Forget about the WWE, if you want a real-time feud these days, just turn on the news and chances are you will hear about the latest war of words between President Trump and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. Both men have very unique, stubborn personalities and this feud will intensify in the upcoming weeks. Unfortunately for this country, it may mean military action against a leader who has basically stuck his middle finger out against the world. Finally, there is a leader who is willing to stand up to him and how this feud will end is anyone’s guess. One thing is for certain, Kim Jong Un is a very dangerous man and the world might be a better place without him in power.
One of the scary things about this whole story is the fact that some nut case like Kim Jong Un has the capability to have nuclear weapons and this fact should send shivers to anyone living in this country or any ally of the United States. There are probably several other rogue leaders who would not think twice about sending some missile our way which could cause massive casualties. The fact that leaders of these rogue nations have that capability is very concerning to say the least. In the near future, those capabilities will only get stronger as well as our risk of being attacked.
Some people claim that President Trump should tone down his rhetoric towards North Korea and Kim Jong Un. I completely disagree. It is refreshing to finally see our President take a harsh stand against one of our biggest enemies. A strong leader will stand up for us and our allies when some head case wants to do harm to innocent people. Why people are outraged over his statements is simply appalling. Leading from the front is what we should expect from our nation. Former President Ronald Reagan was the same way. He was not afraid to confront our enemies and our country was safer because of it.
I also find it ridiculous to be extremely concerned whether Trump has the mental capacity to handle this foreign crisis. Not only does he, but his team of advisors is very experienced and knowledgeable in foreign affairs. I have the utmost confidence in this group of people in making good and wise decisions in the best interests of the nation and world.
North Korea and Kim Jong Un has been a problem for far too long and it is time for him to face the music. We cannot tolerate his evil and disrespectful ways any longer. I have to give the Trump administration credit for trying to do a job other administrations have by-passed. North Korea is a problem that has to be dealt with now before it is too late.
Unless you have been in a terrible coma for the past couple of years, you might have noticed that our newly elected president loves to tweet. President Barack Obama had a Twitter account, but the frequency of his tweets paled in comparison to President Trump. The question I have is this; is it a good idea for a President or any politician to engage heavily on Twitter? There are varying opinions on this topic and I will share a few myself.
Part of being a good politician is getting your message out to the public. With so many people using Twitter these days, you would think that it would be wise for a lawmaker to use Twitter to persuade the public on a particular issue. For example, a lawmaker can make a short, but very compelling case on why we need to repeal Obamacare. An account with Trump’s popular can reach millions of people with just a quick send button.
On the other hand, I find it rather difficult to articulate a view with only 140 characters allowed. Sure you can send multiple tweets on a particular topic, but I find it very hard to uphold any type of good conversation when I am limited. Perhaps a blog post might be a better idea for the President. On top of that, Twitter is filled with a bunch of wackos who will not think twice about sending you some mean and ignorant tweets. I would think that the President has better things to do with his time than getting involved in a Twitter war.
It is no secret that many media figures do not like President Trump and will do anything to discredit his achievements. Having the option to reply back at his critics is a wonderful way for him to use Twitter and you might say, set the record straight. Yes, there are times when I think Trump should be above some of the cheap shots that delivered to him, but I admire him for fighting back at some of ridiculous things that are said and written about him.
Having said all these things, I do think eventually that his Twitter use could get him in deep trouble some day. And that goes for any politician who uses Twitter regularly. Anyone who uses Twitter probably has had those moments where you send a tweet that you wish you had not. Many famous athletes and politicians have gotten into huge trouble from what they have said on Twitter. Furthermore, I would expect my President to show some class in his or her tweets instead of sending juvenile tweets about how stupid a certain news anchor might be or how fat a celebrity critic of his may be. You are expected to uphold the office with some dignity and some of Trumps tweets have crossed the line, no doubt about it.
President Trump’s twitter account is one of many politicians that I follow from both sides. I think it is a very useful tool that can help him out in achieving his agenda. How there is a great risk involved and hopefully President Trump will be wise enough to understand that there are many vultures out there just waiting for him to send that one regrettable tweet.
It was the testimony that everyone was waiting for especially those many Trump haters. The recently fired FBI director James Comey was set to give his testimony before a Senate Intelligence Committee. Could this be the moment when President Trump is exposed for several wrong doings? Cable news stations had countdown clocks in anticipation of probably the biggest high-profile testimony of any government official in many years. Millions skipped work and crowded local bars for this event of a lifetime. In the end, I think many regretted skipping work. The testimony revealed little that we had not already known.
There is little doubt in my mind that many media outlets came out of this hearing rather disappointed. They were banking on seeing some explosive testimony indicting Trump. Imagine if that had occurred? CNN, The New York Times and the Washington Post would have a field day. It would further vindicate their claims that this election was not a legitimate one and Trump has no business being the President of this country. The same can be said of the many folks in this country affected with TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). A damning testimony by Comey could have further enhanced their claims that the election was rigged.
Unfortunately for these folks, nothing that was revealed really hurt President Trump. In fact, this testimony may eventually come back to haunt a few Democrats and Comey instead. His admission that he leaked important information could lead to his own investigation. Furthermore, the former Attorney General, Loretta Lynch’s request to downplay the handling of Hillary Clinton’s alleged dealings with classified information seems to fall in line with what Trump was requesting for Michael Flynn. How can you in good faith investigate the dealings of Trump and Flynn without equally pursuing any ties between Lynch and the Clinton campaign? It seems to me that this hearing opened up a whole new can or worms that anti-Trump fans did not bargain for. Why the double standards?
Just maybe in the near future, this ridiculous notion that the Russians colluded with President Trump to helped him win the election will go away and Trump can proceed with his agenda for helping this country. There is absolutely no evidence at this time that any collusion took place. It is time to move on and maybe this hearing will eliminate any doubts that some people may have. However, I highly doubt it. Talk of Russia and Trump colluding in this election will be a topic that will never go away. Trump won the election fair and square. I hope people will finally accept that fact some day.
