Trump About To Surpass Obama’s EIGHT YEAR Civilian Death Toll

Written by Mark

Trump moves quickly when it comes to killing civilians. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A new investigation by Airwars for The Daily Beast has logged a massive escalation in civilian deaths caused by coalition air strikes in Iraq and Syria against ISIS, as led by President Donald Trump’s White House.

At least 2,200 civilians are estimated to have been killed up until July 13. That’s over 360 a month since Trump’s inauguration, or around 12 every day. By contrast, the Obama administration oversaw 2,300 civilian deaths in total over eight years.

(He was hardly a dovish president however – Obama’s legacy includes vastly expanding the military’s use of drones which, in 2016, dropped some of an estimated 26,171 bombs on targets in majority-Muslim countries around the world.)”*
