I challenge anyone to name one thing that Obama did, that does not need to be undone! Obama did nothing but evil to the American people. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and Secretary of Defense, James Mattis knows this so they took things in their hands!
They both are working together to abandon the position of special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan that was created by former President Obama.
Tillerson and Mattis suggest that things should work differently Their actions have forced Lauren Miller, a special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, to resign from her position. The responsibilities of the special representative will return to the South and Central Asian Affairs Bureau, which will allow a broader approach to the problems in the Middle East.
Because of the problems in Pakistan and Afghanistan back in 2009, then-president Obama created the special representative position which was widely considered to be redundant because, at the time, the South and Central Asian Affairs Bureau was already responsible for leading missions in the region.
The post was eliminated because Rex Tillerson is attempting to reduce the budget of the State Department by 32 percent, in accordance with President Trump’s cost-saving initiative. The decision was made as James Mattis planned to deliver 5000 more troops to Afghanistan to train locals in the fight against the growing Taliban insurgency.
Thank God someone is trying to cut federal spending. We are fortunate to be in much better position because we are now having a POTUS who is on the right side and is willing to actually WORK to get stuff done for the American people.
Cutting cost and waste can be a good thing. It is something that is needed. Cleaning the house like this is overdue. Good to see things taking effect. Thanks, Team Trump and Team US Government.
