In a letter to the American people explaining the progress he believes the nation has made under his leadership, President Barack Obama said today that “almost” the entire planet believes this nation has become stronger and more respected during his time in office.

“And almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago,” Obama said in his letter.

In making his case for this, Obama cited among other things what he believes to be the nation’s progress in Iraq and Afghanistan and in “breaking the back” of the Islamic State, and also the Iran nuclear deal, the opening of relations with the Communist government in Cuba and a global “climate agreement” that he believes “could save this planet for our kids.”

“We’ve drawn down from nearly 180,000 troops in harm’s way in Iraq and Afghanistan to just 15,000,” Obama wrote. “With a coalition of more than 70 nations and a relentless campaign of more than 16,000 airstrikes so far, we are breaking the back of ISIL and taking away its safe havens, and we’ve accomplished this at a cost of $10 billion over two years — the same amount that we spent in one month at the height of the Iraq War.”

    Delusional Obama is the laughing stock of the planet. We are less respected now than ever in the history of our country after 8 years of Obama. We have become a joke to the world. Most lost all hope while he has been in office with his divisive derision, racism, terrorist traitorist treasonous stunts, ignoring law, his corruption and constant drama, lies, aggression and false flags. Our country and the world has become less safe under his rule. The worst president we have ever had. Everything he did was for the cabal and the muslims.
