Why Should Trump Pick A Fight With Putin Over The Failures Of Obama, Clapper, Strzok and Brennan?

Never in the annals of Washington DC’s history have three bureaucrats been so anxious to shout their failures from every rooftop. But that’s exactly what Strzok, Clapper, and especially Brennan have been doing by blasting Trump for not picking a fight with Putin over their failure to stop Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump – Putin Summit Craziness

What Democrats, Trump critics like Senator John McCain, and Witch Hunters like Robert Mueller wanted President Trump to do would jeopardize the lives and safety of American military and intelligence officers around the world and make international relations infinitely more complex and difficult.

Trump Heads To NATO Summit With America First Agenda

President Trump’s recognition that the United States cannot and should not continue to subsidize the quality of life for our allies is hardly a conspiracy theory, but an overdue recognition that the Reagan defense build-up was expended long ago, and if the Western alliance is to be maintained, then all its beneficiaries must pay their share.

Agenda for the Trump-Putin Summit

The president’s willingness to meet with nations at odds with America deserves praise. He need not befriend foreign leaders. However, he should communicate with them. If nothing else, the president needs to ensure that both Americans and Russians better understand each other and the issues which unite as well as divide us.

Behind The Scenes Shifts In American Foreign Policy Led To Summit Success

President Trump said before the meeting, “It’s a process” and so far, the results of the Trump – Kim Summit have been encouraging enough to call the summit a success, however, it remains to be seen if the behind the scenes changes in U.S. policy outlined here will ultimately result in the desired goal of a nuclear-free North Korea.

Scoring the Summit

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media rebuked Ronald Reagan for calling the Soviet Union an evil empire. These days the media is demanding that Donald Trump isolate North Korea as one. Suddenly the peaceniks of the press corps deplore dialogue and demand to know why “Trump is legitimizing” Kim Jong Un. The media didn’t like the sound of Dennis Rodman's opinions. What is he suggesting? That Trump is going to open a door Obama kept closed? Better to keep it closed then, they conclude. Only Trump could go to Singapore while these pacifist creeps turn into born-again cold warriors.

How President Donald Trump Can Make the Most of the Summit

CHQ contributor Doug Bandow offers eight suggestions about how President Trump can make the most of the summit with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Un, including ending the U.S. “hostile policy” toward North Korea in return for Pyongyang’s commitment to denuclearize.

The on-again, off-again Unpredictability Summit

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Usually a deal can be worked out if both sides get something they want. Mr. Trump wants an agreement to erase the North Korean nuclear threat, and Mr. Kim wants to have his picture taken with the president of the United States, the two men displayed as equals. Neither man will necessarily get all he wants, but both can use the photograph for bragging rights. Dizzy Dean famously said, “If you can do it, it ain’t braggin’,” and Winston Churchill said, “Jaw, jaw is better than war, war.” They were both right.

Kim Jong Un Should Have Read 'The Art Of The Deal'

In Trump’s analysis, the latest North Korean verbal assault was an obvious prelude to cancelling the summit, and the necessary counter was to cancel before they did, putting his adversary in the weaker position of having to ask him to come back to the table.

Trump Eyes Wide Open On North Korea

President Trump seems to share President Reagan’s genuine horror at the thought of nuclear war, a deeply held belief that drove Reagan to engage Soviet Premier Gorbachev in both diplomatic negotiations to reduce nuclear weapons and a strategic competition that eventually brought down the Soviet Union.

Where to Hold the Kim-Trump Summit?

The prospective summit is a dramatic, unpredictable step that just might fix a problem which appeared to be insoluble. The location of such a meeting should be equally unique. Both President Trump and Supreme Leader Kim have flair for the dramatic. Why shouldn’t their location choice for the summit reflect a little daring?
