Back in 2016, when President Trump was the GOP presidential nominee, then eventually elected to be the 45th president of the United States, I was not overly dramatic about where his presidency could take this country. Of course, since January of this year, it has been quite interesting, to say the least. From his first 100 days until now, we have seen Trump theater full-throttle with the mainstream media playing a variety of characters (from supporting cast to antagonist).
Although some persons in the media have not been completely fair and bias-free in their reporting of Trump, the Commander-in-Chief has also not done himself any favors with the name-calling that he has posted through social media.
This kind of behavior may have worked while he was on the road campaigning, but it does not keep things peaceful, especially when you are dealing with a dictator bent on building up his country’s nuclear weapon capabilities. It is more than risky. Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker, who is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, believes that Trump could set our country up to be on course for another world war. Plus, it would seem to be counter-intuitive to undermine your own Secretary of State with tweets like below:
How could it be logical to insult a dictator that would be behind the killing of his own family members?
Trump may should think of taking up former President Jimmy Carter’s offer of meeting with North Korea. Carter actual has the credentials to possibly get the job done.
