Trump has been hiding the numbers of drone murders. (Hold him accountable too)
President from January 20, 2009 – January 20, 2017. Barack Obama
Over 8 years, how many bombs?
How many dead? In 2015 and 2016 alone, Obama oversaw the military and CIA as the government dropped about 50,000 bombs.
No really, do the math. How many do you think we have murdered?

“President Obama claims the right to order “targeted killings” of terrorists on his own authority. “Targeted killing” is Orwellian language. According to the New York Times, Barack Obama defines a terrorist as any military-age male in a kill zone, unless there is intelligence demonstrating he is not.
