Trump’s Big Mouth Has Already Weakened America

Foreign Policy

FEB 13, 2017

Not to mention the damage it’s doing to his own presidency.

During Barack Obama’s presidency, Republicans complained, with good reason, about the Potomac River-wide gap between the president’s words and his actions — in particular about his failure to enforce the “red line” over chemical weapons use in Syria.

Foreign Policy

JAN 30, 2017

The puppet master is leading the Trump administration down a road of carnage.

Don’t worry about Donald Trump — his Republican supporters have been whispering to Never Trumpers like me for months. He doesn’t really mean all of his campaign rhetoric.

You’ll see that there’s nothing to be scared of.
