The UK is doing what Trump’s hypocritical and cowardly party will not do. They are abandoning their alliance with the orange man-child’s administration.
Let’s be totally honest here; every Republican is fully aware of Trump’s Constitutional violations. Each of them knows that Trump’s allegiance is to Vladimir Putin and Mohammad bin Salman, not to the 330 million men, women, and children he was elected to serve. With Trump, loyalty is a one-way street. If you do not praise him; if you do not fully support him; you don’t matter. This single fact confirms Trump’s refusal to represent the needs and wishes of every American, and is therefore not the President of the United States. He is the leader of our nation’s “red states” only.
Trump’s “America First” policy has created a great danger to the future of our nation. In today’s world, no country can successfully exist with a policy of ‘isolationism.’ Without NATO there would have been a third world war long ago.
In remarkably outspoken comments, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said on Sunday that ‘Trump’s isolationist foreign policy stance meant the UK was now looking for alternative allies around the world.’
“I worry if the United States withdraws from its leadership around the world,” he told the Sunday Times.
He added: “The assumptions of 2010 that we were always going to be part of a US coalition is really just not where we are going to be.”
Mr. Wallace’s statements came after Prime Minister Boris Johnson distanced himself and his country from Trump’s foolhardy assassination of Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani.
“Over the last year we’ve had the US pullout from Syria, the statement by Donald Trump on Iraq where he said NATO should take over and do more in the Middle East,” Wallace said.
“The assumptions of 2010 that we were always going to be part of a US coalition is really just not where we are going to be.” The UK is seeking new military alliances.
It’s time the Trump Party to be honest. Trump has made personal allies of America’s enemies. He continues to share a bromance with Putin, bin Salman, and Kim Jong-un while belittling Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau and others. Even his relationship with his clone, Boris Johnson, has become tenuous at best.
Trump has placed every American in a greater threat of terrorist attacks. For the last three years the danger facing the American people has come from domestic, white terrorism. However, Trump’s failed policies are creating a clear and present danger from foreign extremists.
