The Trump Administration has carried out a response to recent chemical bombing of the Syrian people by its government with no clear plan or Congressional approval, but what else is new. This Administration has neglected to appoint Senior Ambassadors to many of our allies Countries and enemies alike. There is no clear direction as to policy or rules of engagement in Syria as two weeks ago Trump announced that he was going to bring American troops home from Syria soon; and then he bombs the country with no foreign policy change or direction.
The State Department is without a head as many Agencies and Departments are. The State Department has no other spokesmen to deliver America’s diplomatic positions yet we are on a precipice of war with North Korea, on the edge of a confrontation with Russia, Iran and Syria; fighting ISIS throughout the region, and again no one to lead for America but Donald Trump and his tweets. The National Security Council is the acting State Department with the pending appointment of one of the country’s biggest war hawks as its new head. Leaving the military option as the only negotiating point for the USA in the Middle East and around the world.
Trump seems to believe that “only he knows how to fix the problems of the world”. His son in-law Jared Kushner was hand picked by him to solve the Israeli/Palestinian crisis, but now he is under scrutiny by the Special Council. His Attorney General has removed himself from the Russian investigation arguably the most important investigation the Country has faced since Watergate. He has recently fired his National Security Head that leaves Trump the sole negotiator for the Country with South Korea, probably the worst-case scenario for the country, as he has no knowledge of how diplomacy works in International affairs.
The bottom line is this; the Country is truly in the hands of what most have come to believe to be the most incompetent President the Country has ever had. His potential meeting with the equally crazy leader of North Korea may very well push us closer to war or push us back 20 years in diplomacy. Donald Trump and his original Special Advisor vowed to shack up our Government and bring it down; unfortunately he is close to accomplishing that.
He promised to drain the swamp of Washington insiders and has replaced them with Wall Street Insiders and political hacks that will say yes to anything Trump proposes. The world is at its most sensitive level since the end of Vietnam and the Gulf Wars and we are left with Donald Trump to lead the Free World. We all need to pray for this President to do the right thing and become a true leader of the country and somehow act Presidential in the vein of an Obama, Clinton, Bush or Carter.
But I’m Just Saying!
