When US President Donald Trump visited troops in Afghanistan recently he claimed, no boasted, that he got them all a ten percent pay increase this year.
He also claims he was counselled to only give two, three or four percent but no, the magnanimous President insisted on ten percent.
Only it was 2.4%, according to the full story at news.com.au.
He also claimed they hadn’t had a patriae in ten years. In fact they have received one every year. More last year in fact.
So the Donald Trump personal fake news train rolls on, with self agrandising lie after lie. US citizens now know what it is like to be have Vladimir Putin as President.
The cover photo shows Highland Park Community College, in 1985 and 2012. It closed in 2009 because of financial reasons.
With photos like this of Detroit so easy to find, how can America still dictate terms to other countries, spending billions on wars it cannot afford when at home there are hundreds of thousands of homeless people and many still suffering from the GFC?
It is unconscionable conduct from supposedly the leader of the free world, when in fact it only leads in hypocrisy.
Take care of your own first, then if you have money to spare spend it in other areas. But until every American has a home you have no right to spend so much on defence, or as it should correctly be called, warmongering.
