War Crime Charges:

  • The Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court defines the following as war crimes: willful killing; willfully causing great suffering or serious injury; intentional attacks against civilians or civilian objects; and intentionally launching unjustified attacks, knowing they will kill or injure civilians.
  • According to data gathered by Airwars, U.S.-led efforts against ISIS have resulted in more civilian casualties during seven months of the Trump administration than 29 months under Obama.
  • Trump has dropped some limits on drone strikes and eased combat rules that are in place to protect civilians.
  • An air strike in Mosul in March of 2017 killed up to 200 civilians.
  • There has also been less transparency when it comes to air attacks on Afghanistan. Since October 2017 there hasn’t been a release of monthly air strike figures, while the air war continues to escalate.
  • “The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families,” Trump said in December 2015. “They care about their lives, don't kid yourself. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families.”
  • The United Nations Charter, Article 51 about self-defense states that there must be “a necessity of self-defense, instant, overwhelming, leaving no choice or means, and no moment of deliberation.” The UN charter also prohibits threats and preemptive use of force.
  • Threatened to “totally destroy North Korea.” If carried out, this threat would amount to genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes of collective punishment, and would violate the principles of proportionality and distinction.

  • The Trump Organization, which is a holding company for all of its business ventures, including Trump Golf, Trump Hotels, Trump International Realty, and Trump Winery.  It also “lists involvement in 515 subsidiaries and entities with 264 of them bearing Trump's name and another 54 including his initials.”
