Trump Ends Reporting Requirement of Civilian Deaths from U.S. Drones | Democracy Now!

President Trump revoked a rule Wednesday requiring that the director of national intelligence report annually on civilians killed by U.S. drone strikes outside of official war zones. The Trump administration was already in violation of the reporting requirement, which the White House ignored as a deadline came and went last May. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reports President Trump has further accelerated the U.S. drone assassination program, with over 2,200 drone strikes during Trump’s first two years in office—more strikes than occurred over eight years under President Obama.
