Tom King, Batman Writer and Former CIA Officer, Addresses Donald Trump Over 9/11

Tom King is the current writer on DC Comics' Batman comic. He is writing the New Gods movie for Warner Bros, has recently come off on DC's big 2019 event Heroes In Crisis, wrote the award-winning Mister Miracle for DC and The Vision for Marvel and now has Strange Adventures lined up from DC, which he has stated is about Donald Trump.

He is also a former CIA Officer who worked in Iraq and Afghanistan on behalf of the US government. And yesterday, as Donald Trump tweeted in memory of the events of September 11th, 2001, he had his own take on the President's words, in light of news that Trump had been planning to host the Taliban at Camp David this week, for talks regarding the future of Afghanistan.

Tom King tweeted,

Trump may not have seen the quote-tweet of course, but it went a little viral anyway. And  a few comic book professionals had their own thoughts in response.
