Should Trump have control of the nuclear football?
Earlier this week Donald Trump sent out a tweet blasting former President Obama for releasing from Guantanamo Bay 122 detainees who've since returned to combat.
"122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!"
This sounds terrible - but it's just more Fake News.
While it IS true that 122 detainees have returned to combat after being released from Guantanamo, President Obama is hardly to blame.
113 of the Guantanamo detainees who've returned to combat after being released were released when George W. Bush was president. So it looks like Trump got this idea from Fox and Friends, which had sent out a tweet about 30 minutes earlier about the drone death of a former Gitmo detainee that also pointed out that "at least 122 former Gitmo detainees have re-engaged in terrorism."
"Former Gitmo detainee killed by a U.S. airstrike in Yemen; at least 122 former Gitmo detainees have re-engaged in terrorism"
Should a person who gets his facts from Fox and Friends have control of the nuclear football?
