Donald Trump is desperate to talk about anything other than the massive scandals surrounding him at the moment. Michael Cohen, Robert Mueller, emoluments, Russian collusion, terrible poll numbers…Trump would do just about anything to make it all go away, including ranting about any other subject with non-stop lies because he doesn’t understand those subjects and he hopes his supporters won’t, either.
Trump’s foreign policy is Fox News based and Fox News approved. All of the talk of ISIS and how out of control they were under President Obama is just a natural extension of all the talk of how Obama was a Muslim sent to destroy America. ISIS was not out of control and had been largely dealt with, but saying that would have proved Trump and Fox News wrong about Obama’s “secret Muslim ties,” so the lie must be extended even with endless evidence to the contrary.
North Korea is not close to denuclearization. After Trump’s photo op with Kim Jong Un, he insisted that this was true and satellite photos proved that the North Koreans were still developing bombs. Iran, on the other hand, really was at a point of denuclearization when Trump stepped in and ended the Iran Deal, not because they had failed to keep the promises they gave President Obama, but because he told his Fox News viewing fanbase that he’d undo everything Obama ever did, even if it destroyed the country.
Wednesday Morning’s Trump Foreign Policy 101 lesson is sure to go over well with the intelligence community. Perhaps they should send Trump back to school.
Twitter wasn’t buying any of it, either. Read some of their comments below:
