President Donald Trump has made another unprecedented move on foreign policy that should be applauded by everyone from all corners of the political universe. This is true despite the din of blathering leftists all across the echo-chamber-media. Trump has been able to push, pull and Tweet his way to a summit with Kim Jong-Un the dictator of North Korea.
At first the naysayers chirped that Trump was out of control and had America on a sure path to nuclear war with the North when he chided Kim as ‘Little Rocket Man’. They went crazy when he Tweeted at Kim that he had a ‘bigger button’ and our nuclear weapons actually work.
The left was knocked sideways when Kim unexpectedly offered President Trump a summit back in March. Trump shocked them all when he accepted. Despite the surprise and the change of tactics the critics remained dedicated to their verbal They pointed out how many times North Korea has pulled a fast one with The United States and said unequivocally Trump was not prepared for such serious conversations.
Apparently those outside of The White House failed to understand that this effort began before Trump took the oath of office. The President was told from the beginning that North Korea would be his biggest challenge on the world stage. With that in mind he has been focused on this effort from the start. The addition of Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State has also been a huge boost to the efforts that are being undertaken. Rex Tillerson would not have been able to close this deal but Pompeo is clearly the right man for the job.
However all of these advances that could finally bring about an actual peace agreement that has been out of reach since 1953 are either ignored or drowned in a sea of criticism. The left also ignores the real possibility that nuclear weapons could be removed from the Korean Peninsula.
You have to ask yourself why? The answer is fairly straightforward from what I can tell.
There are clearly those on the #NeverTrump bandwagon that are simply genetically incapable of finding anything but fault with everything the President does. If Donald Trump found a cure for cancer his loudest critics would point out how many in the health care field would lose their jobs because of it. If Trump said it was lunchtime his critics would cry about his indifference to those that are going to bed hungry. Such is the state of politics today.
No matter the ongoing and relentless attacks on this President for not being like other Presidents (which by the way is the point) Trump continues to plow forward with a successful approach to a variety of issues that have left previous
administrations stymied. I don’t expect that to change but I do expect Trump to get everything he wants out of North Korea.
Right now the clock is counting down to the historical first hand shake between Trump and Kim and I have to wonder how the left will find fault with that?
