It has been confirmed. On October 26-27 2019 the US Armed Forces killed ISIS leader named
Abu Bakr. Donald Trump gave a very arrogant, and self anointed announcement on this on yesterday.
Do you believe that he should get credit for this latest event. Comments. Speak now or forever hold your peace.

No different than Obama spiking the ball for Bin Ladin. That's what presidents do.

[@3557,puck61] Of course I can. And I am. 🙂
[@322117,Zonuss] I see that! 😏
SmartKat · 56-60, F
[@3557,puck61] President Obama did not kill OBL; military operatives did. But I for one never said he did.

First of all, the p.o.s. killed himself. And he was only a symbolic leader at the end. What I found interesting is that this action was in place for months and it got totally upended when Trump announced we were pulling out of Syria. So I'd say this all happened in spite of Trump.
And I'll also add how disgusted I was with his speech announcing it. He was pimping his book alongside using words that may very well incite violence here and in other countries.

I could have sworn that Trump was in the US and not Syria - it was US troops risking their lives not Trump

Idrc. I'm very conflicted on this sort of thing, as I'm like half-pacifist and half-warmonger. It's pretty complicated. As for credit, it wouldn't have happened if he had stopped it or refused it as Commander in Chief. Generals may take credit for their troops actions, even if they didn't take the risks or do the dirty work, just the same.

It's the same in business, really. The peons at the bottom do the heavy lifting, and the guys at the top take the credit--and the discredit. That's basically what being in a position of power is, isn't it? You get the responsibility, and with that comes both the credit and the discredit. As a leader, you're responsible for what your troops do: both good and bad.

[@437744,Tatsumi] it should be, but I’ve never seen trump take blame. He only ever takes credit.
Artasia · 22-25, F
He announced the death of a terrorist. Funny how we still can't seem to get on the same page and be happy about that. Gotta find something wrong. Can't just accept the little victory.

I personally didn't read into it so much that I think it was self annointed or arrogant. I'm glad the terrorist is dead. The credit goes to the president for a reason.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@757300,Artasia] I support the fact that our US military was the reason for this success. 🙂
Ynotisay · M
[@757300,Artasia] You don't think him pimping his book, and how he did it, was arrogant? Who else would make this operation all about himself?
Artasia · 22-25, F
I have yet to see his actual speech so based on what was presented here, nothing he said came off as arrogant or speaking about himself. You may be correct, the president definitely has a knack for saying stupid shit but here I didn't see any. So I can't answer to that.

[@479686,MistyCee] What about this tweet? Does it show much modestly on Trump’s part?
[@10970,SimplyTracie] that sounds like Trump.
SimplyTracie · 22-25, F
[@479686,MistyCee] Yes. No one says it better than Trump.

Trump was Brilliant as always! He Told MSM and the Democrats he was pulling our troops out. Just as Trump planned, MSM and the dems blabbed it all over the world "We're abandoning the Kurds" Then the rat stuck his head out to find we went nowhere! Pure Brilliance by our president!!!
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@893459,JT123] I think it was pure luck. But he also had to put back more troops because he was too impulsive. And he still has a lot of opposition from the
Republican Party concerning his conduct and the information he has released to the public. Not to mention his associates who are almost non existent at this point. 🙂
[@322117,Zonuss] His impulsiveness of announcing the pulling of troops and then people dying because of it, could have brought charges against the USA of Crimes Against Humanity. [i]"A deliberate act, typically as a systematic campaign that causes human suffering, or death, on a large scale."[/i]
[@763897,Harriet03] If those clueless hipster coffee house commandos made the choices of who leads this country we would be as fecked up as England in 3 months!!
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
Apparently Trump offered him immunity in exchange for dirt on Biden!! 🤣
MissTaken · 31-35, F
[@763897,Harriet03] 😂👍😂
SmartKat · 56-60, F
I was under the impression that military operatives did that.
[@64306,SmartKat] including one special canine.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@64306,SmartKat] Yeah, but if there was a school shooting he would go running in to save the day (and possibly the kids), alone. According to him, of course and hypothetically.
Sure,but not as much credit as he gave himself.
Sure, why not. Except he ruined the moment with his crass description of the killing and by informing the Russians before our own Congress.

