Trump’s First State of the Union Speech


President Trump delivered a conventional State of the Union address and moved to turn the successes of his first year in office, tax cuts, deregulation and an offensive against the Islamic State,  into a second-year agenda that he said will bring about a “new American moment.” Given all the hatred that has been poured out against this president, it is amazing he managed to get a lot done. However, he also said he was signing an order to keep Guantanamo Bay open because terrorists are criminals. What he obviously fails to understand is if they were really terrorists, then put them on trial. They not been given trials because they are casualties of a war on terror that went too far. The one terrorist they did put on trial who was their best case, the jury acquitted of 223 counts finding him guilty of only a conspiracy. After that stunning defeat, that was the end of trials.

The government tried to release some, but they were killed back home assuming they had become CIA spies. That was the end of that programs. Then they gave 5 terrorists for one American soldier to try to get rid of some that way. Trump seems to be completely in the dark on this issue.

    Terrorists picked up in combat zones are military combatants and should be tried in military court. I would prefer the terrorists not be taken prisoner and simply killed. Gitmo detainees rotate back to their homes and recycle back into terrorism. Since 2001, through 2018, give me a break, something, not detention, needs to happen. Let God sort ’em out.
