After receiving widespread criticism from the political establishment over a partial troop withdrawal from Syria, President Trump addressed the painful reality of America’s interventionist foreign policy in a heartfelt speech on Wednesday.
“The hardest thing I have to do, by far — much harder than the witch hunt — is signing letters to parents of soldiers that have been killed,” Trump said. “There’s not a lot of upsides, if there’s any upside at all, and in many cases there’re only downsides.”
“The hardest thing I have to do is signing those letters. That’s the hardest thing I have to do. Each letter is different. We make each letter different, and last week I signed five of them for Afghanistan, one in Iraq, one in Syria from two weeks ago, and sometimes I call the parents, sometimes I see the parents,” he said.
Trump talked about “blue-on-green attacks” in which foreign soldiers who are trained by U.S. military personnel turn the gun on the individuals who trained them. Trump says these types of attacks are particularly prevalent in Afghanistan, a war that Trump is intent upon bringing to an end.
He displayed an empathy toward the lives of soldiers that his predecessors never had.
“I see people that were smiling, saying, ‘Oh Mr. President, thank you for being here.’ […] I’ve seen people that I thought were really incredible the way they were — I didn’t even understand how they could take it so well — scream like I’ve never seen anything before. Sometimes, they’ll run to the coffin. They’ll break through military barriers. They’ll run to the coffin and jump on top of the coffin. Crying mothers and wives, crying desperately,” Trump said.
What he has experienced as commander-in-chief has made Trump realize the necessity of bringing the troops home, and reversing the failed foreign policy that has exacerbated the many problems of the Middle East.
“And this is on these endless wars that just never stopped and there’s a time and there’s a place, but it’s time to stop,” Trump added.

Trump has enraged the Republican Party establishment with his decision to remove troops from Syria and hand over captured ISIS militants to Turkish dictator Recep Erdoğan.
“President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria is having sickening and predictable consequences,” said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), whose father was the architect of the disastrous Iraq War.
“The Kurds have been a great partner. … Turkey under Erdoğan has not been. I’m concerned about what can happen next,” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) said. “A lot can happen in a hurry and we’ll just have to see what happens when we get back. I wish the president would reconsider.”
“It’s a terrible mistake. We’ll have to think of what options there are. I’m sure the Senate will, potentially, take some vote to disagree with that decision,” Sen. “Little” Marco Rubio (R-FL) said.
However, Trump has made it clear that his goal is to put America first. If doing the right thing means angering Republican career politicians in Washington D.C., so be it.
“I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace, than to risk peace in pursuit of politics,” Trump iconically said last year.
Biden White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Slavery Reparations Without Congressional Approval
Enshrining the new leftist caste system.
The Biden White House has announced that they will “start acting now” on reparations for slavery regardless of what goes on in Congress.
“We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” Senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond said during a recent interview with Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” he added.
Richmond believes that House Resolution 40, a measure introduced in the legislature to study reparations, will eventually pass, but he maintains that the administration will move on the issue regardless of what the facts or logic of the matter dictate.
“We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country,” Richmond said.
Richmond is building on the case made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has affirmed the Biden administration’s support of the reparations study.
“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” Psaki said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
Biden is already taking measures to give additional handouts to certain minority constituents. He took executive action shortly after being installed as president that compelled the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality.”
Richmond confirmed that the Biden administration will be conferring additional government-granted privileges to minorities, particularly when it comes to educational opportunity.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way. Those are doable,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s embrace of Black Lives Matter radicalism as part of his devil’s bargain to seize power:
The terrorist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) uses the same digital fundraising platform, ActBlue, that is used by former vice president Joe Biden and many prominent political figures in the Democrat Party, the National Pulse has discovered.
“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” the donation tab on the BLM official website states, which is rerouted to ActBlue.
The donation page notes that “ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving” and any “contribution is made from my own funds or the funds of an authorizing corporation or other entity, and the funds are not being provided by any other person or entity.”
Biden’s presidential campaign has received a stunning $119,253,857 from the ActBlue platform, which sustains his presidential ambitions as well as the BLM terror movement.
Biden is living up to his mandate to enact an aggressive and corrosive form of identity politics. As the demographic collapse of the historical American nation continues, a new anti-white caste system of sorts will continue to take shape.
