Two days later Donald has another idea.
Medicynical note: Aside from the obvious ad hoc thoughtless nature of his policy decisions, Trump’s policies are not designed to do much of anything except serve monied interests.

They literally pay almost no income taxes ( https://psmag.com/economics/tax-bill-oil-company-bonanza) in the US and essentially get the services of the US government and in this case the US military for free. What a deal.
