There’s a big difference between the two.
Critics suggest it is ridiculous to question the idea that defending Montenegro via the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is necessary to keep America safe. They’re wrong.
‘The Human Rights Council has provided cover not condemnation for authoritarian regimes,’ the UN ambassador said.
The most important thing Americans and our government can do about the reality that Russia tried to interfere in our election is remain calm.
Trump’s supporters will forgive the president’s blunders if his actions bear the results he’s promising. In the meantime, Trump’s critics don’t need to make up or exaggerate the mistakes he’s made.
Although Trump’s incredible statements at the press conference were irresponsible, naïve, and even dangerous, they do not reflect current U.S. policy toward Russia. And that’s a very good thing.
Whether you like Trump or not, whether you like NATO or not, it’s time to face all the ugly truths we have long avoided facing, because foreign policy is about to change in a very serious way.
Today the president let Vladimir Putin save too much face, which could delay improvement in U.S.-Russia relations.
The old willingness to ‘pay any price, bear any burden’ is waning. There is no reason we should subsidize others’ luxuries, let alone when we have so many problems at home.
If you don’t like the messenger or how he messages, fine, but don’t miss the real issue: Does NATO as it is functioning require a bit of scrutiny and reform? Obviously so.
We’ve seen the cycle happen too many times. Every administration thinks they know how to deal with North Korea — yet they too end up fooled.
President Trump’s grievances about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are not his, not new, and definitely not influenced by the 2016 election or Russia.
The real danger isn’t that Mexico elected a left-wing populist as president, it’s that the new president won’t be able to govern his country.
The Obama administration sought to use the weight of the federal government to pressure U.S. banks into colluding with a terrorist state. The banks had more integrity than that.
Withdrawing from the council and defunding its activities makes the point that the United States will not be held hostage by the lowest common denominator at the United Nations.
President Trump wants a ‘historic’ deal to make him look like a great leader—exactly the mistake previous presidents made in negotiating with North Korea.
Compare the dialogue between the two leaders now to six months ago, when many feared we were headed for all-out war.
