How Does Trumpie Deal with Foreign Crises? Ans: He Doesn’t

Thinks He can Talk and Bluster His Way Out of Them

Britain’s brutal encounter with reality

What does the current President do when foreign policy starts to dominate?   Well there is the problem of ISIS, especially after fresh attacks.  So here’ what he says.

Mr. Trump condemned the attacks as he stood next to King Abdullah II of Jordan in the Rose Garden, where he pledged to work with Jordan and other allies in the Middle East to defeat the Islamic State.

“We are both leaders on that,” Mr. Trump said, adding that “it will be a shorter fight than a lot of people are thinking about, believe me.”

Well gosh, if it’s going to be so short, let’s get on with it.  People are dying.  And here’s a quick note to the Bluffer in Chief, we would be much more willing to ‘believe me’ if you actually did something.

And then there’s the horrific chemical assault by Syria’s President Assad on his own people.  What does the Prez do about that?  Oh, he shifts the blame.

Speaking briefly to reporters on Wednesday before the news conference, Mr. Trump said that “these are very troubled times in the Middle East.” He continued: “And we see what happened just recently, yesterday, in Syria. Horrible. Horrible thing. Unspeakable.”

Earlier, Mr. Trump had laid the blame for the incident on President Barack Obama, saying that the attack was the result of Mr. Obama’s failure to follow through on military threats after Syria’s use of chemical weapons in 2013.

When pressed about it the Blubberer said

On Wednesday, Mr. Trump declined to elaborate on his own policy for responding to the attacks.

“You’ll see,” he said.

Ok, maybe sometime in this decade would be nice.

North Korea continues to be a threat, and to listen to the President one would think the administration  has a plan.

Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson issued a short statement after the test, saying bluntly: “The United States has spoken enough about North Korea. We have no further comment.”

Turns out, they don’t, just like Indiana Jones, they are making it up as they go along.
