This cedes control of that whole region of the Middle East to Russia and Iran.
Trump has now strengthened Iran, as well as Russia; all to appease Turkey, an erstwhile NATO ally.
How can GOP conservatives, Saudi Arabia and Israel be happy with this development ?
I said that Trump surrenders again because in my earlier posts I wrote about his surrender of Asia to China and Eastern Europe to Russia.
Western Europe stands alone. Of course, Trump has alienated Mexico and Canada, and taken shots at Australia.
At least he's beloved by dictators, autocrats, kings, thugs and ( sadly) Israel.
Pax Americana is over and the US is going it alone for now. Trump only wants only bilateral trade agreements that no one else really wants. They may have to trade with us since we are such big, rich bullies; but the resentment will fester and eventually hurt us.
I always thought that the goal of trade was "win-win". Not according to Trump. By the way, trade deficits are meaningless "red herrings".
These developments can only harm America in the long run.
