Per CNN (not someone we usually use here):
When US forces dropped the military’s biggest non-nuclear bomb on Afghanistan, President Donald Trump described it as “another successful job.” Better known as the “mother of all bombs,” the weapon is officially known as the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB). On Thursday, it was dropped on a system of tunnels and caves used by ISIS forces in Nangarhar province, northeastern Afghanistan. The bomb is 30 feet long, weighs 21,600 pounds and is packed with 18,000 pounds of explosives.
The Trump administration has showed that they are much quicker to the draw when it comes to bombing ISIS. As Trump said, he was going to “bomb the sh*t out of ’em.” Another area where Trump is living up to the promises he made in the campaign trail.
