No Credit Ever For Trump
In the media, especially dominant CNN, Donald Trump gets no points for his historic breakthrough with North Korea... Instead he is accused of abetting our enemies, and abandoning our allies. Never mind that the North Korea breakthrough involved significantly reducing the threat of nuclear war, while the discord in Canada deals with the price of diary products. Never mind that both actions were calculated to put United States first.
Not giving Trump any credit is even fashionable in the Republican Party. The party hierarchy has taken a wait and see attitude. Needless to say, the Democrats are outright hostile... "President Trump has granted a brutal and repressive dictatorship the international legitimacy it has long craved," proclaimed Chuck Schumer.
Trump will remain politically a populist outsider. He can govern without being embraced by his Party. How the Party will fare remains to be seen.
