Donald Trump began emptying his brains into his tweets long before he took office. Back in 2011, then-real estate mogul Trump claimed that President Barack Obama would begin a war with Iran “in order to get elected” to a second term. It was hard to believe that he was so casual about war. Now that Trump has been elected, we know that the president often projects what he is thinking onto others.
International affiliate reporter for the Associated Press (AP) Philip Crowther tweeted what Trump just said about the Afghanistan war:
‘Just in, Trump’s comments on Afgahanistan, via pooler @DavidNakamura
“I could win that war in a week. I don’t want to kill 10 million people. Afghanistan could be wiped off the face of the earth. I don’t want to go that route.”’
In an ABC News tweet, the president grandly noted he could wipe Afghanistan “off the face of the earth:”
‘Pres. Trump claims he could win Afghan war “in a week. I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.”
‘I have plans on Afghanistan, that, if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth…I don’t want to go that route.’

Back in 2011, resort-owner Trump tweeted that Obama would “start a war with Iran:”
‘In order to get elected, @BarackObama will start a war with Iran.’
A year later, Trump tweeted a very similar idea:
‘Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate.’
