    Thanks for the low-information* citizen report. Trump has been sending troops back into the ME and Afghanistan by the thousands over the past two months.
    Trump Didn’t Shrink U.S. Military Commitments Abroad—He Expanded Them

    * Is this due to just laziness on your part of on orders from Cult of Filthy Donnie?

    Officials tell CNN that Rood has differed with the administration on a number of issues including Afghanistan and Ukraine. Officials have said Rood often was perceived as not embracing some of the changes in policy the White House and senior Pentagon officials wanted.
    One official said some examples of Rood's differing views from some of Trump's key policy stances included being skeptical about peace talks with the Taliban as well as the administration decision to scale down military exercises with South Korea during talks with North Korea and him pushing for a more aggressive approach to Russia by supporting Ukraine
    .

    From the article, CNN
    This has nothing to do with policy. This is Dirtbag enforcing a personal loyalty test on everyone in the executive branch. This might be news to you (as facts do not penetrate the walls of the Cult of Filthy Donnie Dirtbag) but every elected official, every person joining the military and every civilian hired by the federal government takes an oath not to the President but to the Constitution:

    I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.[1]
    Your Dear Dirtbag wipes his stinking ass with that oath on a daily basis.
