Trump is just chock full of dirty tricks, isn’t he?

President Donald Trump’s order of a further withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and Iraq is the latest foreign policy move on a growing list in his final weeks in office that are meant to limit President-elect Joe Biden’s options before he takes office in January.
The White House has directed newly installed acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller to focus his attention in the remaining weeks on cyber and irregular warfare, with a focus on China in particular, an administration official tells CNN. It is contemplating new terrorist designations in Yemen that could complicate efforts to broker peace. And it has rushed through authorization of a massive arms sale that could alter the balance of power in the Middle East.
The Trump team has prepared legally required transition memos describing policy challenges, but there are no discussions about actions they could take or pause. Instead, the White House is barreling ahead. A second official tells CNN their goal is to set so many fires that it will be hard for the Biden administration to put them all out.
This of course links up with Trump’s suggestion that the US bomb Iran, which would have started a war that Joe Biden would then inherit.
Now I am worried about what Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is doing visiting all of those foreign countries all of the sudden.
I have literally exhausted all of the expletives I had in my arsenal to throw at Trump and his lapdogs.
They are the very worst people to have ever run this country, and yes I think that actually includes Dick Cheney, believe it or not.
At this point, I do not think that Biden’s Justice Department will have any choice but to launch investigations into the many inhumane, unethical, and even criminal actions of the Trump administration.
