In short, the blame is on Trump because of his ignorance of how to navigate the system and his belligerence towards the very people who have the power to pass and allow his policies. If anything, this administration should show observers just how little power a President actually has. Remember all that "Obama's a dictator" crap? LOL
...they started in the late 20th century but were rare until the last part of President Barack Obama's second term, when Republican attorneys general started getting national injunctions to stop the Obama administration. Now, the tables are turned.
Democratic attorneys general are getting national injunctions to stop the Trump administration.
At the end of the day, policies and legislation are not going to get passed if they can be interpreted as unconstitutional or unlawful.
It is that simple.
Earlier this month, the Pentagon quietly dispatched 400 Marines to northern Syria to operate artillery in support of Syrian militias that are cooperating in the fight against Islamic State, according to U.S. officials. That was the first use of U.S. Marines in that country since its long civil war began.
In Iraq, nearly 300 Army paratroopers were deployed recently to help the Iraqi military in their six-month assault on the city of Mosul, according to U.S. officials.
Neither of those deployments was announced once they had been made, a departure from the practice of the Obama administration, which announced nearly all conventional force deployments.
