Imagine if it were Putin, Xi, Kim, Bin Laden, Hussein etc that said it.

Imagine if someone said they could kill 10s of millions of Americans in a couple of days....

Imagine if...

I already have. I think Kim Jong-un’s sound-and-light spectacles of a mushroom cloud over NYC qualify...

Kim wanted attention and he got it. I interpret Trump’s comment the same way. He may have got the Taliban’s attention though I don’t think much will come of it. Afghanistan has always been a last-man-standing game.

LOL!

For the first time in over a 100 years, a US president hasn't been called or considered "The Leader of the Free World".

Trump's twisted truth-telling is his novel political calling card: telling it just like it is, knowing that, as POTUS (and unlike Hitler et al.), he would never be brought to justice for any number of war crimes . Now THAT's power, innit?!

Donny didn't have the stomach to kill a couple hundred Iranians. Why should we believe him about being able to kill millions?

Hell, no rational adult believes anything that comes from Donny's pie hole.

Typical fake news spin. I heard what he said. He meant he could (and its no lie) finish this war in a week, but it would result in the deaths of millions. Instead he has other more humane plans. I mean, the US could of used more "humane" means to end the war with Japan, but instead Truman used the atomic bomb, in order to save US lives. The US has lost how many lives in Afghan now? Trump is just showing frustration with this mess that previous moronic leadership got the US into.

Why would the leader of any country but especially America issue such a violent and aggressive statement,

We all know it more than enough nuclear weapons to destroy the entire planet.

Trump issues threat to kill ten of millions of men, women, children, babies.

The commander-in-chief is so brave.

Same guy who a couple of weeks ago didn’t want to kill 150 Iranians.

How much more evidence is needed that Trump is a warmonger? This is the nation that considers its self the beacon of democracy. This is the nation that Pompeo wants the world to trust.

Arrogantis Maximus shoots his big yap again. Treasontrump thinks he's a god. He is acting like a juvenile again and is not even fit to run a roach motel. Make America Great Again - by killing millions, spoken from a modern Hitler himself! I am disgusted and ashamed of this sick demagogue. When will the world wake up?

"I'm not looking to kill 10 million people." From a draft dodger, who would be hiding in the pentagon bunker while sending the troops to kill and die.

I think we must seriously question the mental balance and state of mind of this president.

No foreign nation has won a war against Afghanistan. None! British/Russian/American have all been defeated.

Afghanistan was the Soviet Union's 'Vietnam'. They accomplished nothing from it and they left 30 years ago. And after the Afghan rebels overthrew and killed their Communist puppet leader in 1992 then anarchy broke out, like in Somalia. There's too many social, historical, economical, etc. for outsiders to solve at that place - never mind the geographic location amidst the mountains, deserts and all.

It goes back even further in history. The Romans, Persians, Chinese empires have bordered, encroached and contested this region too.

First of all, Trump is an idiot to think that mass extermination would count as winning. The U.S. is not at war with Afghanistan. It is at war with the Taliban.

Stupid, stupid man.

Stupid stupid people if they believe him. Treasontrump talks Hitler bullytalk like an uncouth child because he is one. That so-called Mother Of All Bombs (MOAB) was supposed to have taken care of the Taliban, remember? And we don't hear about ISIL much at all, do we? Oh, Donnie says that ISIL is defeated but the US Army Times magazine states that contrary to what Trump says, the forces haven't moved one cm out of Syrian territory.

Welcome to Oceana, 2019.

Trump again put his words first before thinking about them or he is just plain stupid or both. When people ask me "what country do you come from", I am embarrassed to say the USA. Why, because the USA was at one time a shining light in a dark world but it has lost that status and we look like reality TV idiots.

He just ordered a draw-down of troops in Afghanistan. Oops.
