Trump has seriously weakened America,Their are numerous actions Trump has taken that reduce our readiness & when combined they are severely detrimental to the security of the world and bring us ever closer to war on some fronts

I will try to quantify how this has happened &some of the serious repercussions,In my opinion we are in the weakest position I have seen in my life time

-The Iran debacle
Because of Trump tearing up the JCPOA Iran is producing Uranium over the limits they were restricted too
in addition they have picked up their aggression in the Persian Gulf, Today we are much closer to another war and Iran having nuclear weapons then we have been in 10 years

-The Korean Debacle
Trump gave away training that cannot be replaced and has not gotten mo concessions
in fact NK is still producing uranium has not closed any nuclear launch sites and has played Trump like a fiddle he has looked inept with his I love Kim shit and his constant compilation has embarrassed the whole country. The US and SK doing operations on the Korean Peninsula
is the only way to ensure that our allies and the US can operate together seamlessly.
Multi-National, multi-service operation are the hardest exercises our military performs without training we will not be able to ensure success.
These exercises also ensure freedom of navigation checking Chinas creation of man made islands that threaten shipping in the South China Sea. When you combine the failed NK relationship, the economic war with China the US military withdrawal fm the South China Sea it is
easy to see we have moved closer to war on multiple fronts in Asia

-Saudi Arabian sellout
Trump blatantly and illegally, ignored congress and refused to pull out of Yemen his continued sales of arms to the largest sponsors of terrorism,Saudi Arabia,
the very people who attacked the Twin Towers, has lead to a war in Yemen that is tantamount to genocide, The Saudi government received no repercussions after brutally killing and dismembering a US resident and flaunts their Trump given power on the world stage
-Trump made crisis at the boarder
The services do not plan for nor do they have the numbers to add a unnecessary deployment , this reduces training time and decreases moral because the troops are at home even less, Troops need time at home with their families,
life is hard and deployment schedules are even harder with compressed deployments re-enlistments and moral go down, this is a double blow because the junior enlisted do not get required training so when promoted, because more senior people getting out,
we now have unqualified people in leadership roles

-Russian aggression,
Trumps wreaking of NATO by his words and actions has allowed Russia to deploy banned intermediate range missiles that severely threaten our F-35s and NATO Troops
to a point the Supreme allied commander said he can “no longer guarantee Europe’s safety” the dismantling of our IC especially in the cyber arena leaves everyone in the US vulnerable to cyber attacks on your personal data

Their military attacks and misinformation campaigns designed to enrage racial tension and spread propaganda to help the candidate of their choice. In the words of the Commander US Cyber command “The Russians are conducting Cyber Warfare against America”
to date Trump has not issued a single directive the IC and Military is acting on authority given by congress, when our Military did take aggressive actions Trump had a Twitter meltdown and again publicly humiliated our Military.

Trump has removed or not implement many of the sanctions passed by congress designed to deter another attack, he continues to support a hostile attack against our election even encourages countries to provide dirt on his opponents.
To me a career servicemen this is tantamount to treason and a slap in the face to all that have served. America has become a loose unpredictable actor on the world stage. As a super power we need to be the steadying force with our strength we should be able to dictate

clear actions we want others to follow, The Trump doctrine of chaos is a weak position, provides little protection, we are closer to a global war today then even the Cuban missile crisis and it has been Trumps plus a complicit GOP fault
