“Crediting Trump with not starting any new wars is a good way to distract from the fact that the U.S. was still at war for his entire presidency and Trump didn’t get the U.S. out of any of those conflicts. He escalated every war he inherited, and he came close to getting the U.S. into at least two new ones. He was given an easy way out of involvement in the war on Yemen when Congress passed their war powers resolution to end it, but Trump vetoed the measure. … I am going over all this again because there should be no illusions that Trump is interested in or capable of delivering peace.” (05/14/24)
