korea isolated. ISIS on the run. This administration will never appease our enemies or apologize for America.”
Predictably, the mainstream media has been engaging in its usual name calling, blame-placing, and making of unfounded accusations, with CNN still carrying on with its unfounded Russian narrative. The morning talk circuit is a roundtable of how Trump is a sexist and probably has bad table manners. The Washington Post continues to throw everything at the White House that it thinks might appear to stick to the average reader.
In the meantime, the heart of the administration is doing what it does best: making great deals. Progress on the preliminaries for the border wall is moving forward. Trump’s tax plan is gaining steam and popularity by the day. At the same time, the MAGA movement is slowly unmasking Antifa and the like for the globalist funded brown-shirts that they are.
Even with all this success in negotiating for an edge over our enemies, even Trump’s biggest critic at the moment, Bob Corker, says he doesn’t think Trump is a war monger. It’s interesting that he would hand such a helpful comment over to the president in the middle of calling him names in a telephone call to the New York Times.
If it’s true that Trump is not a war monger, then-,in light of all his recent success, he must be some kind of a natural. Maybe he wasn’t just whistling Dixie when he wrote The Art of the Deal.
