Trump Wanted To Shut Down All Embassies In Africa : Former US Defence Secretary, Mark Esper Says

Published

on

Former US President Donald Trump wanted to close all American embassies in Africa, according to former US Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s new book.

A Sacred Oath: Memoirs of a Secretary of Defense, excerpted from Esper’s memoir, Extraordinary Times, published on Monday, May 9, details a number of ‘outlandish’ proposals his former boss was willing to make, including withdrawing the US military from South Korea, withdrawing diplomatic personnel from Africa, and eagerness to meet with the Taliban, which the ex-president believed would ‘cast him as an extraordinary diplomat and businessman.’

The meeting was called off after a car bomb in Kabul on September 5 killed 12 people, including one American service member.

‘Some of the things he was proposing were outlandish,’ Esper wrote of Trump, such as a “complete withdrawal of US forces from South Korea” or the withdrawal of all military and diplomatic personnel from Africa.

‘Shut down the embassies in Africa’ and ‘bring our people [US diplomats] back home.’ Esper claims Trump said.

He also stated that Trump was ‘irritated’ by his response.

During a discussion about the flow of immigrants to the US in 2018, Trump infamously referred to African nations and Haiti as “s***hole countries.”

In his book, Esper describes an August 30, 2019 White House Situation Room meeting during which then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo outlined a “final plan” for a peace deal with the Taliban to end the Afghan war.

‘Trump then caught everyone by surprise by declaring, “I want to meet with the Taliban” here in Washington. We all sat there stunned for a moment, carefully looking around at one another, and then at him to see if the president was serious. He was,’ the former defense secretary writes.

‘None of us liked this idea. As the president went around the room, we each tried to dissuade him in different ways,’ Esper says.

‘Trump stated that he wanted any public statement about the peace deal to state that the US would be at “zero [troops] in October” 2020, just before the election. He viewed the agreement through the lens of Nov. 3, 2020. ‘It was a significant takeaway for me,’ Esper says.

He also claims Trump reiterated his tired claim that ‘NATO is ripping us off.’

He described how Trump told him about his first meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, during which she asked him, ‘What are you going to do about Ukraine?’

‘In his view, Germany was “closer to Ukraine than we are,” and it’s a “big buffer” for the Germans against Russia. “They should be paying Ukraine more than anyone,” he proclaimed,’ Esper recalls.

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
