All people throughout the world had come to understand that politicians would make grave pronouncements and then adjust those pronouncements by adjusting the time, the amount of money, or just backing down. We saw this time after time during the budget crisis of countries in the European Union, especially Greece. Greece was told they must conform and adhere to the budget demands of the European Union only to have the terms of the demand by the EU changed or adjusted by the World Bank and other large banks. We saw it with Obama drawing his line in the sand only to completely back away from his threat and open the door for Russia to become the strong player in the Middle East. Obama used the same tough language when discussing Iran only to not only give Iran what they demanded to sign a one-sided agreement in their favor but made suggestions to the Iranians on how they could have an even more favorable agreement than what they had originally said they wanted.
Ronald Reagan was an exception to the rule and the press criticized Reagan when he refused to play the game that was the norm in the political world. Reagan insisted on “trust by verify” and because the world quickly learned that Reagan was different from the political norm, his policies brought down the Soviet empire. Israel has also been a nation that means what they say and say what they mean. The political left has strongly criticized Israel for doing exactly what they say they will do, but if Israel did not the political left would have exactly what they want; a world with no Israel.
Now the world has learned there is a new type of President in the White House. No longer does the occupant of the White House apologize for the Untied States, make statements he will not enforce, or encourage anybody and everybody, mostly those who want to destroy the United States, to come into our country illegally. Even though President Trump has his hands tied when it comes to protecting the citizens of the United States regarding our lack of meaningful immigration policies, he has done a great job even though his tools are greatly limited.
A very important part of Trump’s strategy to protect the American public from our enemies coming across our border illegally is that he has highlighted the fact that the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are openly encouraging those people who despise the principles of freedom protected by our Constitution and hate America as much as do the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), to come into the United States any way they can. We see a large number of people marching toward our border now. Many of these people represent groups like ISIS that hate the Untied States. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are supporting and encouraging this movement.
President Trump had early stated to the Central American countries that this action is not acceptable. The Central American countries paid no heed, apparently thinking that Obama was still in the White House. These Central American countries are learning that a typical politician was not elected to be President of the United States in 2017.
President Trump declared that the U.S. will start blocking federal aid to Central American countries for failing to contain the migrant caravan. In a recent tweet, the president said Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and illegally coming to the U.S so the U.S. will now begin cutting off or substantially reducing the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.
It is also reported that the military is being readied to go to the border to protect the sovereignty of the Untied States and the citizens of the United States. Indeed, Obama is no longer in the White House and Hilary Clinton calls a place in New York home. Perhaps Theresa May should look across the Ocean and take the actions of President Trump as an example for her in implementing Brexit. Great Britain would be free from the entanglement that is the European Union and would have left on very favorable terms.
Thank you, President Trump, for saying what you mean and then acting in accordance. It is so refreshing.
