I'm pretty sure he has. I can't think of a single conflict he has gotten us into. Can you name one?

LOL

Relative to Obama and what Hillary would have brought about I would say Trump is about nothing but Peace.

Wouldn't surprise me if Trump wants a Nobel to put next to his golden throne.

This is why all the arguments from the left about how terrible Trump is fall on deaf ears for me. Boo hoo. He says mean things. Despite a great deal of searching online I can't even find total figures for Obama, but under his administration, hundreds of thousands of civilians - not even combatants, civilians - died in conflicts we were involved in. shadowproof.com Some 2500 of our military died in Afghanistan and Iraq. www.rollingstone.com Trump has started no new conflicts, attempted to bring troops back, and not been behind any major destabilization of sovereign foreign nations we have no business being in in the first place. From the point of view of one who has actually remained consistent since opposing Bush, Trump has inarguably caused vastly less damage and death across the world than either Bush or Obama. In this respect, he is an unmitigated success and a far better president than either. Yet, rather than focus on this and find common ground, Democrats have nothing better to do than push divisive identity politics and claim Trump is the second coming of Hitler, when it's their own that are perfectly fine killing untold numbers of brown people - so long as they're in the middle east - while screaming about simply detaining them when they break immigration law here at home.

Hypocrites without principle that flip flop into war mongers the moment a Republican takes their own pro-peace position. Question why a leftist would abandon Dems to vote Trump, you have the answer right there.

And Trump ended those right?

"US intelligence officials will no longer have to publicly announce how many civilians they have killed in covert air strikes outside the US's official war zones in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.

President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on Wednesday which rolled back a key Obama-era policy that sought to make counter-terrorism operations more transparent. "

Trump found the answer. Hide the dead bodies and call yourself mother Teresa.

That's certainly worthy of a Nobel.
