Let’s look at how Barack Obama negotiated: With the nuclear agreement with Iran, we knew all along that he favored the Mullahs and would give them everything they demanded with no negotiations necessary, plus our Barry threw in a cargo plane full of various nations’ currencies to sweeten the deal. And when it came to military matters, Obama always told ISIS what he was going to do and when he was going to do it, which allowed them to be somewhere else when the attack did occur, if indeed it occurred at all, which made the attack a waste of time and money. But I suppose the liberal press thought that Obama was magnificent in his decisiveness, even if his military advisors were against this method and even though Obama’s results, after eight years of fighting one war after another, was a total failure.
President Trump keeps his adversaries off balance by announcing plans pro and con on any issue and stating that he will go one way on Monday and another way on Wednesday, and pretending to not even care about the subject on Friday. It’s the way Trump operates, and so far he’s accomplished much with that approach. But the anti-Trump hecklers in the press chalk up such maneuvers to his being weak and indecisive, and they couldn’t be more mistaken.
Just look at what President Trump’s rhetoric has produced: After making the conflicting statements about NAFTA listed above, yesterday (Thursday) the leaders of both Mexico and Canada called and appealed to him to not wash his hands of NAFTA and asked to begin negotiations with them soon. Members of the anti-Trump press phrased this sudden turn of evens with Mexico and Canada with phrases like “Donald Trump admits he backed down” and “Trump agrees to negotiate with Canada and Mexico--for now”, when the actual truth is that Trump holds the winning hand over both nations and now they are likely to negotiate with him on a fair and level basis in which America can win for a change. And on military matters, Trump got world acclaim for his missile attack on Syria, and China is making inroads in getting North Korea to halt their nuclear program and stop testing explosive devices and delivery missiles designed to hit California and Hawaii.
Donald Trump’s successful and proven negotiating skills are winners, where, by contrast, the long-standing Washington establishment’s “Statecraft” has proven itself to be a loser because it’s too slow, allows our enemies to gain favorable positions to our disadvantage and has measurably hurt America over the last twenty years or so, and this must change.
