When it comes to the war on terror, President Donald Trump is no different than other presidents in the past.
He’s been willing to sacrifice America’s own interests in order to gain the support of allies, including many in his own party.
As a result, we’ve been living through wars that are often driven by the same foreign policy objectives that we were fighting in the first place.
The war on terrorism has been a disastrous failure.
We are living through the most catastrophic military conflict since World War II, and a massive humanitarian crisis.
There is no longer a single credible national security threat to our homeland.
The threat posed by the Islamic State and other extremist groups in Iraq and Syria is now much larger than any threat we faced during the previous administration.
The President has made it clear that the goal of his war on radical Islamic terrorists is not to protect the homeland but to win the hearts and minds of Americans.
The goal is to convince them to support a war that he can win by force.
We know that he is wrong.
Our own military, which we are losing because of his policies, is failing to confront a new and emerging threat.
The terrorist threat is far more diffuse than we previously thought, and has grown in the wake of the Obama administration’s decision to extend a controversial policy of indefinite detention.
While our troops are engaged in the battle against the Islamic state, many in the United States are struggling with mental health issues, domestic abuse, domestic violence, and other issues.
They are living with the consequences of our policies.
As we enter the next phase of this conflict, the President must make the case to the American people that our country has to make the difficult decision to give up our freedoms, our liberties, and our way of life.
He needs to explain to them that we are in this fight not only to protect ourselves, but to defend the American way of living.
This will not be easy.
He has already alienated the entire Republican party and many Americans by proposing a massive increase in the number of refugees coming to the United Kingdom.
He must explain to the people of Britain that the security of the United State and the safety of our citizens are not a priority, and that he will not protect the people if he does not have a strong relationship with the people.
The American people are demanding a different kind of leadership.
It’s time for our President to start listening to the concerns of the American public.
He should also begin by showing leadership in the fight against ISIS and other terrorist groups, and show a commitment to working with allies in the region to confront the threat posed to our country.
President Donald J. Trump has been commander-in-chief of the military for the past eight years.
Prior to taking office, he served as an army captain and a Marine Corps lieutenant colonel.
In his first year in office, President Trump has dramatically changed the way the United American military is trained and equipped.
He is a former commander- in-chief who spent his first four years as Commander in Chief as a private citizen.
The military and the American armed forces have proven themselves capable of winning wars of choice.
This is an important and promising time to take a look back and evaluate the successes and failures of the war in Afghanistan and the wars in Iraq, Syria, and Libya.
In the next six months, the United states will be facing two major challenges: the Islamic States and other militant groups, including al Qaeda and the Taliban, are on the march.
The Trump administration must now lead with decisive action and be prepared to meet the challenges of a new era.
Our military has made a major shift in recent years, making it one of the most technologically advanced nations in the world.
We’re now engaged in a war in which the threat from al Qaeda, the Taliban and other Islamic terrorist groups is far greater than at any time in our nation’s history.
As commander-elect of the Department of Defense, I intend to deliver the greatest possible results for the men and women who serve in uniform.
As President Trump moves forward with his plan to reestablish the United Nations and rebuild our military, the military and our military leaders will be required to make critical decisions that will have lasting impacts on the American economy and national security.
The United States needs to be prepared for an uncertain future, and we will need to have an enduring, positive relationship with our allies, especially the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan.
The new president must also work with Congress and the United Nation to ensure that our troops, airmen, and sailors are prepared to fight a full range of future threats.
As Commander-in and Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, I have the responsibility to ensure the safety and security of American and allied troops and our allies and to take every opportunity to support our partners, including those in the Arab world, to defeat the threat.
President Trump will inherit a divided military, a shattered economy, and an unstable political environment that will be difficult to navigate
