Today we learned officially that Donald Trump lied about his secret “foolproof” plan to defeat ISIS.
You’ll recall that multiple times during the presidential campaign, Donald Trump bragged about how he had a secret plan to defeat ISIS, but he couldn’t tell anybody, because then ISIS would find out. And no one would want that.
According to today’s White House pool report, a senior administration official said today that Trump will soon be announcing an executive action requiring the Pentagon to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS:
The official said a third executive action would call on military leaders to present a report to the president in 30 days that outlines a strategy for defeating ISIS.
Which is awfully confusing, because Trump already has a foolproof plan to defeat ISIS. Trump told us as much:
“I don’t want the enemy to know what I’m doing,” Trump told Fox News in May 2015, the month before launching his presidential campaign. “Unfortunately, I’ll probably have to tell at some point, but there is a method of defeating them quickly and effectively and having total victory.”
He added: “All I can tell you it is a foolproof way of winning, and I’m not talking about what some people would say, but it is a foolproof way of winning the war with ISIS.” ISIS is an alternative acronym for the Islamic State.
Yet today we find out that Trump doesn’t have a foolproof way to defeat ISIS.
The man is a serial liar, or delusional. Either way, the word of the president of the United States now means nothing.
