After just over a year in office, President Trump has clearly established a foreign policy predicated on America’s national interest and the assertion of American power.
China has made clear that it has its own agenda and will pursue its objectives aggressively, regardless of what others think. So much for all the post-Cold War optimism about changing China’s behavior.
By any stretch of the imagination, the most pro-American people in the Middle East – other than Israelis – are Iranians.
As President Trump’s first year in office comes to a close, media hysteria about the grave harm he will cause to the nation and the world continues unabated – even though predictions of disaster he would supposedly cause in the past year never came to pass.
With the release of his National Security Strategy report this week, it is obvious that President Trump has a handle on “realism” and a belief – justified in my view – that the world is an increasingly dangerous place.
