Not being talked about is the ramped up military operations overseas that is being runned by the generals with Trump's blessings...Who is running our foreign policy and our war policy?? Not someone elected, that's for sure...

More Than 1,000 Civilians Reportedly Killed by U.S.-Led Airstrikes as Trump Expands War on Terror..

https://www.democracynow.org/2017/3/27/more_than_1_000_civilians_killed

Details are emerging about U.S.-led coalition airstrikes that are believed to have killed over 200 people in a single day in Iraq. The U.S.-led coalition has admitted launching airstrikes on March 17 targeting a crowded neighborhood in Mosul. They are among the deadliest U.S. airstrikes in the region since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. According to some reports, one of these strikes destroyed houses where hundreds of people were taking refuge amid the city’s heavy fighting. Up to 80 civilians, including women and children, may have died in one house’s basement alone. This bombing is just one of an onslaught of U.S.-led coalition airstrikes in Iraq and Syria that has killed as many as 1,000 civilians in March alone, according to the journalistic project Airwars. For more, we speak with Chris Woods, founder of Airwars, a nonprofit group that monitors civilian deaths from international airstrikes in Syria and Iraq.

Isn't it a little disturbing that Trump really isn't involved in the wars and operations overseas..Shouldn't we know who is actually running these operations?? Not that I think Trump is capable of making these decisions, but that is who the Country voted for..Am I crazy???

It's strange to me the the MOAB drop on Afghanistan didn't get more attention.

The biggest bomb in the WORLD outside of a nuclear bomb was dropped by USA on a country and that didn't make us all sit up and stare out and wonder what is going to happen next.

the hustle is real lol...

Nearly $500,000 from President Trump's 2020 re-election campaign has gone directly to Trump-owned restaurants, hotels and golf clubs, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

Of the more than $6 million in campaign funds spent in the first three months of 2017, $274,013 has gone toward rent at Trump Tower, the report said, citing Federal Election Commission filings.

Another $58,685 has gone toward lodging at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., and $13,828 has gone toward renting facilities and catering costs at Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.
During his 2016 campaign, Trump's campaign spent more than $14 million on Trump-branded companies and family-owned businesses.

The filings come amid growing criticism over the president's approach to distancing himself from the Trump Organization.

FEC filings this week revealed that more than $42 million has been raised since January for Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee — more than twice the amount raised by President Obama after his 2008 election win in the same time frame.

Unlike Obama, Trump has not stopped fundraising since his election victory last November. More than $42 million has been raised for President Trump's campaign efforts and the Republican National Committee (RNC) since January.
