One of Trump’s biggest pet peeves as both a private citizen and as our president was the forever wars our country has been involved in.
Trump also believed there was an excessive deployment of troops around the globe that were more or less serving as police for the entire world rather than protecting our interests and to add injury to insult, many of these countries were not paying their fair share.
Joe Biden and many other politicians in office do not see it that way.
Keep Them There
Many of our troops abroad thought they were coming home and they would be if Trump were still in office.
With Joe in office, however, it will probably go back to business as usual in terms of our military, meaning forever wars and global deployments with the bill being footed by the American taxpayer.
To that point, Biden has just ordered a freeze to the troop withdrawal in Germany.
He has also ordered a global review of our military operations.

The reasoning behind the initial troop withdrawal was Trump being upset with Germany regarding its contribution to NATO.
In July, Trump ordered the 11,900 troops that were placed in Germany to be redeployed throughout Europe or returned to home soil.
At the time, Trump stated, “We don’t want to be the suckers anymore.
“The United States has been taken advantage of for 25 years, both on trade and on the military.
“We’re protecting Germany, so we’re reducing the force because they’re not paying the bills.
“It’s very simple. They’re delinquent. So we’re reducing the force.
“Now if they start paying their bills… I would think about it.”
Don’t expect such a tough stance by Biden, because he will probably be giving away as many freebies globally as he plans on doing here in the United States.
Freebies, by the way, that are going to cost American taxpayers dearly.
