America has learned during Trump’s four very long months in office that he is easily manipulated. Outsmarting Trump is easy; simply praise him and make him feel ‘special.’ This is how any mentally challenged person is controlled. The Saudis proved this to be true this weekend as they offered Trump extraordinary ceremony never granted to their closest friends, including the Bush family. In turn Trump signed an undisclosed “deal” which includes arms sales which will likely be used to fight the rebels in Yemen opposing Saudi Arabia.
Trump’s speech pandered to the world’s largest Muslim nation. In a display of typical Republican hypocrisy, Trump ignored his plan to refuse Muslims entry into the United States. I doubt if Trump knows that 15 or the 19 terrorists who attacked our nation on September 11, 2001 were Saudi nationals.
He is now in Israel. Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu is a master at controlling persons such as Trump. Trump has already shown both his ignorance and the fact that he has underestimated Netanyahu. The Israeli Prime Minister will continue his refusal to negotiate with Palestinian leaders. Trump will support him completely if Netanyahu tells him that he is ‘doing a good job.’ Lying always works with Donny boy.
This entire trip will be a waste of time and money for the American people. Trump will pander to everyone and follow his pattern of accomplishing nothing. His “negotiating” skills are limited to bullying, and that won’t work with the leaders of other nations.
When Trump leaves their countries, the leaders of those nations will be laughing and saying, “what a buffoon.”
