Trump’s hands-off approach — allowing battlefield commanders to take daily decisions affecting US foreign policy and national security — is a major shift in the American way of war. The Pentagon now does not require the president’s sign-off when military commanders believe an action is necessary. That’s potentially good news for generals who felt hamstrung by the Obama administration.

“What I do is I authorize my military. We have the greatest military in the world, and they’ve done the job, as usual. We have given them total authorization, and that’s what they’re doing. Frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.”

In other words, Trump doesn’t feel he needs to be looped in on life-or-death military decisions. He’s purposefully leaving that up to commanders fighting on behalf of the United States.

In fact, after a press conference last Friday featuring Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, and head of the anti-ISIS coalition Brett McGurk, a senior US military official labeled Trump’s strategy against ISIS as “delegate and annihilate,” reports Department of Defense.

“Under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble, reduced to a point where it is embarrassing for our country,” Trump said in front of a room of veterans and active-duty service members.

President George W. Bush spoke with his military commander in Iraq nearly every week.

President Barack Obama was so deeply involved in military operations that his first three Defense secretaries all complained, sometimes bitterly, about what they considered White House micromanagement.

Since day 1 in office, President Donald Trump has yet to meet or speak with either his Iraq or Afghanistan commander, even as his administration weighs deeper and longer-term involvement in both conflicts and asks Congress for a vast increase in defense spending.

Trump’s hands-off approach to America’s longest wars demonstrates how much control his administration has entrusted to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a retired four-star Marine general, and commanders on the ground.

The Pentagon and military, often exasperated and frustrated under Obama’s ego and micro-centralized decision-making have welcomed the shift, saying it has freed them to carry out operations based on military, and not political, considerations.

The president already has granted Mattis authority to raise troop levels in the wars in Iraq and Syria, a power usually held closely by the White House.

POTUS Trump also has authorized his commanders to move more aggressively against militants in Somalia and Yemen, where U.S. special operations forces have stepped up raids against Islamic State and other terrorist groups.
