tbf Trump also proselytised hydroxychloroquine, which is used by most of the world and avoided by corrupt countries with the worst treatment outcomes.

Not trying to pick issues with anybody, but the identification/universal pronoun here is wild coming from non-citizens. Does most US news come over via the American web, or does it filter through on European television and print media as well?
we are all citizens of empire.

Not convinced that 'the last guy was in just as bad a shape' is the ideal counter.

Is there not some sort of medical exam that incoming presidents must pass? Strange that we have a better guarantee of Crawley Town's incoming right back's mental acuity than that of the most powerful man in the world.
No but what I said "Anyone can see he's perfectly compos mentis and in way way better shape than the last guy" is a perfectly adequate response.

Compost mentis, more like.

If 'anyone can see' it, what has he got to fear from a simple cognitive test?

Running scared.

Why would he have something to fear?
The weird thing is you failing your own personal cogency test by dribbling this shite out four years too late.

It's not up to me. I agree a president should demonstrate - at least - basic cognitive ability, but, once again, why bring this up AFTER a slurring, sweating, shitting, staggering incoherent blob of lies has finally shuffled off the stage? Didn't this ever occur to you when he was talking about the airports in the civil war, hailing Vietnam as a great victory, meandering off into his own world about wind farms etc
Why did this never occur to you when this was going on every day for the last four years? You prick.

Pick a war, any war - Trump didn't start it.
So, if you have legitimate points, why repeatedly attack Biden on the one (ok one of many) thing on which he massively and embarrassingly outperforms his predecessor? Genuinely I don't understand what you're getting at.

He may not have declared any new wars, but that's a 20th century way of thinking. It just isn't done like that any more.

Trump has massively extended the use of drones - currently in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia - and exceeded Obama's totals both for overall drone strikes and civilian casualties. He also rescinded Obama's order for civilian death tolls to be recorded.


(Bear in mind Obama was in power for twice as long.)

Then there was that time he nearly started a war with Iran, which we all seem to have forgotten about.

Continued unconditional support for the Saudis in Yemen, where they're committing atrocities, and where the US-backed anti-Houthi (I.e. anti-Iran) coalition is now working with Al-Qaeda!


The only place I know of where Trump has de-escalated is the one place where he shouldn't have, by leaving the Kurds to the non-existent mercy of the Turkish army in northern Syria.

But yeah, apart from all that, a real force for world peace.