This won’t increase his polling numbers, either.
[@1026,GeorgeWashingtonJr] Let's hope on the polls.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
“But anybody sitting in that office would get a call to say, we have him. And he said, go get him. What’s he going to say, don’t get him? And he gets all this credit? It’s a lot of crap.”
Let's just wait till another democrat creates another warlord so that another republican kills him and the cycle goes on and on.
MasterLee · 51-55, M
[@10788,PiecingMeBackTogether] george makes shit up as he goes
[@9463,MasterLee] Why are you all talking in riddles 🤔
[@10788,PiecingMeBackTogether] You said Democrats create warlords. So Reagan was a Democrat?
Kind of hard to not give him credit since he made the order. But some people who simply hate him always find some aspect related to him to complain about.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@621859,Markb4793] “But anybody sitting in that office would get a call to say, we have him. And he said, go get him. What’s he going to say, don’t get him? And he gets all this credit? It’s a lot of crap.”

All Trump did was approve the mission. If he even was a part of the decision making process.

Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@621859,Markb4793] You can't just disrespect people and think it is ok. It is not. 🙂
Trump is no Military Strategist, he isn't "smarter than all the Generals", I wouldn't be surprised if we learn that he wasn't told very far in advance for concern that his insatiable ego would tweet about it and blow it before it could happen as in his dramatic tweet "Something very big just happened", without any explanation.
Northwest · M
I will give him as much credit as he gave President Obama, when Bin Laden was taken out. He did give President Obama credit for that, at the time, right?
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@9416,Northwest] No. He slammed Obama for that actually. 🙂
LvChris · 41-45, M
Credit to the military, just like when Obama oversaw the last big murder. It happened on his watch, it’s good in some ways, and now we will see what happens next.
GJOFJ3 · 61-69, M
It was well planned and executed, as Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces he definitely deserves credit
And you have a problem with this because ???? He's a white man ? - I did not have a shit fit whe President BO killed Bin Laden. God !
[@322117,Zonuss] OK what else - dont say Obama Care because we all know that a pile of BS
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@760047,MarmeeMarch] Obama Care. Like you do realize that he did keep the US economy from going over the cliff like George Bush did. The numbers didnt just go down on its own. 🙄
[@322117,Zonuss] OK fine - I am not a news whore - in fact I dont watch the news at all
YMITheWayIM · 41-45, M
I hope it brings peace.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
[@270290,YMITheWayIM] You cannot be serious. 🙂
NIC0LE · F
Good job on doing your job Mr President. You get a 🌟
NIC0LE · F
[@4018,ExperienceDLT] hey look, I've been waiting to issue out this gold star to him for almost 4 years. Just let him have this one. 🤦🏾‍♀️
[@601035,Khole] ok ok well maybe you can give it to him for worst presidential haircut
NIC0LE · F
[@4018,ExperienceDLT] *sighs* fine. 🤦🏾‍♀️
fairefoutre · 70-79, M
He just happened to be in the Whitehouse at the time, same can be said for Obama, spooks and soldiers did it
Fernie · F
I don't believe a word of it....now he says a dog hunted the guy down and killed him.
[@331316,Fernie] But who let the dogs out?

(Sorry, I couldn't resist)
No if you continue to bomb enough areas your bound to get lucky eventually
SW User
Yeah. He killed bad guy.
SW User
I give him credit for keeping this quiet from the dumbocrats. It doesn’t matter what this man does someone is always gonna have something negative to say about it.
SimplyTracie · 22-25, F
[@914046,Bigwill75] Did Zonuss say something negative here? 🤔
