Trump’s amazing foreign policy victories
I have to confess that, even though I’m a Trump supporter, I’m surprised by the effectiveness of Trump’s foreign policy, even though he’s not yet officially the President.
1. Obama, who hates Israel, instructed his U.N. ambassador to abstain on a Security Council resolution, sponsored by Egypt, that condemns Israel for expanding settlements in places that anger the Palestinians.
So Trump intercedes, speaks on the telephone with Sisi, the President of Egypt, and then Egypt withdraws the resolution.
2. After Russia talks about increasing it’s nuclear forces, Trump tweets that the “United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability.” And then today, as summarized by Reuters:
Russia’s Vladimir Putin said on Friday he was unfazed by President-elect Donald Trump’s plans to boost the U.S. nuclear arsenal, praising Trump for being in touch with U.S. public opinion while branding the Democrats sore election losers.
Speaking at his annual news conference in Moscow, the Russian president said earlier comments he had made about his country’s own military modernization had been misunderstood in the United States and that he accepted that the U.S. military, not Russia’s, was the most powerful in the world.
