President Trump on this morning’s edition of Face the Nation:
North Korean leader ‘is a pretty smart cookie.’
Trump’s reckless choice of words and damaged ego will lead this world into a very hostile confrontation with North Korea. This administration has made a shamingly lazy attempt at diplomacy with Pyongyang.
POTUS will send NATO allies into another frenzy-like naive war, mirroring Bush 43’s campaign on destabilizing Hussein’s regime through a ground invasion in Iraq.
This also forces China into a tight corner. Do they assist North Korea by conceding to cultural comraderie, or side with the West, subsequently protecting their economic assets?
It is strange that North Korea has suddenly become such a priority for this administration.
This is a bipolar White House. With an absolutely murky vision for the next four years.
Trump has not had a successful first 100 days.
Sadly, for the rest of us, there are 1360 days still to go.
