Abby Martin: Trump Expanding The Empire + Trump’s Syria Deception

12 Jan

As usual, Trump’s words and actions are not all they cracked up to be. Distraction and deception are his modus operandi. What you see is not always (ever?) what you get. We need to keep our eyes on the prize if we hope to impede his authoritarian agenda.
