LOS ANGELES: President Donald Trump made history by being the first President of the United States to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that separates North Korea from South Korea. Trump stepped on North Korean soil and shook hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Across the globe, many dignitaries including Pope Francis hailed the event as a baby step toward world peace.
Democrat presidential contenders remain dissatisfied
Two days after bashing President Trump as a warmonger, he was now being attacked for waging diplomacy. The anger and ire because neither Trump or Kim Jong-Un spoke of any vital issues. At least nothing of importance to American liberal Democrats.
Issues with gravitas like:
- Do Israelis cause climate change by refusing to let Palestinian rocket launchers kill them?
- Should transgender illegal immigrants be given taxpayer-funded abortions?
- Should hefty women with bushy mustaches who support Liz Warren be given full Walrusexual rights?
- What are the appropriate colors for the Walrusexual flag?
- Why will Trump not grant full Cryptosexual rights for gay Ron Paul supporters who want to marry their bitcoin
- Should taxpayers fund DNA tests so Liz Warren, Beto O’Rourke and Kamala Harris can finally learn what ethnicity and race they are?
- Should Democrat candidates give each other reparations?
Meanwhile, Trump was trying to prevent an unstable North Korean leader with nuclear weapons from blowing the world to Kingdom Come.
Hating the Handshake
Democrats attacked the handshake photo op as a photo op, even though every single diplomatic event in the history of diplomacy has been a photo op. When Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev shook hands in 1986, it was a photo op. The Cold War did not end on that day. Five years later, it did.
Shaking North Korea’s Kim Jong Un’s hand does not make him any more or less of a monster to liberals. The reality is the gesture could amount to absolutely nothing. However, only a liberal Democrat roots for the failure of something so important to the world.
Patriotic Americans want peace. They want their President to succeed on foreign policy.
To President Richard Nixon, China was a top priority of his administration. In 1967, he had written, “We simply cannot afford to leave China forever outside the family of nations.”
But it was the friendly competition between the Chinese and American Table Tennis teams. It became known as Ping-Pong diplomacy as the US teams were welcomed by Communist China to tour the country. In response, the US invited the Chinese team to America. Throughout the tours, the two teams played exhibition matches.
President Nixon’s February 1972 visit to the People’s Republic was the first time an American president did travel to the Chinese mainland. As part of the eight-day trip Nixon called “the week that changed the world,” the President met with Zhou Enlai and Chairman Mao. Taking the first steps toward normalizing U.S.-Chinese relations
The then and now comparison proving that sometimes the unexpected, the unpredictable is the way to reach the goal.
This is a photo op of foreign policy success. Its importance lost on liberals:
Normal Americans recognize and genuinely regret President Obama’s lack of understanding of human nature leading to the deaths of millions of innocents. (The Death of Global Order Was Caused by Clinton, Bush, and Obama)
A President who knows
Now America has a president who understands how to build relationships due to his lifetime of experience doing exactly that. His harshest critics have never accomplished anything on the world stage that matters. All they do is carp from the sidelines that they would have handled North Korea better than Trump.
When you and I and they know better.
Many of the liberals crying like wolves in sheep clothing have been elected politicians for much of their adult careers. Yet they chose to discuss transgender abortions and label climate change the world’s biggest existential threat. Not recognize the benefits of Peace in between North Korea and South Korea.
Trump and Kim Jong Un can be forgiven for ignoring such weighty issues to focus on boring things such as preventing World War III.
