TRUMP: "I'm not saying the military's in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy" pic.twitter.com/YYEbjRuZyb

President Trump continues to kill it, on the warpath towards total domination in November.
The man just went out there and accused the military of being involved in a conspiracy with the arms dealers to engage in endless wars.
“I’m not saying the military’s in love with me. The soldiers are. The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” the president said during a Monday press briefing.
Of course, the news media lost their minds, and claimed that being against endless wars is “an attack on the military.”
After fighting a brutal war & then serving eight years as US President, here was Dwight Eisenhower's 1961 warning about the menacing joint power of the US military and the private arms industry. This was before Vietnam, the Reagan Cold War build-up and post-9/11 militarism: pic.twitter.com/IRl8ZTdpIo

Imagine that one of the biggest complaints the left has about Donald Trump is that he doesn’t start wars.
After many people on Twitter brought up President Eisenhower’s speech denouncing the military industrial complex, the pro-war CNN analyst Ryan Brown whined that it wasn’t what Trump said that he disagreed with – it was how he said it.
Some folks really ought to read what President Eisenhower actually said in his farewell address. While they are both critical of the military industrial complex, nowhere does Eisenhower actually accuse military leaders of engaging in shooting wars to boost profits for firms

“Well, I’m not disagreeing – I just don’t like his tone” is a statement that sums up so much of what is going on in this society.
Why would it possibly matter how the president talks? Why would any personality trait that the president has matter, in any way?
You might talk about the manner of speaking of someone who you invite to a dinner party. The president should be judged on his ability to be the president, and literally nothing else.
It is simply bizarre the way these media people come out and talk about his tone.
Jew rat Jennifer Rubin was out there talking about his tone.
so Trump insulted the military during a press conference to deny he insults the military.

Jews love war. They have always loved war. As a great man once said, “Jews are behind all the wars.”
They attack men of peace.
Trump’s statements against these endless war rats were absolutely epic and historical.
Remember: he’s the first president in four decades that didn’t start a war.
